Dumb and Dumber To‘s Jim Carrey has tweeted the first pic from the set of his upcoming flick, and it has a twist of irony to it.
In a bit of self-promotion, the image that Jim Carrey tweeted from the set of Dumb and Dumber To was actually reminiscent of the humor we would expect from the film that he and Jeff Daniels made famous for the Farrelly brothers. The two are seen with their famous stupid grins and familiar hair between trailers. The two actors, who portray Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunn (Jeff Daniels), aren’t looking at the camera, though. In what might appear to be a bit of self-promotion within the movie, Jim Carrey and his costar are holding a certain book upside down.
The book in question is Jim Carrey’s own children’s book How Roland Rolls, and the two are holding it open and look to be amused by it. The image is unfortunately not from Dumb and Dumber To, as Jim Carrey simply used it to promote his book, but the picture alone should spark some laughs anyway, especially with the actor’s name blatantly showing on the cover.
We’re hoping that the film is set a few decades after the previous film starring the two, as their age is unfortunately showing. Hopefully also, the humor used in Dumb and Dumber To will still feature some classically stupid lines that comedy fans will be using themselves for years to come. The first film sparked such classics as, “Would you look at the butt on that … Yeah, he must work out.”
Perhaps Jim Carrey’s new book How Roland Rolls, which is available as of today, will be featured in the movie somewhere as a sort of tongue-in-cheek reference. It would certainly be a clever kind of subtle advertising, if the companies involved with Dumb and Dumber To let Jim Carrey actually re-enact this scene of him and Jeff Daniels “reading” his book.
How Roland Rolls comes out TODAY but it may be a little too sophisticated for Lloyd and Harry! Yep… THEY’RE BAAAAA… http://t.co/bhrYxNPKbv
