Rob Riggle to play twins in Dumb and Dumber To, plus more plot details

Even though filming is underway, another key role has been cast in Peter and Bobby Farrelly's DUMB AND DUMBER TO. Joining Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Laurie Holden, and Kathleen Turner will be funnyman Rob Riggle. Riggle will play dual roles in the anticipated sequel: a handyman named Travis and his unstable brother, Captain Lippencott.

I can already hear Lloyd Christmas saying the name Captain Lippencott and it makes me smile. Fans have been responding very positively to the first photos from the set of DUMB AND DUMBER TO despite how much older the actors look. We also know that there is some sort of subplot involving Holden's character and the murder of her husband. Up until now that was all we knew, but here are some more details about the story.

Dim-witted best friends Lloyd and Harry hit the road to find Harrys long-lost daughter to donate a kidney for a transplant.

If you remember the first movie (and the awful prequel WHEN HARRY MET LLOYD), Freda Felcher was the little filly who broke Harry's heart. Maybe she could be the mother? We know there was a relationship between her and Lloyd as well, so that could make for an interesting storyline.

DUMB AND DUMBER TO will hit theaters next year for the original's 20th anniversary.

Awesome casting. The guy is hilarious in anything. Especially Step Brothers, The Goods, and 21 Jump Street. Should be awesome to see him play a dual role.

Hmm.

Can't "bad idea" this one since obviously we haven't seen the performance yet, but apart from some great voice work in The Lorax I've only seen Riggle play his one obnoxious character over and over, and these performances always seem to cheapen the films they're in (in most cases they're already pretty cheap). So this is a bit of a red flag for me, but I'm staying very hopeful for the return of Harry and Lloyd.

Nic Cage

considering Cage was up for the Jeff Daniels role (read about it in an article), I think he absolutely needs to be brought in for the sequel. I don't care as what. is there a villain? give him that. heck, this role sounds like it could have been ace Nic Cage material.

The Goods: Buy Hard, Sell Hard

His part as a 12 year old trapped in a 40 years old body was hilarious.
