Jeff Daniels, who recently won his first Emmy Award for his role as a TV anchorman on HBO's "The Newsroom", will soon return to the big screen as Harry Dunne in "Dumb and Dumber To," the upcoming sequel to his monster 1994 hit "Dumb and Dumber." The film, co-starring Jim Carrey, hits theaters in November.

Below, watch Daniels appearance on this morning's TODAY in which he talks about the upcoming comedy. "I've been lucky (with) the people I get to work with," Daniels said. "Jim's got a one-of-a-kind gift ... and to marry what I can do with him is a joy. We blend well together."

Peter and Bobby Farrelly return to helm the DUMB AND DUMBER sequel, as well as rewrite the original script written by Sean Anders and John Morris. Oscar-winning HUNGER GAMES star Jennifer Lawrence has signed on for a small cameo in the upcoming sequel as the younger version of Kathleen Turner. THE WALKING DEAD's Laurie Holden, Turner, and Rob Riggle are also featured in the film.


The original buddy comedy was a box office hit, grossing $127,175,374 in the United States, and $247,275,374 worldwide, and topping the holiday season film gross. While initial reception towards the film was mixed, Dumb and Dumber has since obtained a cult following and has spawned a TV animated series, and a 2003 prequel.
