Here's what the actor had to say, through his publicist.
"I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer, after all it's implied in the title."
The Farrelly brothers have had casting roadblocks in the past involving the funnyman. He was set to star alongside Sean Penn and Benicio Del Toro in The Three Stooges before the project fell apart. The brothers eventually went with Sean Hayes, Will Sasso, and Chris Diamantopoulos. Of course, it will be a lot harder to re-cast a role like Lloyd Christmas for a sequel, especially for a comedy as popular as Dumb and Dumber.
Sex Drive writers Sean Anders and John Morris wrote the screenplay for the Farrelly's to direct from. It's not clear yet if this casting departure will mean the end of this sequel or not.
Dumb and Dumber To was released November 14th, 2014 and stars Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden, Rachel Melvin, Steve Tom, Don Lake, Patricia French. The film is directed by Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly.
