(USA TODAY) He promised us on Emmy night: Jeff Daniels was taking his best-actor award and heading for Atlanta to start work on Dumb and Dumber To. Today, he provided the proof on Twitter.
Daniels posted a goofy selfie with Jim Carrey of the two of them in costume as Lloyd and Harry from the set of their highly-anticipated-by-some sequel.
"We're back!!!" he crowed in the tweet.
The picture is priceless: He looks dopey and disheveled; Carrey looks demented and demonic, with his famously weird haircut. Fans of the original D&D, a massive hit in 1994, will be pleased.
After Daniels picked up his surprise Emmy Sunday night for his role as news anchor Will McAvoy in HBO's drama The Newsroom, he went backstage to chat up the media. What did he plan to do next, he was asked.
"We're going to party until dawn and then I'm going to hop on a plane to Atlanta and start shooting Dumb and Dumber To," he said.
Earlier this month, Carrey posted his own selfie on Twitter of his mouth in character, complete with the signature chipped-tooth smile. He captioned it, "GESS HUUZ BAK BICHEZ?"
