‘Dumb and Dumber 2′ Adds ‘Walking Dead’ Star Laurie Holden and Two Others
Fans of AMC's 'The Walking Dead' know that Laure Holden (Andrea) didn't have a great season 3, but that's ok because she's just landed her next role opposite Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in the 'Dumb and Dumber' sequel, 'Dumb and Dumber To,' and she'll be joined by two others.
THR reports that Holden will join the film, along with Steve Tom and Rachel Melvin, as "Adele Pichlow, who is secretly poisoning her husband, Dr. Pichlow (Tom) so she can run off with his money. Her nefarious plans also include killing off her step-daughter Penny (Melvin), Lloyd and Harry so she can run off with the family's handyman unscathed." Melvin will be the female lead of the film.
According to Bobby Farrelly, who's directing the sequel with his brother Peter, "The story revolves around the fact that one of them may have sired a child. They want to go and find the child because he’s having a kidney problem and he wants to ask him for one of his kidneys." 'Dumb and Dumber To,' which takes place 20 years after the original, was recently dropped by Warner Bros. and then picked up by Universal.
Although Holden found her spotlight on 'The Walking Dead,' she had scored roles on 'The Shield,' horror movies 'The Mist' and 'Silent Hill,' and was even The Thing's first girlfriend in 'Fantastic Four.' As for Tom, he is known for 'Seven Pounds' with Will Smith and 'The Kid' with Bruce Willis, while Melvin comes from the 'Days of Our Lives' world and can be seen next in 'Zombeavers' and 'Mr. Intangibles.'
