'Dumb & Dumber' 20 years Later — 6 Actors Who Were Almost Harry & Lloyd
Two decades ago the Farrelly brothers introduced us to two the two finest tuxedo afficionados in modern history: Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne. If it wasn’t for Dumb & Dumber, we would have never known when man landed on the moon, what “Soup Du Jour” means, or statistically whether driving to the airport is more dangerous than flying. It’s truly an historical, monumental cinematic masterpiece. The dumbest movie ever made just turned 20 and it’s hard to imagine what life was before we all met Harry and Lloyd.
We could have met an entirely different pair of brilliant buffoons. Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels weren’t always the first in line for their famous roles. It’s hard to imagine the film without them, and it truly would have been a different movie without them, as Peter Farrelly revealed Carey improvised many of his lines, including the entire “Most Annoying Sound in the World Scene.” Watch it again and watch Daniels realize he has no idea what’s actually going on.
Let’s see what Dumb & Dumber could have looked like with the other casting choices.
