Jennifer Lawrence, seen here at the 2013 Oscars, usually plays serious roles, but loves comedies, and is reportedly appearing in the "Dumb and Dumber" sequel.
Jennifer Lawrence's "Hunger Games" character Katniss is no dummy, but the actress loves the 1994 movie "Dumb and Dumber" so much that she's making a cameo appearance in its sequel, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The sequel, "Dumb and Dumber To" (yes, that's how it's spelled) reunites slow-witted pals Harry and Lloyd (Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey) 20 years after the first film. Rumors are that the stars will be tracking down the long-lost child of one of the two friends. Kathleen Turner is playing the role of the boys' former crush Fraida Felcher — presumably the mother of said child? — and Lawrence reportedly will play Turner's character in flashback.
It was a convenient job for Lawrence. She is currently filming the first of two "Mockingjay" films, representing the third book in the "Hunger Games" trilogy, in the Atlanta area where "Dumb and Dumber To" is also filming.
Lawrence has praised the goofy comedy before, going as far as to boast to talk-show host Jimmy Fallon that she has the film memorized. "I know every word to 'Dumb and Dumber,' 'Step Brothers' and 'Anchorman,'" she said, then backing up her claim by reciting lines from a spot in the film chosen by Fallon.
"Dumb and Dumber To" is scheduled to open sometime in 2014.
