It's been a busy, if schizophrenic, week for Jeff Daniels: He won his first Emmy on Sunday night for the eggheady-Newsroom, then morphed back into character for the long-in-the-works Dumb & Dumber sequel, with the grammatically cringe-worthy title Dumb and Dumber To.

As he said in the press room at the Emmys of the sequel to the 1994 comedy, "There are some things we are going to do in Dumb and Dumber 2 that make the toilet scene [in the first movie] look lame…pales in comparison." And the best? "I get to work with a comedic genius [Jim Carrey.]"

Carrey shared his own photo via WhoSay of the duo reading a book, upside down natch. It's also an advertisement for the children's book itself, which Carrey wrote, "How Roland Rolls comes out TODAY but it may be a little too sophisticated for Lloyd," he wrote on WhoSay.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the book tells the story of a wave named Roland who's afraid his life will be over on the day he hits the beach. Thee-book also comes with original songs.

Daniels told Us Weekly that Harry and Lloyd are older but no wiser: "We're middle aged but still that stupid." The sequel, per, IMDB, follows the "2 dimwits as they head out in search of one of their long lost children in the hope of gaining a new kidney."
