But today looks like a very special day, as an encouraging report for the comedy’s production has come to our attention… for once. Apparently, Jennifer Lawrence has shot a cameo for the movie, which should have been kept secret if it wasn’t for The Hollywood Reporter.

First of all, I know, boo THR for spoiling the surprise. Secondly, what the what is J-Law thinking?!? How does such a dumb, possibly trashy, dimwitted little movie fit into the schedule of a reigning Oscar and Hunger Games champion, especially with “Serena”, “American Hustle” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” looming on the horizon? And isn’t a role in “Dumb and Dumber To” a little degrading for her?

Well, who are we to judge for starters? And besides, if she feels this is a smart career move, maybe we’ve underestimated the abilities of the Farrelly Brothers to reinvent themselves. Not to mention this proves once again Lawrence, despite what some may think, is not your standard big Hollywood star.

She’s very much human, has her feet very attached to the ground, plus a fair share of hobbies and guilty pleasures. One of which appears to be watching “dumb” comedies over and over again.

Now, about her participation in “Dumb and Dumber To”, let’s mention she’s unlikely to get more than a few seconds of on-screen time. Maybe a minute or two. But she’s reportedly set to play a Harry and Lloyd love interest from their youth, aka the younger version of Kathleen Turner. Does that sound like a riot or what?
