Dumb and Dumber To is turning into a true reunion as writers-directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly today revealed that Brady Bluhm, the actor who portrayed Billy in 4C in the 1994 original, will reprise his role for the much-anticipated sequel.
“It’s official!” the brothers posted to Twitter. “Billy in 4C (I just thought he was really quiet) is returning in #DumbTo! Played again by the highly underrated Brady Bluhm.”
Billy, fans will remember, was the blind neighbor boy to whom Lloyd (Jim Carrey) sold Harry’s (Jeff Daniels) headless bird, Petey. Following the release of the original film, actor Bluhm went on to voice Christopher Robin in a series of direct-to-home-video “Winnie the Pooh” films. He recently starred in a film that he also co-created and edited, The Last Man(s) on Earth.
The news comes in the wake of yesterday’s announcement that Kathleen Turner is going to be playing Fraida Feltcher, the “babe who worked for the tractor company” that both Harry and Lloyd once courted.
Dumb and Dumber To is going into production shortly with both Carrey and Daniels returning.
