HOLLYWOOD – Jeff Daniels invents helicopter.
Newsroom and Dumb and Dumber star Jeff Daniels today announced that he has invented a new helicopter. The Whirly-Car is essentially a sedan fitted with rotor blades. Daniels spoke EXCLUSIVELY wit the Studio Exec about the invention:
When I was a kid, the idea was that we would all be driving by heli-car in the future but something went wrong. I was waiting for Elon Musk to come up with something but that asshole seems more intent on going to Mars. So I figured, if I really want this to happen, I’m going to have to do it myself.
The Whirly-Car will be available on the market, but only on a very exclusive basis.
I’m making each one individually in my garage. So I’ll try and hustle but you know…
Jeff Daniels is appearing in Airwolf in 2018.
HOLLYWOOD – The Farrelly Brothers are to return to gross out comedy with a film based on the 22016 GOP convention.
The team who brought us Dumb and Dumber, There’s Something About Mary, Shallow Hal and Dumb and Dumber To are to make a motion picture based on the Republican Convention which closes in Cleveland tonight.
Peter and Bobby Farrelly spoke EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec about their new project. Peter spoke first:
We came down to the convention as we just wanted to soak up the vibe but pretty soon we just started filming. The original idea was to use that material as research material basically. And write a script off of that, exaggerating and what not for comic effect. It turns out that we can basically just use the footage we have. There is nothing that we can think of which is grosser or more comic than what we witnessed.
If anything, we have too much material. I don’t know what’s funnier, Ted Cruz getting booed or Melania Trump copying Michelle Obama’s speech! Perhaps it’s Ben Carson insisting that Hillary Clinton is inspired by Lucifer, or Chris Christie performing some kind of mock trial of the former Secretary of State. It was sick and crazy and that’s coming from the guy who was involved in Movie 43.
The Republican Convention concludes this evening with a speech from Donald Trump.
HOLLYWOOD – Dumb and Dumber 3 is back on with new stars Donald Trump and Sarah Palin.
They haven’t yet won the White House but they’re already making inroads into Hollywood. News came in today that Sarah Palin and Presidential candidate for the Republican Party Donald Trump have signed up to star in Dumb and Dumber 3. The sequel will see the two ‘politicians’ take over from Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in the lead roles. Former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin dropped by the Studio Exec Bungalow to talk about the film:
We’re going to play Harold and Lloyd’s out of town cousins. People are always saying that I’m stupid and Donald’s a buffoon and I thought why not take that and run with it. You remember when I went on Saturday Night Live with Tina Fey? Well, this is the same thing.
Aren’t you worried it will ruin your reputation?
Reputation? Ha! Listen they’ve been laughing at me ever since I said I wanted to run for office. Well, as Gandhi once said ‘First they laugh at you and then they get angry and then you win’ and he should know. After all he did invent the bicycle!
But what if you become Donald Trump’s running mate and then win. Will you still do the film?
Listen when I set my mind to it, I go all the way, unless I get bored. Or something better comes up. So definitely yes-ish.
Dumb and Dumber 3: in Da WHITE house will be released in 2018.
HOLLYWOOD – Silent comedy star and bespectacled accident prone icon Harold Lloyd today began legal proceedings to sue Jim Carrey.
Jim Carrey, along with the Farrelly brothers and Jeff Daniels, are accused by Harold Lloyd of using his name in two movies which he deems ‘harmful to my reputation as a comedian’.
Star of The Freshman, Safety Last and Girl Shy, Lloyd spoke EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec:
When I first encountered the characters Lloyd Christmas and Harrold Dunne in Dumb and Dumber I took the names to be an affectionate tribute to my comedy even though the film itself was based on lewd humor in poor taste, rather than my death defying stunts. I didn’t really understand the reason they would name check me but it is nice to feel you are being recognised so I made no move. However, things changed when I saw the ineptly spelled Dumb and Dumber To. This was a genuinely awful film. About as funny as a child’s freshly dug grave. And I felt I ought to take action to disassociate myself from this dross before it irredeemably damaged my career.
But didn’t you die in 1971?
Yes, and the fact that I’m issuing this law action from the beyond the veil that those who living call life speaks to how strongly I feel about the issue. Even kicking the bucket didn’t hurt my reputation as much as these nincompoops have. I’m sorry about the blue language, but Heavens to Betsy they have me worked up into a lather.
The case is due to be heard in the West Hollywood courthouse later this month and if it succeeds could as the first postmortem case of intellectual property rights lay a dangerous precedent. Steve Martin for one will be following the case closely as Phil Silvers, Spencer Tracy and Peter Sellers are thought to be considering a class action lawsuit against the famously white haired comedian.
Jim Carrey, Bob and Peter Farrelly and Jeff Daniels refused to comment.
HOLLYWOOD – Film makers Bobby and Pete Farrelly were left red faced yesterday when it was revealed they had misspelled the name of their own movie Dumb and Dumber To.
In a mishap worthy of their two moronic characters Harold and Lloyd, played by Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey, the title printed on all the promotional material and even the title sequence of the film itself was either missing a W or perhaps missing another O.
Jim Carrey, whose career has been plagued by mistakes of late such as Mr Popper’s Penguins, was relatively sanguine:
This kind of thing happens all the time. It’s a simple typo that wasn’t caught and the whole thing repeated itself. Yes, it’s a little embarrassing for a huge studio picture like this to make such a foolish error, but no one got hurt and if the film ends up losing money because of it, it’s still going to do better than The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.
Jeff Daniels, however, was less forgiving:
I beat Bryan Cranston to get an Emmy! For The Newsroom, of all things. I’m a serious actor and I expect the same level of professionalism from all those around me. Some people have even suggested that it is some kind of joke! That is arrant nonsense. We deal in sophisticated wordplay and political satire. How is misspelling a word funny? In what way? It’s just carelessness. Care. Less. Ness.
Meanwhile, Bobby and Pete Farrelly tried to brush the whole debacle off as some kind of misunderstanding:
The title Dumb and Dumber To is not a mistake. It is a joke. We misspelled the word deliberately because that’s a dumb thing to do and the film is called Dumb and Dumber. You see. It’s kind of… I mean, it IS funny, isn’t it?
Dumb and Dumber Two is currently in theaters.
HOLLYWOOD – Following the successful reuniting of Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey vehicle Dumb and Dumber To comes the news that work has already started on a third film, provisionally entitled Dumb and Dumber 5.
We spoke to Dumb and Dumber star Jim Carrey about the new film:
While we were making the new film we were having so much fun me and Jeff and we said to the Farrelly brothers hell we’d love to do another. And they said they couldn’t because they wanted to do a sequel to their Three Stooges movie because it was such a huge hit and we said that wasn’t a huge hit, and they said no they’d been joking. That’s the kind of fun we were having!
So Dumb and Dumber 5 will be…
The thing is people will say Dumb and Dumber 5, but surely this is the third film, and it is, but we’re using 5 because they’re so darned stupid that they can’t count! Do you get it? Yeah.
So how is it working with…
No, I mean the thing is there’s the first film then this second one and then the next one should be called Dumb and Dumber 3 but it is actually Dumb and Dumber 5.
Are you at all worried about being typecast as…
Of course, we were kicked around Dumb and Dumber 4 but then someone said, what about that shitty film that they tried to pass off Dumb and Dumber: When Harry Met Lloyd? And we all went yeah and so Pete and Bobby got together for about an hour and half and they came back with Dumb and Dumber 5 and the room burst into spontaneous applause. It was… genius.
Dumb and Dumber 5 will be released in 2015.
