Having delighted viewers with her hilariously bumbling antics as The Walking Dead’s Andrea, Laurie Holden will bring those comedic skills to playing the female lead in Dumb And Dumber To, the Farrelly brothers’ revisiting of characters who—like so many on her former show—logically should have died by now. According to Deadline, Holden will use her inability to see people for who they are to play “Adele Pichlow, the well to do wife of a doctor who is up to no good and who plans to use Harry and Lloyd to cover her tracks.” (Presumably the Farrellys figured that, seeing as they’re already recycling here, they may as well reuse the “scheming wife hires total idiots” subplot of their Three Stooges movie.) She joins the returning Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, as well as the recently announced Kathleen Turner. She will sleep with whichever one of them is the worst.
