Not content with simply winning an Oscar and starring in two blockbuster franchises, Jennifer Lawrence is attempting to break into the world of comedy by earning herself a role in Dumb and Dumber To. The Hunger Games star filmed a cameo on her day off, when she and her Mockingjay co-stars stopped by to meet Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. Lawrence will reportedly play a younger version of Kathleen Turner's character Fraida Felcher and will appear in a flashback. There's no word yet on whether Harry and Lloyd will also appear in the flashback, or who will play them. 

Probably no one is more excited about this casting news than Lawrence herself, as she knows all the words to the original Dumb & Dumber film — a skill she showed off on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, which you can check out below. Considering her other two favorite films are Step Brothers and Anchorman, she's painting a pretty vivid image of her brand of humor. Let's also not forget that this is a girl who spent much of the press tour for the first Hunger Games film talking about how she pees when she's nervous, and detailing all of the gross habits she practiced during filming. She's essentially a Farrelly Brothers dream girl. 

 

Dumb & Dumber To will pick up 20 years after the original, and will follow Harry and Lloyd as they journey to find Harry's long-lost daughter. The film is scheduled for a 2014 release; in the meantime, Lawrence will appear in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which will hit theaters on November 22, and American Hustle, which will be released in December.
