Casting Roundup: Dumb and Dumber To, Richard Gere, And More Love Interests For Mindy Kaling

dumbanddumber News is so very very slow, but hey, it’s the Friday before Labor Day. I expect to be flooded next week.

• Looks like that Dumb and Dumber sequel no one is asking for is actually going to happen, with Kathleen Turner now the first new cast member joining the sequel to the 1994 comedy. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels – after much back and forth – are both returning to reprise their roles, as are the Farrelly brothers to direct. [Variety]

• After Arbitrage turned out to be a surprise hit and marked something of a comeback for the actor, Richard Gere has lined up his next movie. He will star in Franny, written and to be directed by Andrew Renzi, who workshopped it through the Sundance Screenwriters Lab. Gere will play “a hedonistic philanthropist who ingratiates himself into the lives of a newlywed couple in order to re-create the life he once had.” [Deadline]

• Indie flick Forget Me Not has cast Jake Abel, Nia Vardalos and Philip Baker Hall. The family drama follows two elderly lovers and their warring families. Sort of a Romeo and Juliet for the nursing home set. [The Wrap]

Mindy Kaling’s Mindy is getting some enviable love interests next season – despite the fact that Chris Messina is clearly perfect for her, but whatever. In addition to Timothy Olyphant and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Glenn Howard, Mad Men star Ben Feldman has also lined up to woo the funny lady in a multi-episode arc. [TVLine]
