Few will be able to say they played a part in the cultural revolution known simply as Dumb and Dumber To. But only one man – Rob Riggle - will be able to say it twice. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the former Daily Show correspondent has been cast in a dual role in the upcoming sequel, portraying both a handyman named Travis and his twin brother Captain Lippencott.

Twin characters all but guarantee some kind of gag where Harry and Lloyd mistake one Riggle for the other, with extra-hilarious results. And the title of “Captain” may imply that Harry and Lloyd will be on the run from the police, which would make sense given what we know about the story so far. The sequel will see Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels‘ dimwitted duo searching for Daniels’ long-lost child, and forced to contend with a bloodthirsty Laurie Holden for some reason. But, considering that this is Dumb and Dumber To, Riggle’s character might just as easily be a naval captain or a lunatic who thinks he’s a spaceship pilot. No matter what type of captain this Lippencott really is, his is one of the last major roles left to be cast in the film.

That means Dumb and Dumber To will soon be upon us. Prepare yourselves for the glorious golden age that will soon follow.
