Dumb and Dumber Reunion! Jim Carrey Crashes Jeff Daniels Interview and Lovefest Ensues

Dumb and Dumber Reunion! Jim Carrey Crashes Jeff Daniels Interview and Lovefest Ensues
It’s been 24 years since Dumb and Dumber became a comedy sensation, and stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels still have nothing but love for one another.

On Tuesday’s Conan, the two actors shared a surprise reunion when Carrey crashed Daniels’ interview.

“I thought for sure they’d tell him and it’s great that they didn’t,” Carrey, 56, said of the surprise, after the two hugged and returned to host Conan O’Brien’s chairs. “Because I wanted to come out here and say it in front of the world: You’re in town and you don’t call me?

‘Dumb and Dumber’ Reunion! Jim Carrey Crashes Jeff Daniels’ ‘Conan’ Interview (Video)
Just when we thought Jim Carrey had fallen off the deep-end, he goes and does something like this — And Totally Redeems Himself!

Carrey surprised Jeff Daniels on Tuesday’s “Conan,” a gag that turned out much better than the duo’s “Dumb and Dumber To.” The visit proved that the fellas behind Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne have not missed a beat — they’ve only missed each other.

“I wanted to come out here and say it in front of the whole world: You’re in town and you don’t call me,” Carrey ribbed his old pal.

“I’ve been watching all the press and stuff and I’ve gotta tell you: This ‘Looming Tower’ thing sounds funny,” the comedic genius and busy artist as of late teased the star of Hulu’s very serious 9/11 series.

The two actors then took an awesome trip down memory lane to 1994’s “Dumb and Dumber.” The always “on” Carrey even fit in a groping joke about Dustin Hoffman while recalling a phone call the two shared about the “Ace Ventura” grad’s on-screen chemistry with Daniels.

Hoffman has been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct. That part is obviously no laughing matter, but we won’t judge the value of the actual diss for our readers.

Conan O’Brien Totally Ruins Jordan Schlansky’s Italian Road Trip (Video)

Conan O’Brien Totally Ruins Jordan Schlansky’s Italian Road Trip (Video)
Jordan Schlansky will never have peace and quiet so long as he works for Conan O’Brien.

On Wednesday’s “Conan,” the duo travels to Italy, which is a regular pilgrimage for sophisticated producer Schlansky. As he is wont to, Schlansky rented a classic red Fiat and drove the beautiful countryside of Tuscany. And it was almost a spiritual experience.

Unfortunately, goofball O’Brien ruined the whole trip for his friend and occasional viral video companion.

While Conan mercilessly mocks Schlansky, Jordan bores some local dogs.

Poor Schlansky can’t even listen to his favorite operas along the way, as the rights issues would prove tricky for cable channel TBS. There was no way Conan was going to sit there in silence.

Yes, the whole road trip is a total disaster, one that certainly doesn’t get any better when O’Brien breaks out the sound effects or the 1962 car dies.

Sean Penn has slammed Steve Bannon, who produced the Penn-directed 1991 movie “The Indian Runner,” as “c-word charming” and a “crook.” During an appearance on “Conan” that aired Thursday night, Penn said, “I noticed that, without any need for them, we had two kind of cheerleader-looking new makeup assistants on the call sheet that, as the director of that movie, I had not called for and yet it was on my very minimal budget to make this film they were being paid.” Penn joked that Bannon “exerted the same level of charm he does today” back then, and said that the...

Conan O’Brien thinks he’d be the perfect stunt — and body — double for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in his new movie, “Rampage” — but the training for it went anything but smoothly. On Wednesday night’s “Conan,” the late-night host pitched himself to Johnson, comparing his stature — mostly his chest — to the movie star. “I don’t see what you have that I don’t have,” the comedian said to the actor. “You’re a good-looking guy… I clean up pretty nice.

2018 WGA Awards predictions: ‘Last Week Tonight’ is favored in a wild variety talk field of eight

2018 WGA Awards predictions: ‘Last Week Tonight’ is favored in a wild variety talk field of eight
Eight is enough in the Best Variety Talk Series race at the Writers Guild Awards. The category features a whopping eight nominees, but the winner Sunday will likely once again be “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,” according to our latest predictions.

This would be the second straight and third overall win for John Oliver and his writing team. “Last Week” won its first WGA Award in 2015 when there was a single variety series category for sketch and talk shows. The WGA established two separate variety sketch series and variety talk series categories the following year.

But with eight nominees this year — double last year’s field — nobody is a sure thing. “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” is on “Last Week”’s heels with 6/1 odds, followed by “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (20/1 odds
