  • The scene in Dumb and Dumber where Lloyd does the most annoying sound in the world was not scripted in the film and was actually done while filming as you can see in the scene when Jeff Daniels is shown trying not to laugh.
  • He co-starred with Luis Guzmán in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events in 2004 and who played as the adoptive father of his character Lloyd in the prequel Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd.
