Sequels Without Their Original Stars: 10 Celebrities Who Bailed (PHOTOS)

THANKS, BUT NO THANKS
Sequels Without Their Original Stars
Jim Carrey recently confirmed he won't be starring in the Dumb and Dumber sequel, Dumb and Dumber To.

"Carrey grew increasingly frustrated by New Line and Warner Brothers, who he felt showed a lack of enthusiasm regarding the project," a rep blasted, in a statement.

He may not be the only one: Carrey's co-star in the 1994 film, Jeff Daniels, also bailed on the sequel.

Dumb and Dumber is a comedy classic -- but what will become of its follow-up without Carrey and Daniels?

The actors aren't the only celebs to skip a sequel: Lindsay Lohan ditched Mean Girls 2, John Travolta didn't appear in Grease 2, Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn't a part of Terminator: Salvation, and Jodie Foster bowed out of Hannibal.

Interestingly, none of those sequels had the impact of the original.

Check out the celebs who bailed on their classic film's sequel by clicking through our gallery.

    I don't like the new movies without Jodie. She is just perfect for that role. Even if Julianne Moore is one of my favorite actresses, Jodie is the best Clarice Starling ever.

    Amanda Seyfried??? She is on screen for like only 15 minutes. The main stars are Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams or Tina Fey.
