Mama June Cameo In 'Dumb & Dumber To' Wasn't Cut According To Jeff Daniels

Allegations that "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" matriarch June "Mama June" Shannon is dating a convicted child molester led TLC to cancel the reality program last month, but it hasn't altered her film debut in the upcoming release "Dumb And Dumber To." Shannon makes a brief appearance onscreen opposite star Jeff Daniels.

"She was in the scene at the premiere I saw, so apparently she's still in it," Daniels told HuffPost Live in a Friday appearance to promote the film. "Hope whatever's going on, she works it out. She [Mama June] was a nice gal for that morning."

Daniels wasn't consulted about the decision to keep her and her daughter's cameo in the film, but the choice doesn't offend him.

"No one called me about making an edit," he recalled. "... [but] I couldn't care less. I shoot the movie. It's part of being an actor. You give them the movie. It goes to the edit room, and you're done. I don't worry about it, other people are paid to worry about those things. I show up, if it's in, it's in. If it's not, it's not."
