Admit it. Every time you read graffiti in a bathroom stall, you think about Cam Neely. You think about his Oscar-worthy performance as tough guy 'Sea Bass' in the immortal 1994 comedy Dumb & Dumber. It's one of the most famous athlete cameos in movie history.

Famous enough that Sea Bass is BACK, baby. It was rumored months ago, but now it's official: Neely recently confirmed he has filmed a scene for Dumb & Dumber To, the sequel, which reunites stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne. It's Sea Bass' third film appearance, technically. He made a split-second Easter egg cameo in 2000's Me, Myself & Irene. A forgotten Carrey joint. Barely remember it. Any good? May have to revisit.

Neely, now the Boston Bruins president, told CBS Boston it actually looked like Sea Bass wouldn't make it into the movie, but directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly approached him after Boston bowed out of the playoffs and said they could shoot his scene in Boston on a green screen. It's in the books. Now we wait to see if it makes the final cut when Dumb & Dumber To (amazing title) hits theatres Nov. 14.

Here's a look at Neely first gracing the silver screen in Dumb & Dumber:

Dumb & Dumber To will be a guilty pleasure. It has to be better than the prequel, right? It'll be worth checking it out just to see a Hall of Famer in action. Fingers crossed that the rumors of Milan Lucic as Sea Bass Jr. come to fruition.
