The Three Stooges Trailer Reveals Awkward Transition To Modern Times
The actors Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos and Will Sasso are clearly putting their all into impressions of the original Stooges, but that's really only the beginning of the problems here. The Stooges were icons of their era, vaudevillians who translated their slapstick schtick to the movies when movie comedy was still being born. Everything about film has changed a lot since then

The Three Stooges Teaser Poster Wants Us To Just Say Moe
It took a long time and a series of fits and starts before Peter and Bobby Farrelly’s The Three Stooges got off the ground. But now that the cast is in place – with Sean Hayes (Larry), Will Sasso (Curly) and Chris Diamantopoulos (Moe) in the leading roles – we’re actually at the point where we’re starting to see promotional material for the comedy, which will be distributed by 20th Century Fox.

Jennifer Hudson Joins The Nuns In The Three Stooges
Hudson will join Jane Lynch and, uh, Larry David as the nuns who take in the young Stooges, who will be played as adults by Sean Hayes (Larry), Will Sasso (Curly), and Chris Diamantopoulos (Moe). Deadline speculates that Hudson will be playing the nicer nun

First Look At Moe And Larry Filming The Three Stooges Movie
Wondering how Sean Hayes can possibly play Larry Fine? I mean, the guy looks nothing like him. Or does he? The first ever photos from the set of The Three Stooges have appeared online and they show Sean in full Larry Fine attire. It sort of works.

Seventh Heaven Star Stephen Collins Joins The Three Stooges Crew
Variety's initial report had him playing the villain, but Fox got in touch with them to put the kibosh on that particular rumor. It could mean they got their facts wrong, or that Collins's character doesn't start off as the villain, meaning the filmmakers want to keep that plot development under wraps

Larry David Will Play A Nun, Mother Mengele, In The Three Stooges
He'll be working in the Catholic orphanage, right alongside Mother Superior Jane Lynch, that takes in the Stooges as young orphans. It's probably no coincidence that his Mother Mengele shares a name with the infamous Nazi doctor who performed awful experiments on concentration camp victims

Larry David Will Probably Have A Role In The Three Stooges Too
The EW article refers to David as an old friend of the Farrellys, which may seem surprising given that their brands of humor-- Curb Your Enthusiasm's harsh sarcasm versus Dumb and Dumber's gleefull anarchy-- seem pretty opposite. But if you want proof

Jane Lynch Will Raise The Three Stooges
Jane Lynch is joining the cast of The Three Stooges and that’s perfect casting. Actually, casting Jane Lynch any time, any where is also perfect casting. Doesn’t matter what you give her, she’ll knock it out of the park. In this case she’s particularly perfect because she’ll play the long-suffering head nun...

Chris Diamantopoulos Is The Frontrunner To Play Moe In The Three Stooges
When Sean Hayes was cast as Larry Fine in the Farrelly brothers' The Three Stooges earlier this month, I all but completely gave up faith in the project. Our own Josh Tyler gave the script a positive review and Will Sasso is the closest we have to a Curly look-a-like, but the whole thing feels very "B movie" and is based on a concept that probably shouldn't be executed.

Sofia Vergara In Talks For Female Lead In The Farrelly Brothers' Three Stooges
While I can't say that I am a devout fan of Modern Family, I will say two things about the series: 1) the show is often quite funny and has a solid cast and 2) Sofia Vergara is extremely hot. This article pertains to the latter statement.

Sean Hayes To Play Larry Fine In The Farrelly's Three Stooges Movie
When it was rumored two weeks back that James Marsden would play Larry Fine in the Farrelly brother's The Three Stooges, I called it "fairly strange" before remember that this was the same guy who played Cyclops in the X-Men movies. Who knew that not only would that rumor turn out to be false, but that they would find someone even less appropriate for the part?

Hank Azaria And James Marsden The Frontrunners For Remaining Three Stooges Roles?
With the project set to go into production in the middle of next month and one of the dust settled in regard to their first casting selection, we can probably assume that the rest of the actors to be in Peter and Bobby Farrelly's The Three Stooges will be announced fairly soon.

Will Sasso Will Play Curly In The Farrelly Brothers' The Three Stooges
When it was revealed a few days back that Will Sasso was the frontrunner for a role in the Farrelly brothers' The Three Stooges, two thoughts went through my mind: 1) he's probably looks more like Curly than any other actor minus prosthetics, 2) what the hell has Will Sasso been in since he left Mad TV?

Will Sasso Is Still Likely To Be A Stooge For The Farrelly Brothers
After all the rumors about who the Farrellys might bring on board, including the recent will-he-or-won't-he scuffle about Johnny Knoxville starring that eventually ended with the Jackass star not on board at all, it would be a little anticlimactic for the relatively unknown Sasso to be the first official cast member

Johnny Knoxville Will Not Be Playing Moe In The Three Stooges
Back in January it was reported that Jackass star Johnny Knoxville and SNL castmember Andy Samberg were being considered for the roles of Moe and Larry, respectively, in the Farrelly brother's version of The Three Stooges. Only a few hours later, Peter Farrelly spoke to the press and said that the story wasn't true.

Johnny Knoxville Is Moe In The Three Stooges
Johnny is on the verge of signing a deal with Fox that would have him as Moe, the lead in the Three Stooges movie. Their sources claim the part was offered to him and the Farrellys have been sitting around for awhile waiting on him to accept. So the question here is, were Peter and Bobby Farrelly...

Sean Penn Is A Stooge... Again
So...we have a Moe and a Larry, but no Curly. Fantastic. As if this whole bloody affair hasn't been exhausting enough. And, what's more, it still seems like the strangest bit of casting I've seen in a while. After all, these two actors are better known for being a revenge-hungry father from Boston and Che Guevara than slap-stick comedians.

Paul Giamatti Is A Stooge, Jim Carrey Is Not
Paul Giamatti will be replacing Sean Penn in their Three Stooges movie, but in another stroke of bad luck, Jim Carrey has dropped out.
