this just seems kind of……odd….
MGM and the Farrelly brothers are finally slapping together their high-profile cast for “The Three Stooges,” a comedy project the filmmakers have been developing for years. Sean Penn is set to play Larry, and Jim Carrey is in negotiations to play Curly. Benicio del Toro is a rumored possibility for the brothers’ taciturn leader, Moe.
The studio is looking to start production in the fall for a 2010 release slot.
Didn’t Michael Chicklets (or whatever his name is) play Curly in some TV Stooges Bio-pic? Jim Carrey? I guess as long as he can be reigned in and not go overboard. Sean Penn as Larry??? Just can’t see it…but then he’s done so much stretching as an actor I guess anything is possible. If Danny DeVito wasn’t so short I think he’d make a good Moe, not that any of the Stooges was all that tall. And what about Shemp? In his heyday Walter Matthau would have made a great Shemp. Any other ideas???
