I didn't realize there was an original three stooges film thread, so this was my thread I created and posted in there. ->Three Stooges Film
Improbably, Sean Hayes Is Your Latest Stooge: Just One More Stooge To Go! - MOVIE TALK on Yahoo! Movies
Someday, friends, we will live in a world in which a "Three Stooges" movie actually exists, so that there is no longer any need to type about casting decisions, potential casting decisions, fantasy casting decision, castings of molten steel. Two months ago, we noted that the once-dream cast of the Farrelly brothers film -- which have included Jim Carrey, Benicio Del Toro, Mel Gibson and even Sean Penn -- had devolved down to the level it probably should've been on all along. That cast was Johnny Knoxville, Andy Samberg from "Saturday Night Live" and an Australian actor named Shane Jacobson. Now the cast has devolved again from that. By the time the movie is made, it'll star the actual decomposed bodies of the original Stooges.
Anyway, Will Sasso has already been cast as Curly, and now the project has its Larry: It's Sean Hayes, most famous as Jack in "Will & Grace." For what it's worth, Sasso looks a lot more like Curly than Hayes looks like Larry. (Suffice it to say that Hayes is decidedly more handsome than Larry was -- frankly, it would be difficult to find an actor who wouldn't be -- but that's nothing a good wig can't fix.) Larry was always our favorite Stooge: He was the understated link of the Stooges, as much as anything involving the Stooges could possibly be called "understated."
This leaves the Moe left to be cast, and we feel fairly certain it will not be Sean Penn. It will be outstanding when Moe is cast, though, because it will be the last time anyone writes about the casting of the Three Stooges movie ever again. Honestly, this has been going on since "There's Something About Mary." It's not too late to cast noted Stooges fanatic Mel Gibson. Let's start another rumor! We can't let it die!
Will Sasso as Curly; Sean Hayes as Larry; Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe
