‘Three Stooges’ Movie Has A Random Cast

You know a devine comedy when you see it, right? There’s Something About Mary, Dumb & Dumber, Stuck On You. Well, maybe not the last flick, but the other two are classics! And all three of those films were directed by the Farrelly Brothers, a fixture in the humor community.

The New York Times has reported that the Farrelly Brothers will be directing a new feature film about the Three Stooges, the slapstick comedy group from the mid-1930’s. All sounds great, right? Well yeah, but the cast seems a little….random?


Sean Penn, recent Oscar-winner for his political biography Milk, will play the part of Larry Fine. Kind of a random casting here I think. He goes from political gay activist to slapstick comedian in less than a year?


Benicio del Toro will play the part of Moe Howard, yikes. I guess I can see it. Remember that there will be tons of make-up, helping out the Spanish del Toro’s case to play an icon in comedy.


And finally, Curley Howard will be played by the hilarious Jim Carrey. Carrey will put on a fat suit to play the role and I cannot wait to see this. According to reports, Carrey is not officially locked in for the role but he needs to be. Jim alone will make this movie good. He has a history with the Farrelly Brothers and he is arguably one of the greatest comedy actors in recent times.

So the question is: Will you pay the $10.50 to see it in the theatres? How about the $7.50 for a matinee show (because that’s such a deal)? Waiting until it hits RedBox?
