Sean Penn to play Larry in Farrelly Bros. “The Three Stooges”

MGM and the Farrelly brothers are closing in on their cast for “The Three Stooges.”

Studio has set Sean Penn to play Larry, and negotiations are underway with Jim Carrey to play Curly, with the actor already making plans to gain 40 pounds to approximate the physical dimensions of Jerome “Curly” Howard.

The studio is zeroing in on Benicio Del Toro to play Moe. (from Variety)

My brain is preventing me from having an emotional reaction to this news, clearly protecting me from the inevitable confusion embolism.

  1. Farrelly Brothers. Three Stooges.

    Urge to kill… rising…

    *looks around house and neighborhood* I think I could dredge up enough olde timey pitchforks and torches if anyone wants to march on MGM.

  2. Carrey is gaining 40 pounds for this role? Does he think he’s fucking De Niro in “Raging Bull?” Can’t he just borrow the “Shallow Hal” fat suit?

  3. God that sounds like the worlds worst movie. I refuse to see Jim Carey as my beloved Curley. 🙁
