Here’s the first look at Fox’s The Three Stooges, the Farrelly brothers’ long-in-the-works take on the comedy trio. Its winding road started with the original plan to cast Sean Penn, Benicio Del Toro and Jim Carrey in the lead roles; eventually, the brothers went with Sean Hayes, Will Sasso and Chris Diamantopoulos. It’s due out April 4, 2012. So, do they pull off getting Larry, Curly and Moe right? And do they pull off putting them in modern day?

Jennifer Hudson Joins ‘The Three Stooges’

Mike Fleming

EXCLUSIVE: There are now three nuns in The Three Stooges. Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson has signed on to play Sister Rosemary. She joins Jane Lynch, who’s playing Mother Superior, and Larry David, who’s playing Mother Mengele. I’m betting that Sister Rosemary is the nice one at the orphanage where the Stooges come of age, despite the best efforts of the nuns to get the precocious trio adopted. The 20th Century Fox comedy has begun production, with Peter and Bobby Farrelly directing Chris Diamantopoulos (Moe), Sean Hayes (Larry) and Will Sasso (Curly).

Larry David Joins ‘Three Stooges’ In Mother Mengele Role

Mike Fleming

Peter and Bobby Farrelly’s 20th Century Fox comedy The Three Stooges cast continues to get more and more inspired. They’re closing in on a deal with Larry David to play Mother Mengele, the unfortunate nun who runs the orphanage where the Stooges grow up and learn to create mayhem. Setting a Jewish guy to play a nun certainly sounds like David is playing against type. I served two tours of duty in Catholic elementary schools, and now that I think of it, Larry David in a Nun’s Habit pretty much squares with my memory of how all of those teachers looked back then. David’s deal is being finished, and the Seinfeld co-creator will join Jane Lynch, who plays Mother Superior, Chris Diamantopoulos, who’s signing on to play Moe, Will Sasso, who’s playing Curly, and Sean Hayes, who signed on recently to play Larry Fine. Production begins in May. David’s repped by WME.
