CAST THIS: The Three Stooges

Dec. 7, 2010by: Paul Tassi

A year ago, this movie seemed to be on track. Directed by the Farrelly brothers, the Three Stooges film was going to star Jim Carrey as Curly, Sean Penn as Moe and Benecio Del Toro as Larry.

But 2009 seems miles away now. Carrey left because of health reasons, as he couldn't safely gain weight to play Curly, Penn left due to MGM's financial problems, and Benecio? I guess just because it seemed to be the cool thing to do.

But the Farrelly's (even though they left themselves at one point) are now fully on board despite not having a cast, and so we need some STOOGES.

These are three tough roles to cast, as each character is a comedy icon, and the group has to work together as a trope and have a good dynamic going on.

Carrey seemed like an obvious choice, with Del Toro and Penn less so, but Hollywood is a big place, and I imagine we could find a decent cast if we put our heads together. The look helps, but can be crafted if necessary I imagine. Just keep Jack Black nowhere near this, OK?

Last Week: BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER

We learned a week ago that a Buffy reboot was coming whether we wanted it or not, and so it needs a hero to take up the stake once again. Who did you pick?

1. Sarah Michelle Gellar (95%) 2. Hayden Panettiere (3%) 3. Amber Heard (2%)

Yeah, that's an approximation, but that's pretty much what it broke down to. I told you not to pick SMG again, as it wasn't a terribly realistic option without Whedon, but I should have known you'd do it anyway, and there were barely enough alternative options to list.

I could see Hayden or Heard doing it, but anyone besides Gellar is going to cause huge fan backlash, and really at this point fans are the only people who would be stepping up to see a Buffy movie anyway, right?

Alright, give me some Stooges!

Stooges!

Though it might be hard, need to pick actors who not only can look the part, but act the parts too..also the story, the characterists, etc have to be true to the oringinal short films...I want to see a Three Stooges movie that is everything a Stooge fan could ask for!

William Shatner should play all three roles. That would be epic.

For What it's Worth

Zach Braff or Luke Wilson for Larry, Kevin Smith or Nick Frost for Curly and Nick Stahl or James Franco for Moe

MY GOD NO

NO KEVIN JAMES, PLEASE! Don't we want a funny movie? What they need to do is SEARCH for an undiscovered actor. Hell, look at The Blindside, they found the perfect guy for that role. I know this is a big name movie, but I'd rather have people that remind me of the old actors than people that just happen to be fat or whatever the heck you use as a judge.

Three Stooges are not funny. So how about just dropping this movie idea.

I suppose if this was ineveitable:

Moe: Depp or Leguizamo or Bale
Larry: Sean Penn or Bradley Whitford
Curly: Dominick Lombardozzi or Dave Attel
Shemp: Fred Ward

Damn, this is hard...

I'd love to see this movie done right... Also, I'd like some low-level actors in the roles, if only so they could appear in a Live Action Scooby Doo Movies episode. I've always wanted to see one of those done right.

How about:
Curly- Frank Caliendo/Will Sasso
Larry- Bill Hader/Andy Samburg (dear God, no rapping either!)
Moe- Steve Carrel/ Jim Carrey
Let's face it: if Jim wants this movie, he HAS to go with a thinner character. Let's see it happen, some how some way!

The only reason I say Bale for Moe is cause the guy needs to lighten up a little bit, amirite?

I'm shocked Hayden Pannettiere even got 3% of the votes. Are you kidding me? Heard would be second best.
