Giamatti is new Penn?

Jun. 23, 2009by: James Thoo

Apparently, after Sean Penn dropped out of THE THREE STOOGES movie (as Larry Fine opposite Benicio Del Toro and Jim Carrey), Paul Giamatti might be the actor to take his place. When asked about it, director Bobby Farrelly mused that Giamatti would be a "sensational Larry".

Sean Penn is one of my favorite actors so it's tough to say that anyone will be able to successfully fill his shoes. That said, Paul Giamatti has a kind, wise face and that makes me feel more comfortable. Does that make any sense? No, not at all. But then again neither does love. Or the fact that this story even exists. E! is saying Giamatti could "quite possibly" play Larry in THE THREE STOOGES movie and then in the same article say that they spoke to the Farrellys, who said they have an offer to someone else? And that Giamatti's rep said there had been no talks at all. Outstanding.
Extra Tidbit: The Farrelly Brothers often cast athletes in their films.

Conan just said that Giamatti's denying the rumors that he's involved in this. And what Conan says is fact. So there. :)

Why is this even being considered or made?

The TV movie with Chiklis as Curly was the closest to the Stooges we'll ever get. Farrelly Brothers will probably just throw in jokes about cum, farting, and juvenile shit they usually do.

The reason I don't like Penn is because he's a complete jackass every time he opens his mouth. He would get banned on the Joblo forums, bc he doesn't allow at all for the possibility that his opinion is not all-powerful and 100 percent right.

As an actor, he's very good, but his personality is just a huge distraction to me.

I was actually looking forward to seeing Penn in this thing. I love Paul Giamatti in everything. Someone else is gonna get the part. Oh, well.

And are people just hard on Penn cuz he wrote that damning letter to Parker and Stone? Never mind that he's one of the greatest actors working today, and I feel for once like that's not just my opinion. He's not often very funny, which is why I was looking forward to this. But anyone who is familiar with Penn beyond his most popular work knows he can

Sean Penn seems like a fucking douche bag ALL THE TIME, therefore I'd rather not see him go ape shit on the writers halfway through The Three Stooges and demand more tense moments where he can scream and yell at things with a different hairstyle.

I love Giamatti, glad to see him get this over Sean Penn. Penn's got a stick up his ass all the time, I can't see him being funny anyways.

Giamatti would be great

I thought he was confirmed but it's all rumours at the moment. Still I think he'd be a fine replacement for Penn.
