Johnny Knoxville: from stooge to The Three Stooges?

03.10.2011

Nyuk nyuk nyuk! JACKASS frontman Johnny Knoxville may be starting to leave behind those days of painful pranks with scripted comedies, but that doesn't mean he's giving up abusing himself and others.

The Farrelly Brothers want Knoxville to star as bowlcut-haired halfwit ringleader and chief face-slapper Moe Howard in their long-in-development THREE STOOGES movie. Why, I oughta...

According to Variety, it's just a matter of Knoxville accepting, and then they'll start to fill out the trio with an appropriate Curly and Larry. And maybe a Shemp. The Fox project previously had Benicio del Toro, Sean Penn and Jim Carrey involved as the classic slapstick characters.

The plan is to make STOOGES a PG-rated movie divided into three separate "episodes". Knoxville previously worked with the Farrellys on THE RINGER.

Could be good....Could be bad

I think its poor casting, I could be wrong. They need to find actors who will look, talk and act like The Three Stooges. I just have a bad feeling that they will throw in the wrong cast and produce a movie, that worthy of a tribute to the great comedy team..The Three Stooges.

This movie/series of movies is just a bad idea. You cannot recapture that lightning in a bottle that the original stooges had. I would much rather see someone give the original stooges a serious biopic film about the struggles they endured both physically and mentally. As some one who has great love for the Stooges, and has very fond memories of watching the old stooges serials re-runs (if you want to call them that) on TV. This whole project breaks my heart. And I actually love the

Perfect

His great for the part. He'll take the slapstick hits that need to be taken and enjoy it. Scott Krinsky from CHUCK would be good for Larry and for Curly id say Will Sasso or maybe even Bobby Moynihan from SNL.

Jackass

I like the casting...alot. I think Knoxville will do a great job and it's awesome to see him getting more movies roles.

As for the other two characters, how about Michael Chiklis for Curly and Paul Giamatti for Larry.
