Johnny Knoxville: from stooge to The Three Stooges?
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.
