Will Sasso is a frontrunner for The Three Stooges...wait, Will Sasso?

03.22.2011

We must have stumbled back to things that are relevant to the 90's.

According to THR, Will Sasso is a likely frontrunner for Moe, Larry or Curly in the Farrelly brothers THE THREE STOOGES.

At first this news was just being thrown back and forth between bloggers online. Now it's surfaced that there was truth to the talk. In revelations that aren't surprising, the blogging community expressed that Sasso would be best suited for the part of Curly.

While I did make the "joke" that Sasso is only relevant to the 90's, he has had plenty of steady work over the years. Sasso was in the Katherine Heigl crap romcom, LIFE AS WE KNOW IT and did some television voice work for THE CLEVELAND SHOW and FAMILY GUY. He also lent his pipes for the upcoming, ARTHUR CHRISTMAS.

I know a few of you have mentioned Sasso when it came to your own picks for the film.

In related news, Cher tweeted last Friday that she would love to have a supporting role in the film. As long as she doesn't do anything near BURLESQUE, I don't care.

Extra Tidbit: I have to direct you to something that never fails to make me laugh--Kenny Rogers' JACKASS.

meh

I love this man in comedic roles. He's the reason I watched Mad TV in the first place. After I saw his Steven Seagal and Kenny Rogers impressions, I was hooked. I'm just neutral about the whole 3 stooges movie in general.

I could care less about this movie. I can't picture anything other than a quick cash grab. The Stooges will probably be in modern times, too, which always sucks. Feels way too late to be done right by the Farrelly Bros., too. But Sasso cracks me up. Go look up clips of him as Randy Newman recording duets w/ various other artists.

Will Sasso as Steven Segal is still one of the best Mad TV skits ever, so I have faith he can do and hope we finally start to see him in more movies after this.

Hey, say what you will, but Will Sasso was the best thing about Mad TV. Steven Segal, Randy Newman, Kenny Rogers, Elvis...so fucking funny.

Good choice

To be honest.....the role wouldn't be that hard. It's more manneurisms it seems. I think he would be fine, I'm not worried about his casting, at all....

I always thought Will was funny in Mad TV. I guess we will see what he does with this role if he gets it. I really wish it would have been a bio pick though. Similar to what Robert Downey did with Chaplin. Someone needs to make a Buster Keaton bio film now.

Sign him up! Sasso is perfect for Curly. However! I agree w/ the person below,this feels like it will never get made---> like Ghostbusters 3!

I don't believe this. I'm pretty sure this movie is never really going to happen.

seriously if i see another three stooges casting rumor ima fucking kill myself. Theres been one once a week all month. no one cares for this movie i guarntee it will bomb. i guess having will saso in it will at least keep them from overpaying another actor. id imagine he would do it for free.

When we first heard of this movie it sounded kinda interesting, Jim Carrey, Benicio Del Toro and Sean Penn! Shit yes I would see that, who wouldn't? But now it sound like they are just scraping the bottom of the barrel! Come on Will Sasso? Ok so he is fat, bald and did curly on the poor man's SNL? God just looking at this dude pisses me off! I always thought he sucked!

yes

I've seen his work and I believe he can pull it off with no problem, especially if he plays Curly.

I've always thought he was funny and was sad he never really found his calling after MADtv. This seems like a good fit for him. Oh, and his Randy Newman is amazing: [link]
