The Three Stooges movie is an adaptation of the television show with the same moniker that aired on American national television during the 60s. It starred Moe Howard, Joe DeRita and Larry Fine who completed the infamous and hilarious trio of Moe, Joe, and Larry. The show is a slapstick comedy which highlighted the three characters’ daily misadventures and foolhardiness. The TV show’s success is mainly attributed to its unapologetic humor and utter disregard for earnestness.
The 3 Stooges movie, just like the television show, will mimic the kind of slapstick comedy that the original Moe, Joe, and Larry achieved. This adaptation will feature some of Hollywood’s most esteemed actors including Chris Diamantopoulous who will play the role of Moe, Sean Hayes who claimed the Larry character, and Will Sasso who will portray the role of Curly.
Supporting cast includes Glee’s Jane Lynch as the Mother Superior who leads the orphanage where the trio was raised, Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara as Lydia, and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson as Sister Rosemary. Cameo roles will also be played by an interesting pool of personalities including Jersey Shore’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Jennifer “JWoww” Farley, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and Paul “Pauly-D” DelVecchio. With this motley cast, the movie will surely be a fun riot on the silver screen.
Before the three main characters have been given their respective roles, other Hollywood A-listers have been considered for The Three Stooges 2012. These A-listers include Academy Award winner Benicio del Toro, Hank Azaria, Jim Carrey, Johnny Knoxville from Jackass, Andy Samberg from Saturday Night Live, Shane Jacobson, and two time Academy Award winner Sean Penn. For some reasons these actors were not able to commit to the project hence the roles were eventually given to Chris, Sean, and Will.
