Come Again?

Benicio Del Toro, Sean Penn, and Jim Carrey.

Who are the last three people you would never expect to see in a movie about the Three Stooges.

Why, then, are they being talked about to fill the legendary roles of Moe, Larry and Curly.

Described as “Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest,” the movie is going to be directed by the Farrelly Brothers. That at least explains why Carrey is being courted, as he’s their biggest seller. Carrey’s also the biggest and best in physical comedy right now, so the only thing he has to do is gain 40 pounds and shave his head.

If you squint really hard – in the dark – we guess you might be able to picture Penn as Larry, but we don’t understand why the Farrelly brothers cast the unfunniest man in Hollywood for a movie about the funniest men of the 1930’s. That’s fine, though. He can act, so maybe he can just act funny.

But the guy who just played Che Guevara? Can he– and I’m honestly being serious when I ask this –can he even get through a line of dialogue without mumbling?

Are they casting for Shemp? Because I hear that Michael Clarke Duncan is available.

I think Sean Penn is the most bizarre of the casting choices. Penn is an amazing actor but I cannot see him in the role of Larry. I hope I'm proven wrong the same way I was when I heard of Heath Ledger playing the joker!
