WORST. IDEA. EVER.
Stooges logo

It looks like the Farrelly Brothers' Three Stooges movie is going ahead, despite contract complications with Warner.

That's bad enough - quite bad enough, really - but Jim Carrey has been signed to play Curly. Good God. Getting Jim Carrey to play one of the Three Stooges is like painting a dildo red.

Incredibly, Sean Penn is slated to play Larry - yes, that Sean Penn. Carrey and Penn: now there's chemistry for you.

Worse again, they're evidently trying to get - wait for it - Benicio del Toro to play Moe. I'd be hard pressed to come up with any actor whose temperament was more diametrically opposed to that of Moe Howard. What - instead of poking Larry in the eyes, he's going to brood at him?

And, oh yeah, this is not a biopic - it's the further adventures of the Three Stooges set in the 21st century. And something tells me that the Farrelly Brothers won't be attempting an incisive deconstruction of slapstick violence. In fact, they'll most likely take everything the Stooges did not have going for them - and add farts.

Do these people not have agents? Or sense?

Stooges
Ummm..... no.

That animation looks like a cut-to-add graphic for Lie to Me. ;)

Curly? Jim Carrey can't even duplicate George Segal (although he did a passable job of playing Frank Gorshin and John Astin's unbearably hyperactive lovechild).

Hollywood needs to just stop it already with the remakes.
