Photo: Sofia Vergara Could Join Stooges Cast
The actress would join Sean Hayes and Will Sasso, already confirmed to play Larry and Curly.
The Farrelly brothers are reportedly trying to lure Vergara into taking the part of a devious woman who makes the stooges believe she’s the wife of a dying man, and promises the threesome a lot of cash, if they snuff the old man in his sleep.
If you think this sounds a little bit too convoluted for a Three Stooges film, and more like an Iggy and the Stooges are in charge of production, here’s a few more details to corroborate that thought:
The film apparently revolves around the Stooges growing up in an orphanage, then leaving in their early 40s, and adjusting to life in the outside world. The film will apparently be divided into three half-hour shorts.
Brad Pitt, Hank Azaria, Johnnie Knoxville, Sean Penn, Jim Carrey, and Benicio del Toro have all been rumored to play one or another stooge at some point. Physical slapstick comedy stopped being all the rage, about at the same time that color TV came out, so we can’t help but wonder, will this film ever get made? And if it does, will it be “a street walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm,” or more like “God’s Forgotten Son” ?
