...Apparently, [Justin Timberlake is] being considered for a role in the upcoming Three Stooges film and we'll find out in three weeks!
The comedy directing duo Peter and Bobby Farrelly are considering Justin Timberlake as Larry, Johnny Knoxville as Moe, and Will Sasso as Curly!
We can kind of see it, actually.
But don't get too excited because nobody is cast yet and for good reason, as the filmmakers explain:
“We haven’t cast it yet, we haven’t picked anyone. It’s a little tricky, right? Because they all have to be about the same age and even around the same height. We’re waiting for that first person that we’re going to say, ‘This is going to be our Moe, Larry or Curly’ and we’ll build around that. But it’s going to happen soon. It will be within three weeks.”
The Farrellys are also considering Chief Wiggum Hank Azaria for Moe and have reached out to Woody Harrelson and Larry David for the Larry role, but are considering a host of unknowns for Curly.
We can DEFINITELY see Hank as Moe, but overall are pretty satisfied with these options.
So it looks like Andy isn't being considered anymore. Overall, I like these options better (except for losing Andy), because it looks like they're looking at comedians more.
Sad day for Andy fans. =^(
Thanks to Victoria for the scoop!
