The announcement of the casting for the film adaptation of the slapstick 1930's comedy "The Three Stooges" was announced earlier this evening. Needless to say, it's definitely an odd pairing.
"Sean Penn, Jim Carrey and Benicio Del Toro have been lined up to star in a new movie based on 1930s comedy icons The Three Stooges.
Director siblings the Farrelly Brothers are behind the new project, about the slapstick antics of Moe and Curly Howard and Larry Fine.
Oscar winner Penn is expected to play Larry, with Carrey and Del Toro taking on the roles of Curly and Moe, respectively, reports Daily Variety."
This is going to be interesting. I can see Carrey and Penn hitting it off well. The only one I seem to have trouble with is Del Toro. As great an actor he is, I wonder if his abilities outstretch to comedy as well? Let's see.
