Jim Carrey Out, But Paul Giamatti In for The Three Stooges?
More updates on the Farrelly Brother's wacky Three Stooges movie. SlashFilm recently discovered an article on Boston.com that has a few interesting casting changes. They're reporting that Jim Carrey, who was originally on-board to play Curly, has since dropped out, but they don't have a replacement just yet. Additionally, they say that Paul Giamatti has signed on to replace Sean Penn as Larry, since he is taking time off from acting. Giamatti seems like one of those "a little too easy" casting choices, as he's pretty much a perfect modern version of Larry, but does that make this any better? Nope, I still hate this entire concept!
We previously ran an article in June about how Peter Farrelly didn't seem confident that the Three Stooges movie would even happen anymore. His fear was that casting would just continue to fall apart after Sean Penn. However, this update today makes it seem like they might be on the right track again, at least signing on Giamatti, but still missing Curly. I have a feeling (or maybe it's just a desire) that this will fall apart once again. It just seems like one of those doomed projects. As much as they'll try, casting big name actors is just asking for too much, and there's no way it'll work out they way the want it. They might as well give up now.
