The Farrelly brothers said they planned to start shooting their “Three Stooges” film in April, and it looks like they’re trying to stay true to their word.
Both Andy Samberg and Paul Giamatti have reportedly been in talks for the role, with James Marsden being the latest actor rumored to be attached to the part.
The job was initially thought to be going to Sean Penn, with Benicio Del Toro and Jim Carrey playing the parts of Moe and Curly, respectively. All of those names have since dropped from the feature, which will consist of three 27-minute shorts.
Johnny Knoxville also appeared to be in the running for the still-empty role of Moe, but he announced back in March that he wasn’t taking the job. Last week, "The Simpsons" star Hank Azaria was considered to be in the lead for landing the part.
Considering who’s already cast, who do you think should take the role of Moe?
