According to Deadline, Chris Diamantopoulos is the front-runner for the role in the Farrelly Brothers comedy.

Diamantopoulos, who is married to "Ugly Betty" star Becki Newton, replaces Benicio Del Toro (who was originally set to play Moe) and beat out rumored contenders such as Hank Azaria.

Michael Douglas: Catherine Zeta-Jones is doing 'great'

Catherine Zeta-Jones has been helping husband Michael Douglas shoulder a lot within the past year, not the least of which being his battle to beat stage 4 throat cancer, the Oscar-winning actor told Oprah Winfrey on her show Tuesday.

But a few months after Douglas revealed that he'd won his fight with cancer, Zeta-Jones came forward and confirmed that she'd sought treatment for bipolar II disorder. Her rep told CNN in a statement, “After dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check into a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her bipolar II disorder."

Indeed, dealing with a health problem of that magnitude is "very hard [on] the spouse," Douglas told Winfrey. And on top of that, he went on, "My son’s in federal prison, my ex-wife is suing me...it’s kind of hard for the wife to say that she’s depressed."

Phillippe sparked reports of his retirement in an interview with the New York Post's Page Six. Speaking about celebrity, he said, "It's so hard to go out in LA. I'm going to move. I'm going to spend a third of my year in New York."
