Jane Lynch might play a holy terror on "Glee," but she's getting more saintly for her next role: The actress has been cast as a nun in the upcoming "Three Stooges" movie.
According to Deadline, Lynch will play the Mother Superior of an orphanage where Larry, Moe and Curly are raised—and she'll do anything to get them adopted and out of her hair. Oscar winner Cher was previously attached to the role.
The Farrelly brothers comedy, which consists of three 27-minute shorts of typical Stooge high jinks, is set to begin rehearsals next week, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
