'Book of Mormon' leads Tony Award nominations

The nominees for this year's Tony Awards were announced Tuesday, and the musical "The Book of Mormon" leads with 14 nominations, including one for best musical.

The Broadway production from the creators of "South Park" has some competition in that category from the musical "The Scottsboro Boys," which nabbed 12 nominations overall. "Anything Goes" picked up nine Tony Awards noms, and the Daniel Radcliffe-starring musical "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" is nominated for eight.

"The Merchant of Venice" is the most-nominated play this year,  with seven nods, including one for its star, Al Pacino.

Larry David to play a nun in 'Three Stooges'

The "Three Stooges" cast probably can't curb their enthusiasm now that curmudgeonly comedian Larry David is set to join the upcoming Farrelly brothers' flick.

According to Deadline, David is circling the role of Mother Mengele, one of the nuns running the orphanage where Larry, Moe and Curly are dropped off and raised. As Marquee previously reported, "Glee" actress Jane Lynch has already been cast as the orphanage's Mother Superior, who just wants to get the trouble-making trio adopted and out of there.

The star of HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" will join Sean Hayes as Larry, Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe and Will Sasso as Curly in the upcoming comedy. The film is set to begin rehearsals this week.

Do you want to see David in the "Three Stooges" movie?

"Yes, we shouldn't have killed him," the "Daily Show" host told his audience Monday. "Now the terrorists are going to want to attack us. But you know what, even when they do, you know who won't see it? Bin Laden. Because we shot out his eyes, and now he lives in a pineapple under the sea."

The New Yorker also joked that bin Laden didn't know his days were numbered.

Actor, director, student, teacher, singer, soap opera star, social media critic, host of major awards shows (we didn't say he did them all well). The dude is a veritable James of all trades.

The recent news that Franco is set to direct a dance theater program got us to thinking about a few things we'd like to see Franco take a stab at. FULL POST
