Has 'Three Stooges' discovered its Moe?

After weeks of searching, it appears an actor has finally been found to play Larry and Curly's cranky counterpart in the upcoming "Three Stooges" movie.

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.

The theater and TV vet previously starred in "The Kennedys" miniseries, appeared on "24," and played Robin Williams in the 2005 TV movie "Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of 'Mork and Mindy.'"

Diamantopoulos joins Sean Hayes as Larry and Will Sasso as Curly in the comedy, which consists of three 27-minute shorts filled with the trio's typical nyuck nyucks.

    What exactly new do they think they can do with the 3 Stooges slapstick comedy? I agree. Leave it alone. Hollywood is going sequel/prequel crazy and its really becoming tiresome. Some classics should be left just as they are. Hollywood had gone too far this time.

    Well a dumb and dumber sequel wouldn't be bad except they already did it and just like this crumby remake, they recast Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, and it was terrible.

    Why can't the Farrelly's just leave a classic alone. No one will ever do the three stooges better than the three stooges themselves. They should do a sequel instead to their true classic Dumb and Dumber instead. Paul

      At least these three men have charitable causes they do alot of work for. All the conservative morons do is live by their greedy motto "What's mine is mine, what's yours is mine."

    Man... Horrible casting. Possibly the worst I've heard of in a while.

    I'm sorry, but aside from Will Sasso, the cast of this movie is ridiculous. Hank Azaria would have been a much, much better choice, and don't get me started on Sean Hayes as Larry. Hayes is great, but as Larry??? PLease.
