Jennifer Hudson lands role in 'Three Stooges'

The ever-growing "Three Stooges" cast has added another member. According to Deadline, Jennifer Hudson has landed the role of Sister Rosemary in the Farrelly brothers’ “Three Stooges.”

The Oscar winner isn’t the only nun on set, though: Larry David has signed on to play Mother Mengele and Jane Lynch will fill the role of Mother Superior.

Deadline’s guessing that Hudson will play the nice nun at the orphanage where Larry, Moe and Curly are raised, as Lynch’s Mother Superior will be busy doing whatever it takes to get the three pranksters adopted and out of there.

With Hudson on board, there are now three nuns for each of the “Three Stooges,” spots that were filled after an exhaustive search. To recap: Sean Hayes landed the role of Larry, Will Sasso will be your Curly, and Chris Diamantopoulos will portray Moe.

    You can't kill off the white people because who would pay for your welfare? No wait, you wouldn't just end up stealing and doing the crime that you are doing now but it will be worse because you wont have your welfare from us white pigs. You see we can all our selves names and you can call us names, it doesn't bother us because when we pass the mirror we are proud and happy to be white.

      Black Americans make up 12% of the U.S. population, which makes up 35% on welfare which leaves 65% not on welfare. So can you please tell me why White Americans make up 47% on welfare? Maybe because White Americans have a bigger population here on US soil. But any who, if you are going to say all African Americans are on welfare, PLEASE GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!!!! I Love Blogging!

    The original Three Stooges worked because of the time period...which can pretty much be said of most comedies. Translating it to modern times is ridiculous. The Stooges was pretty much nonstop slapstick comedy...this cannot be done now and be funny. Who wants to see 90 minutes of eyepoking and slapping? Let alone that monkeylipped cow Hudson being a part of this.

      Not sure if being racist has anything to do with it, the cast looks weak. I suppose making a Malcom X movie and casting Charlie Sheen to play Malcom Little would be ok just use my imagination with it.

      Diamond Dave, please read more carefully next time. Jennifer is NOT playing the Mother Superior, that role will be filled by Jane Lynch. Ms. Hudson will be assuming "the role of Sister Rosemary". I wish she hadn't taken this role though, the Stooges are lame.
