Will Sasso cast as Curly in Three Stooges film

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Jim Carrey came close. Several other names were in the mix. But it’s “MADtv” stand out Will Sasso who finally has been cast as Curly in the Farrelly brothers’ upcoming Three Stooges film for 20th Century Fox.

The casting has been confirmed by THR, which said that the movie, which is not a biopic of the three physical comedians, “is being divided into three vignettes telling an overall story.”

So now that the Farrellys have their Curly, they need to cast their Larry and Moe.

Speculation over at Deadline has Hank Azaria and James Marsden as the frontrunners. That seems like a big step back from Sean Penn and Benicio Del Toro, who were initially in play for the roles. But no offers have been made.

Part of me is excited that the project is moving forward. The Farrellys have been passionate about making a Stooges film for years, and I actually think it might be better to go with a lesser-known name like Sasso over Carrey, who would bring his own identity (and baggage) to the role.

More on The Three Stooges as it develops.
