Johnny Knoxville in the lead for role of Moe in The Three Stooges
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Johnny Knoxville has been rumored for the role of Moe in the upcoming Farrelly Brothers THE THREE STOOGES for quite some time (even though the Farrelly’s have denied it), but it’s been reported that he’s close to being locked into the role which means Larry and Curly should be easier to cast. That also means that Benicio Del Toro is out, which is a good decision on his end. Confirmation for casting should come shortly, which is good since shooting is set to begin sometime next month. THE THREE STOOGES will follow the famous trio in a film that will be broken down into three different segments of their lives. Rumors have also floated around that Cher is up for the role of the nun at the orphanage but she is not confirmed yet.
I’ve mentioned before that the Farrelly’s really need a hit, especially since HALL PASS fell a bit flat at the box office. I think casting Johnny Knoxville as one of the leads in your film is not the best idea, but he does have a decent following so we’ll have to see how this all pans out.I still think it’s going to be a fail.
