Sean Penn Returns to "The Three Stooges"

Posted: January 5th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Sean Penn Returns to "The Three Stooges"Submit Comment
After his marriage fell apart, actor Sean Penn dropped out of the Farrelly Brothers' "The Three Stooges," in which he was set play Larry alongside Jim Carrey (Curly) and Benicio Del Toro (Moe).

Now, director Bobby Farrelly (Dumb and Dumber, Kingpin) has revealed to the Boston Herald that Penn has reconsidered dropping out, and will return to take on the role. "We got him back," he said. "He always said he wanted to do it after, you know, taking care of his family."

The Farrellys were planning to replace Penn with Paul Giamatti, but that didn't work out, so they couldn't be happier to see their original choice return. Unfortunately, Carrey is no longer interested in the project, even though both Del Toro and Penn are still attached. Stay tuned.

I really don't think this will work at all.

Wait what? Carrey is no longer in it? So he gained all that weight for nothing???

This film needs Jim. This could possibly be better than Dumb and Dumber. I don't see why he wouldn't do this. The F bro's are doing it, i'm guessing the stooges are one of his inspirations, and two other well known actors are in the trio. What could possibly be the reasons for dropping this? Are you not up to the challenge Jim?

Well if you like early Jim Carrey then you'd most likely like Dumb and Dumber. If you like early Farrelly brothers movies then you'll probably like Dumb and Dumber. If you don't like either of those, you probably wouldn't like it.

SWEEEEEEEEEET!!! Man that is good news! Jim Carrey I could take or leave but having Del Toro and Penn make this a sure fire winner. Totally stoked!

as to Sean Penn, as one of the 3 stooges and with respect to the other 2 actors...WHO IN THE WORLD CAST THESE PEOPLE,they would not be able to cast a dog fight...in casting you have to find a person who can portray the ESSENCE of the person...whether the actor in known or unknown..of all the movies I have seen this has not happened very often..and it won't here...me

Personally... I don't think Penn ever disappoints (unless you're married to him, I gather).
