Johnny Knoxville Offered "The Three Stooges" Lead

Posted: March 11th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Johnny Knoxville Offered "The Three Stooges" LeadSubmit Comment
Peter and Bobby Farrelly (Dumb and Dumber) are working on "The Three Stooges" and have said that the three actors who will play the leads must not only act like the characters but also resemble them.

Now comes word that "Jackass" star Johnny Knoxville has been offered the role of Moe, the leader of the group. As soon as Knoxville is officially on board, the Farrellys will build the rest of the cast around him.

The plan is to divide the PG-rated film into three, 27-minute segments driven by physical comedy, which Knoxville is known for.

Other actors rumored to be in the running are Andy Samberg, Justin Timberlake, Woody Harrelson, Larry David, Hank Azaria and Will Sasso.

Big difference between the physical comedy of the years between 1936 and 1959, and now, and to make The Three Stooges more 'modern' to appeal to a broader audience implies that the newer comedic antics won't have much in common with that of the original shorts.

I never found Jackass funny anyway, because 1., it wasn't funny, and 2., physical humor without story context is just rootless amusement for dumbasses.

Exactly, Mink. Thats why I love Jackass. And my flat screen and my consumerism and all sorts of other things that make me a very very happy retard.

As far as physical comedy goes... I'd say Jackie Earle Hayley played it off better in Louie than anyone i've seen probably since RDJ in Chaplin. What knoxville is, is a good looking stunt man.. Not a physical comedian.. There is a huge difference.

Knoxville can be quite hilarious though IMO. He's also got the voice for Moe I think. So you never know, the Farrelys always have about 30% of my faith. See what happens I suppose... OOORRRR They could all f*ck off and go straight to hell and come up with an original comedy.

So Knoxville, get Shannon Price for the other one (Gary Coleman would have been the perfect 3rd.)... so who will play the 3rd Stooge?

"What knoxville is, is a good looking stunt man.. Not a physical comedian.. There is a huge difference."

You get the Captain Obvious ward for the day, dude, noting that jackass isn't true comedy (no f*cking story context), it's a stupid stunt ensemble performed by a guy a bit better looking than Clint Howard after a highway collision with a burning tanker truck.

Hell yes! I have NO idea why anyone would evert think that knoxville wouldn't be perfect at this role. He is going to be a PERFECT Moe. Slapstick is his cup of tea.

If anyone is going to head up the 3 stooges is should be him. He will have so much to offer the character, his fellow cast, & his crew. He is going to be what makes this film.

"Just call it Jackass 4" ???? wtf? That's one of the most retarded comments I've ever heard.

He's like Moe in every way .... He's just as annoying, just as thrifty with his money (I mean, c'mon. He must be doing Jackass 3 for fun.) and just as alive and alert as the late Moe Howard is.

I don't know. That look of regret Steve-O had in the trailer for Jackass 3D (after he became sober) in the Porta Potty, when he realized he would be covered in his (and probably others) feces from the " stunt " .... hell, I held my side, I laughed so f*cking hard at him.

Not WITH him.

AT him.

@Lance Eluction Gillstein

Don't get your knickers in a twist. You know Knoxville's not gonna kick anyone's ass because he couldn't afford the lawsuit, so shut the f*ck up about that mess.

I didn't watch Avatar because unlike your f*cking retarded, monolithic, monosyllabic brain, I actually look for a plot and story in a movie, not just people joking around, laughing and flinging poo at each other. Although, I never have stepped in your house, so that may be a regular Friday night tradition at the Gill home. If so, be sure to wear protection, retard.

f*ck you and the sperm that were dumb enough to pregnate the ovarian egg that conceived you.

Great retaliation Max Rockatansky Junior. I saw your last 3 movie quizes. The Losers (8/10) & A-Team (7-10)? That seems awfully high for a couple of sh*tty movies?

Plot & story don't make a movie. It's the characters & telling of the story (cinematography, directing) that make a film worth watching. That's why Knoxville is perfect for this role. To type cast him as simply "a poo flinger" is absolutely ridiculous.

Also,
Monolithic & monosyllabic brain? Did you just type "simple" into a synonym database? Neither of those work in the context you used them. It's probably best you just stop while you're behind since each comment you drop makes you seem even stupider than before.

On another note,

Andy Samberg's going to be cast as Larry. I'm calling it now. Andy & Larry have the same personality & look very simular. Some of the funniest moments in the 3 Stooges come from when Larry sing-talks. I REALLY hope the Farrelly Brother incorporate that into the film.

@Lance Elution Gillstein

Considering you like Johnny " Wake me up when I do a good acting scene " Knoxville and AvaTURD, I wouldn't want to see the list of movies you plan to see this year.

Must be written in crayon.

I can use $ 16,000.00 dollar words because, unlike you, I didn't have to go back to high school to get my GED, which you did after impregnating your mother, you imbred, Cycloptic floating feces nut in a cesspool.

I know what those words mean without having to drag out the dictionary, which is sad to say what you had to do.


Andy Samberg has one-sixteenth talent as the rotted c*ck of Jack Benny. The only way he could ever be hilarious is if he was arrested, brought through a strip search, stuck in general population and got f*cked in the ass. Like the saying goes, " Andy, the only way you'll ever be funny is with 15 shivs in the back and c*m dripping out the ass. "


The Farrelly Brothers could only be hilarious if they got cameos in Uwe Boll's movie "Auschwitz" as voluntary Jews getting creamated, after they've been stripped of their clothes and beaten beyond recognition.

Then I would laugh.

Just like your father did after seeing you ooze like a Brazillan worm out of your mama's cooch, f*cknut.

"I have no clue what you mean by "haven't been on this site long". I've been coming to this site for a good 6 years now."

That's not possible. WP went on-line publically January 27th, 2006, so six years later would be January 27th, 2012, and unless I've somehow time-traveled, it's not that year yet, so a 'good six years' is a bit of a stretch, nevermind that you haven't contributed jack to the comments, so just browsing doesn't make you a shopper.

"Andy Samberg's going to be cast as Larry. I'm calling it now."

Well then, that will be another damned good reason to avoid this piece of sh*t film.

"Plot & story don't make a movie. It's the characters & telling of the story (cinematography, directing) that make a film worth watching. That's why Knoxville is perfect for this role. To type cast him as simply "a poo flinger" is absolutely ridiculous."

In general, a film succeeds when it has all of the above: plot, story and good direction, but even a film with bad direction and bad cinematography can work, but a film with a bad story and plot and good direction will always fail, period.

I find it alarming, though, that people really think story and plot don't matter.

That's a very scary thought, but considering how little people read nowadays, and the general illiteracy of most people, I'm not surprised. Horrifed, but not f*cking surprised.

"Andy & Larry have the same personality & look very simular."

They look nothing alike, man. I just spent a week catching all the shorts, and I can say without a the slightest doubt they look nothing alike. Big nose, lots of hair, maybe, but they possess very, very different faces and heights and builds and mannerisms.

And Larry was largely bald. Short as well. Seems you just want to throw some sh*tty wannabe Jewish actor into the mix and say "mission accomplished".

"Some of the funniest moments in the 3 Stooges come from when Larry sing-talks."

What? Curly and Shemp were the undisputed stars of the group, Larry barely had any lines until late in Shemp's career, and I have no idea what you mean by 'sing-talk' either, as Larry Fine hardly ever did more than shortly respond to Moe's violent aggressiveness. He only took a larger role in the group later after Curly died and Shemp was in decline.

I suggest you actually watch their body of work before you make ignorant comments such as that one.

"I REALLY hope the Farrelly Brother incorporate that into the film."

The film will FAIL. Max is totally right, and you're wrong, and before you start calling people retarded you might check out what's being said, lest you make a fool of yourself speaking of things about which you know little.

Fact is, Knoxville sucks and he isn't remotely funny.

He's a stupid stuntman who made the mistake that 'America's Funniest Videos' make for compelling and lasting comedy, and he's spent his later life making himself into something of a moronic joke for people with a simplistic and crude sense of humor.

I sh-udder to think how the one-trick pony Farrelly Brother further milk and whore out the only cow they know.

I don't think Lance has ever seen a movie before. You also forget that editing plays a huge part in it as well. American History X wouldn't be the way it is if Norton didn't get his hands dirty.

But you know if you're so wise, why don't we see you winning all the awards at the oscars?

It's sad that the only thing that people do on the comments here is talk sh*t. Instead of making assumption like Buckles, who somehow got that I don't give a sh*t about plot & story, people could elaborate upon others comments, leading to a much more intelligent conversation.

At 1st glance I thought Minkowski was heading in that direction, but I then realized that he too had little to offer. Picking at the littlest details in comments, stating opinions as facts & talking sh*t? Minkowski: this is what landed you in the dumb ass pile.

WorstPreviews covers such wide variety of films & most of them are really sh*tty. So sh*tty in fact that I only end up reading about a quarter of what's posted. I'll suggest others do the same. Comment only when you truly have something to contribute or else this will just end up like all the other sh*tty blog sites out there. No one wants to read 15 people saying "Johnny Knoxville Sucks."

Stop wasting our time.

Buckles. I understand editing is a big part of the story telling process. Just as I understand that every f*cking aspect of the production process contributes.
