We’d heard Larry David was in the running for a role in The Three Stooges, but we were under the impression that he was duking it out with Justin Timberlake for the role of Larry, but it turns out he’s snagged quite a different one. He’ll be playing Mother Mengele alongside Jane Lynch as Mother Superior in the orphanage where the stooges grow up.
This Farrelly Brothers flick is shaping up to be sort of disjointed; they already cast Will Sasso as Curly, Sean Hayes as Moe and Chris Diamantopolous as Moe. Then again, adding David as a nun may just be the touch of further weirdness that this project needs. It’s kind of perfect: an old curmudgeon in a nun’s habit. I just hope the folks on set know what they’re in for.
