So that Farrelly Brothers Three Stooges movie — the one that once upon a time had the brilliantly cast ensemble of Jim Carrey, Sean Penn and Benicio del Toro but sadly fell apart and morphed into the current and not nearly as good pairing of Sean Hayes, Will Sasso and somebody else — is still happening. And now, it may have one of its female leads: Modern Family starlet Sofia Vergara.
The film will be divided into three, 27-minute vignettes of PG-rated, physical comedy. According to Variety, Vergara would star in the second vignette as “a femme fatale who tries to trick the Stooges into killing a man for money, which the slapstick trio needs in order to save their orphanage from being closed.”
Despite this picture continuing to be re-cast and pretty much being one big clusterfuck, Vergara’s hiring is a fine choice to balance the chaos. The Three Stooges need one thing for success: great physical humor. Anybody familiar with Modern Family knows that Vergara gives her scenes big, dominate performances, which will fit right into the Stooges’ world. Plus, if her role is just to “trick” the Stooges into doing something, she won’t really need to try too hard — I mean, just watching her walk from the kitchen to the living room is distracting.
