Two stooges down, Moe to go: Actor Sean Hayes will take on the wild-haired Larry in Peter and Bobby Farrelly’s long-in-the-works feature film version of The Three Stooges. He joins Will Sasso ($#*! My Dad Says), who was cast late last month as Curly. While the Emmy-winning Hayes isn’t nearly the physical match for Larry that Sasso is for Curly, he is certainly familiar with old-school slapstick, from his time on Will & Grace to his performance as Jerry Lewis in the 2002 CBS TV movie Martin and Lewis. The Farrelly brothers are reportedly gunning for a mid-April start for the project, which would mean that a casting decision on the pivotal role of Moe may be close at hand.
