When you look at Sofia Vergara, do you ever think of two bald guys with their heads pressed up against each other?

Of course you do. She’s in consideration for a role in the new Three Stooges movie, and head-bonking Larry and Curly have already been cast. Duh. (What did you think we meant?)

The Modern Family actress doesn’t have a solid deal, according to sources close to the production, but she has attracted the interest of director-writers Peter and Bobby Farrelly. The brothers didn’t have any comment, but the role she’s in consideration for is a vixen who lures the knuckleheaded brothers into a potential murder-for-hire scheme. If anyone dies from severe slapping and eye-gouging, Moe, Larry and Curly have a lot of explaining to do.

Will & Grace’s Sean Hayes has just been cast as Larry, with $#*! My Dad Says actor Will Sasso in the Curly role. Moe hasn’t yet been cast, but expect that news soon as the Farrelly’s aim to start shooting this month.
