Opening in theaters on April 13th is a new slapstick comedy directed by the Farrelly Brothers (Kingpin, Dumb and Dumber, There's Something About Mary) called The Three Stooges, which is based on the legendary comedic film trio. The movie stars Chris Diamantopoulos (TV's The Kennedys), Sean Hayes (TV's Will & Grace), and Will Sasso (TV's MADtv) as Moe, Larry, and Curly, respectively, as well as a cast that includes Jane Lynch (TV's Glee), Larry David (TV's Curb Your Enthusiasm), Sofia Vergara (TV's Modern Family), Craig Bierko (Cinderella Man), Isaiah Mustafa (Madea's Big Happy Family), Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton, the cast of Jersey Shore, and Academy Award-winner Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls).
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with director Peter Farrelly, one half of the Farrelly Brothers, to discuss The Three Stooges. The accomplished director talked about the new movie, the importance of casting the right actors to play the iconic lead characters, Three Stooges boot camp, why he deserves an award for directing the cast of Jersey Shore, Jennifer Hudson's contractual obligation to sing in the film, Larry David's performance as a nun, and why Shemp Howard (Moe and Curley's brother, and the unofficial forth Stooge) does not appear in the movie but might be used in a sequel.
