vital Three Stooges movie news!!!

Three Stooges cast update.

Hank Azaria as Moe is weird, James Marsden as Larry even moreso (a hot Larry??? Azaria's kinda hot, too, this is disturbing), but they're both kind of genius in an off-kilter way. At least they're not going for the obvious, like Seth Green as Larry.

It'd be hilarious if they actually gave Marsden an authentic Larry hair-do.

This movie just seems to define "ill-conceived", I guess we'll see but I can't imagine this being received any better than luke-warm.

At least they're not putting Shemp in the movie, but I'm in the 'this is a bad idea' camp. The Stooges were great, please don't do this.

Will Sasso is a pretty good fit for Curly but I think it's a good idea to get the best actors for their film rather than try to fit the body mold of the Stooges. In real life, I don't think they were any taller than 5'6.

They're not the right anything for the Stooges.

The Stooges were comic genius without trying to be, though let's not forget that without Ted Healey, we wouldn't have the Stooges and most of their schtick to begin with.

I'll say it again, this movie must die....now.

Is there a petition to stop this nonsense?

So this is a Stooges movie with new actors and not a biopic?

No, and why should there be - other than that such petitions are so stupid as to be laughable, and therefore kind of an appropriate response to a Three Stooges topic?

This could be fun.

I get a bad feeling about it when Dumb and Dumber is quoted as the tone they're going for. Dumb and Dumber was an OK movie, but it should no means be used as a benchmark for a Three Stooges movie.

Because there's too many remakes (ie: crap-o-la) being churned out by the Hollywood BS collective already.

I think this one should be left alone. Of course they should have left a lot of other stuff alone, but this is just one I feel very strongly about, so I'm gonna rant about it every chance I get.

These weren't just characters, they were extensions of the men themselves with years of vaudeville experience. Nobody can ever capture that, and I don't think they should try.

Also, a fitting clip I've had on youtube to address the comments on the lack of imagination in Hollywood today:

Re: vital Three Stooges movie news!!!

Is there any demand at all for this movie? Most people who are fans don't want the movie, and people who aren't fans aren't going to waste their time to see it unless they make it like Jackass.

Yes. There already is a pretty decent tv biopic, with among others, Michael Chiklis from The Shield.

This movie sounds about as dumb as a Laurel and Hardy movie without Stan and Ollie or a Marx Brothers movie without Groucho and co. Why not just do a slapstick movie in the vein of the Stooges?

^ Or three mental patients who think they're the Stooges.

Sort of Cuckoo's Nest meets Bubba-Ho-Tep, but without any undead.

Something I never thought I'd see: the words "vital" and "Three Stooges" in the same phrase.
