it makes perfect sense

For years Hollywood has tried to make a "Three Stooges" movie, but could never to find three actors good enough at physical comedy to recreate such recognizable characters.  So now they’re just gonna just stop trying and make the movie anyway.  Variety says…

MGM and the Farrelly brothers are closing in on their cast for "The Three Stooges."Sean Penn will play Larry, and negotiations are underway with Jim Carrey to play Curly, with the actor already making plans to gain 40 pounds to approximate the physical dimensions of Jerome "Curly" Howard.The studio is zeroing in on Benicio Del Toro to play Moe.The film is not a biopic, but rather a comedy built around the antics of the three characters.

I just hope they have some kind of disclaimer so I can tell between the new version and the old one.  If they don’t, I’ll just have to remember that in the old version, it was Larry who was Puerto Rican and mumbled incoherently, and Moe was the middle-aged one who was super angry and took human growth hormones.  In the movie version, it’s the opposite.
