Wow, for the Farrelly Brothers, talk about a fall from (will and) grace.
The part of Curly in their Three Stooges reboot, once rumored to be played by somewhat bankable movie star Jim Carrey, went instead to “MadTV” star Will Sasso. However, at least the casting makes sense, because Sasso is a proven physical comedian who looks the part. Now, the role of Larry, once rumored to be played by Oscar winning actor Sean Penn, will instead go to a very different Sean: Sean Hayes (“Will and Grace”), aka “Just Jack!,” aka ”I had to look up what Jack McFarland’s catch phrase was, because it’s been so long since I’ve even thought about ‘Will and Grace’.”
Maybe the Farrelly’s have been poked in the eyes / clobbered over the head too many times? Or maybe these are the only folks who will sign on to a project with directors who haven’t produced a hit in over a decade.
