If you believed the credible The Three Stooges, then the real “stooges” are you and I, my  friend. The real stooges… are you and I.

Knoxville was considering the role, but wisely backed away before serious negotiations took place. Unlike the Farrelly’s, Knoxville has made several hit movies in the past decade, though both their filmographies include movies about bad things happening to dudes’ balls. I’m guessing Hall Pass was Knoxville’s pass out of Stoogeland. So that leaves the gross out brothers with three roles to fill, rather than two.

Knoxville is eyeing other projects, including a merging of the Jackass and Broken Lizard crews in a film amazingly titled Mustache Riders. He’s also producing, and possibly starring in, a movie about a man whose wife runs for president. It has the less amazing title of First Man and will be written/directed by Max Winkler.

Paramount Pictures May Have a Man-Crush On Johnny Knoxville http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/paramount-pictures-may-have-a-man-crush-on-johnny-knoxville/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/paramount-pictures-may-have-a-man-crush-on-johnny-knoxville/#comments Fri, 04 Mar 2011 00:45:34 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=31705 Johnny Knoxville is going to play a hard-partying man whose wife is elected president. Like Bill Clinton is going to be one day.

Paramount has ponied up some cash for the project First Man, written by Max Winkler and Matt Spicer with Johnny Knoxville attached to star. The film focuses on a man whose wife gets elected president. After behaving himself durign the campaign, the man (Knoxville) cuts loose and returns to his natural Knoxville-like demeanor. I think Knoxville might be the right man for this part.

Paramount is also tweaking their dormant 2008 acquisition Mustache Riders, which I can only assume is a political thriller. It’s not, actually. It’s about three criminals who search for treasure with a grizzled prospector. It’s like Without a Paddle meets Jackass. Yay? The script is being changed so that Jackass co-stars Knoxville, Ryan Dunn, and Bam Margera can do their own stunts. Don’t look for this one come awards season. (Deadline)
