]]>
If you were of movie-going age twenty years ago, consider yourself lucky — 1994 was one of the greatest years in the history of modern cinema. It was the year that gave us stone-cold classics like Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption, cult-favorites like Natural Born Killers and Clerks, and Jim Carrey demolishing the box office three separate times. Also, Forrest Gump gobbled up six Oscars, while Speed only won two, proving once again how out-of-touch the Academy is.

For today’s installment of Throwback Thursday, we’re honoring some of the best flicks of ’94 through their classic movie posters. Check out our favorites in the gallery above, and let the waves of nostalgia wash over you.

If you thought that Dumb and Dumber was a good film, but would have stood to drop some of that goofy nonsense and play it straight, we’ve got a trailer for you, weirdo.

Someone (we’ll just call them “the Internet”) recut scenes from the famous Farrelly Brothers comedy to make it appear as though it’s closer to Terms of Endearment than Ace Ventura.

In case you hadn’t caught word, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are getting back in the saddle for a Dumb and Dumber sequel titled, predictably enough, Dumb and Dumber To. Since word of this hasn’t reached Anchorman 2 levels of hype yet, the production has tweeted out some pics that are pretty evocative of the first one. Take a look:

Jim Carrey has taken to Twitter to let the world know that he’s not feeling too great about the plethora of violence in the upcoming Kick-Ass 2, citing the Sandy Hook massacre as a new point of context in his decision.

Graphic novel author Mark Millar has offered that there is nothing in the final cut that wasn’t in the screenplay before filming started, according to The Huffington Post.

Regardless, it’s unclear if Carrey’s statement is more of a criticism, distancing, or just a demonstration of a newfound sensitivity to media violence, but perhaps Jim Carrey would be willing to admit that a few other violent programs and films are probably bigger culprits here than a satirical superhero movie stemming from a thinking man‘s comic book.

In 2010, a film came into our lives so blood-soaked and politically-incorrect that we were powerless not to love it. And now, we get a second helping.

Though they’ve tweaked their names a little bit in the past few years, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chloe Moretz are back in fighting shape to take on the criminal sleaze of New York City. However, Christopher Mintz-Plasse is back too and out for revenge by reinventing himself as the world’s first supervillian, The Motherfucker. Jim Carrey also joins the cast as another wannabe hero taking back the streets with the help of his well-trained dog. I’m a sucker for a dog in costume. God forbid any harm fall on that animal. We’ll find out June 28th.

I’ve been looking forward to this trailer for awhile. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone stars Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi as two Vegas magicians whose stars are fading in the light of Jim Carrey’s bad boy illusionist. There’s enough silliness going on here to keep me interested but many are saying the comedy looks a little too out there to be the hit Steve Carell needs. Granted, at first glance it does seem like Steve Carell is starring in a Nick Swardson movie but seeing Steve Buscemi in a silly wig is all the high-sign I need that this movie will be hilarious.

The post BSE Be Damned, Here Are Our Favorite Cows From TV And Movies appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Last week’s news cycle was literally hemorrhaging cows. Ok. Not literally, but there is a lot of talk about cows in the news because a cow on a California farm was found to have bovine spongeform encephalopathy, better known but its more colorful nickname, Mad Cow Disease.

This news serves as the perfect segue to discuss our favorite cows in film, and, consequently, my intense hatred of all cows. They’re terrible. They do next to nothing and they sleep standing up. You know who else sleeps standing up? NOTHING! Ok, most birds do, but that’s a pretty low bar to clear. Cows, those giant beasts, aren’t even better than dumb birds.

Ridiculous.

Here are some cows in movies.

The Cow in Me, Myself, and Irene


This cow gets the spirit award for getting shot in the head six times, hit by a car, and bludgeoned, but still holding on to that will to live. A lot of people would say, “Now, cows are animals, and the graphic depiction of their torture bothers me.” I agree with the second part. I believe that you are bothered by the pointless torture and molestation of cows.

But to call a cow an animal shortchanges most animals, doesn’t it? Animals do stuff. The good ones do anyway. Cows are nature’ss paperweight so the only roll they could possibly play in a film is either as the butt of some joke or as the recipient of relentless violence. Just like in real life.

As you will see as we travel down this list, depictions of hurting and humiliating cows are very, very funny.

Actually hurting cows: NOT FUNNY. Mean. They’ll get hurt in time when they get popped with a cattle bolt. (Fun fact: They use cattle bolts to “stun” the cows so that they can cut their throats while they’re still alive to aid in the exsanguination process!”)

The Cow in Fringe


The cow in Fringe is named Gene, and it serves as an archetypal cow by just sitting around and doing nothing but eating and occasionally passing gas. There is no explanation as to why the cow exists on this show, much like there is no explanation as to why cows exist in real life.

Gene the cow does have a penchant for Chinese food. My theory is that at least some of that Chinese food contained beef or beef bouillon or tallow, making Gene a cannibal, and, due to a lack of other options, the most interesting cow on this list.

The Pregnant Cow and Its Calf in City Slickers

(Note: We didn’t embed video here because the guy that ones this site said that if he caught me putting another picture of a cow vagina on Screen Junkies, he was going to seriously going to lose his shit. And, based on the look on his face when he told me that, I believed him.)

Here, Billy Crystal delivers a breached calf and you know how the mother thanks him? By taking his watch with its vagina. Real classy, cow. You know what I would have done? I would have taken the watch off, first. That’s what I would have done. Of course, Billy Crystal with all his Oscar and Forget Paris and Throw Momma From The Train money can spend all day just losing watches in cow vaginas.

But me? No sir. Not in this economy.

The Cow in Twister


Cows also serve a purpose during tornados. If you see a cow get lifted up by a tornado, you know that the tornado is pretty bad, possibly an F5 “finger of God” type situation. However, the cow’s utility is outweighed by the fact that, once airborne, the cow is a ballistic instrument that can levy damage all over the place, taking out toddlers, small dogs, and recently-washed sports cars.

We do a lot of joking on this site, but if you own a cow in a place with a high incidence of tornados, please chain it down.

The Cow In Monty Python’s The Holy Grail


Aside from being hamburgers, this is the most useful a cow has ever been. And I don’t mean that in the sense that I don’t realize that this scene is fiction. I mean it in the sense that a cow pretending to be flown through the air for a Monty Python skit is the most useful thing a cow has done, other than being beef.

For reals, yo. I went through four pages of Google search (both web and news) for the phrase “hero cow,” and got no relevant results. “Hero bird,” on the other hand, had a relevant hit on the second entry. Cows, please be more like birds.

The Cow in Tommy Boy


That fucker gets knocked over. Take a look. If you are going to go cow tipping. Please act responsibly and pick the cow back up when you’re done. It may not be easy, but the cow will appreciate it. And you would see that appreciation if cows didn’t have such dead eyes and non-expressive faces.

I wish they were more like dogs.

Jim Carrey‘s daughter was on American Idol last night, having auditioned for season 11. Without commenting on her talent (yet), it would seem that she’s charming, sweet, and sincere. A sort of anti-Jim Carrey, if you will.

Jane Carrey is 24 years old and her career is listed as “waitress,” which probably doesn’t mean much, other than “Jim Carrey’s daughter” isn’t the type of thing you put you your tax returns. It’s also a little surprising to learn that Jane has a kid, named Jackson Riley Santana, making Jim Carrey a grandfather.

Ok. That’s fun trivia. But can Jane sing?

Yeah. She doesn’t bellow like Xtina or Mariah or anything, but she seems to have some chops in this video‘s brief rendition of the ubiquitous “Something to Talk About.” I wouldn’t bet on her to win, or even make it more than a few rounds, but she’s a sweet, cute girl that doesn’t make me want to chuck my remote at the TV.

And she’s also Jim Carrey’s daughter. Really can’t stress that enough.

For years, lawyers have have been getting a bad wrap in the entertainment industry. Despite the fact that they are often shown as heroes of legal dramas, the bulk are displayed as world-weary, unscrupulous jerks who will sell out their moms for a dime.

Is that portrayal accurate? Probably not, but I’ll let a lawyer or someone who is affected by the stereotype disprove it. It’s more fun to take the most egregious examples of the sleazy lawyer stereotype and wonder if the guys who do our day to day legal work are really as depraved as some of the entrants on this list.

Mickey Rourke – The Rainmaker

There’s a decent chance when Mickey Rourke is cast in a role, he’s going to play someone sleazy. After all, the guy seems really sleazy. Although he doesn’t get much time to feast on this role in the nadir of his career, he was able to get his punches in when he could, utilizing brash suits, a shark tank, and just a general Mickey Rourke-ness. This isn’t a guy who chose his profession because he loves the law. The fact that his firm is taking on a giant insurance company is more a testament to his protégé’s (Matt Damon) integrity than anything he had to do with the case.

Sean Penn – Carlito’s Way

Davey Kleinfeld is the alpha and omega of sleazy lawyers. He runs the gamut on sleazy behavior, from stealing from the mob to wearing a wire on his best friend, to doing lots and lots and lots of cocaine to banging other guys’ girlfriends in loud Miami clubs.

He’s a weasel in every sense, though it’s largely forgivable due to his allegiance to Carlito. However, when that disappears, the audience can’t see misfortune fall on Penn’s character fast enough. And they get what they hope for.

Never trust a man that has both an afro and an ascot. They mean diametrically opposing things.

The Farrelly Brothers announced their intention to wipe Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd from the public conscience (even more so) with a sequel to their 1994 original, Dumb and Dumber. Now that The Three Stooges is in the can, the Farrellys are free to reunite Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in the roles of Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne.

Typically, Jim Carrey doesn’t do sequels, but he did hint at this project while promoting Mr. Popper’s Penguins. And Jeff Daniels will do anything. So, now it’s just a matter of schedules syncing up and the guys who wrote Sex Drive being able to come up with some fresh fart jokes. Developing. (Deadline)

Jim Carrey and Emma Stone‘s social circles are drawing closer together. Carrey is in talks to join Steve Carell in the magician comedy, Burt Wonderstone. The Don Scardino-directed film follows Carell, who plays a Las Vegas magician who splits with his longtime partner and is subsequently upstaged by a hip, young David Blaine-type of magician.

There’s no word yet on which role Carrey would play, but don’t be surprised to see him pulling scarf after scarf out of his butt. (Deadline)

It’s safe to assume Jim Carrey is a fan of Emma Stone. The actor posted this bizarre video on his official site where he professes his love to The Help star. 49-year old Carrey goes on to describe the fun times that he and the 22-year old would have together, and then takes a pause to imagine the sex he would do to her if only he weren’t so old and creepy. Though it walks the line,  it does seem like it could be a put-on. Is he heartfelt or is Ace Ventura talking out of his butt once again? At any rate, totally skeevy.

It totally delivers on having Jim Carrey and penguins in it.

The post Review: Mr. Popper’s Penguins appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Mr. Popper’s Penguins is a Jim Carrey penguin movie. It totally delivers on having Jim Carrey and penguins in it. Really not much to say here. The movie does everything it promises to, it’s cute, it’s light and that’s fine.

Tom Popper (Carrey) grew up with an absentee dad who used to communicate with him on CB radio from his Antarctic expeditions. (Kids, CB was like old timey cell phones.) As a grown up, Popper’s a corporate wheeler-dealer who’s out of touch with his own kids. His father leaves Popper some penguins in his will, and the penguins turn his New York apartment and life upside down.

New ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’ Trailer Is Penguin-Filled To The Max

You know where this goes. At first Popper doesn’t like the penguins. He’s annoyed with them. Then they start to grow on him and he learns valuable lessons that help him reconnect with his family too. That’s the deal and it feels organic. At least they’re not forcing a B.S. agenda. It actually is good for people to learn to listen to each other.

The corporate subplot is Popper’s firm wants him to buy Tavern on the Green so they can tear it down. So they’re evil and he’s going to have to rebel against them. Popper has to sell Mrs. Van Gandy (Angela Lansbury) on the deal, so of course his penguin antics seem unprofessional.

ERROR: Article not found. Please check "postid".

Carrey still makes the best faces in the business and he elevates the animal antics with his physical skill. It’s not laugh out loud funny, but basic penguin humor. They poop, they waddle, they sleep in his bed. Carrey is really playing to kids, so it’s almost a little toned down, or maybe he just didn’t want to upstage the penguins.

There are some silly stretches of credibility. A house sitter does fine with the penguins until she freaks out and bolts, leaving the door wide open. That’s just not something a normal person does. Popper’s catch phrase “Yeahbsolutely” is no “all righty then.” Clark Gregg plays a hardcor zookeeper who wants to take the penguins away but the film never makes him a moustache twirler, or even a real threat.

So probably not a Screen Junkies type movie but maybe some of you have kids. As summer kids movies go it’s solid entertainment.

5 photosPeep Out ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’ Pics

In a recent interview, Carrey let slip that he was considering two sequels to past films that they already made spin-off movies out of, but neither one involved Carrey. I guess he wants to go back and rewrite those great wrongs in cinema history.

“We’re talking about maybe returning to some old characters that everyone has been asking about,” on which Carrey elaborated, ”…There’s Bruce Almighty and we’re talking about maybe another Dumb and Dumber.”

What? He’s not doing another Majestic? Aw, man. Well, it’d be fun to catch up with Harold and Lloyd, and I’m guessing The Farrelly Brothers have been praying night and day for the dumberer stars of that potential hit to align. As for Bruce Almighty, the Steve Carell sequel Evan Almighty was a big budget disappointment. Are people really excited to return to the franchise? I’d just assume pack my memories of those movies on an arc and let them drift peacefully off into the ocean. (ComingSoon.net)

“If you’re going to jump a shark, jump a big one,” Ricky Gervais wrote on his blog, regarding “The Office” season finale. So… maybe a Sharktopus? I bet Dwight would do it, or at least, he would say that he would do it.

Last night was the much-hyped “Office” season closer, which featured cameos by Jim Carrey, Will Arnett, Gervais himself (via webcam) and oddly enough, Warren Buffett. I guess when Steve Carell leaves your show, you need to plug that celebrity sized hole in your sitcom boat. Catherine Tate (“Dr. Who“) is the current favorite among the producers as a replacement.

Gervais had many critical things to say about the American version of his hit show, because if there’s one thing Gervais shies away from, it’s controversies stemmed from freely speaking his opinions:

“I assume most people know I didn’t do the US remake for the art. I did my version for the art. That’s why I stopped it after a few hours of telly,” Gervais wrote. “Don’t get me wrong. I’m very proud of the US version. It was not only a very very good network comedy but it was also a massive success story. But you know, I did it for different reasons, ambitions and with slightly different emotional attachments to the project.”

Gervais referring to the show in the past tense is interesting. “It was not only…” Well, once you jump a shark, you can’t un-jump it. Third Law of Shark Jumping Physics. (Hollywood Reporter)

I’ve just played “The New Mr. Popper’s Penguins Movie Trailer Drinking Game.” It’s simple. Just watch the trailer above and take a drink anytime someone says the word “penguin.” Also, I gotta tell you… that you are my… best friend in the whole frickin’ world.. I love you, man… serio– for serious. *Hiccup*

Mr. Popper’s Penguins stars Jim Carrey as a man who receives a lot of penguins, which poses many humorous problems for him, as you can no doubt imagine. Ultimately, those penguins seem to help him connect better with his family, which is a big relief for me personally. The Fox film also stars Angela Lansbury, Carla Gugino, Dominic Chianese and Madeline Carroll.

Jim Carrey will dance to “Ice Ice Baby” with a group of penguins in theaters nationwide June 17, 2011.

There’s a reason to keep watching “The Office,” even though Steve Carrell is gone, and that reason is… somewhat interesting celebrities. So, now all the producers have to do is load every episode next season with 6-7 celebrities and they’ll be good to go.

Billionaire tycoon Warren Buffett joins the never-ending famous person parade that is”The Office” season finale. Other celebrities making a cameo-or-greater on the episode include Jim Carrey, Ray Romano, Catherine Tate, Will Arnett, James Spader and Ricky Gervais. They’re all interviewing for the coveted position of Scranton branch manager for the paper company Dunder Mifflin. This just goes to show you, if you work hard enough, and become famous enough, you too can interview to become the head of the small Pennsylvania off-shoot of a poorly managed paper company.

The almost-an-hour-long “Office” season finale airs May 20th. (Variety)

The Office” is supposed to be a comedy about the things people actually do at work. Jim Carrey‘s next movie is about a man who plays host to a bunch of penguins in a New York City apartment. The comedic sensibilities are a perfect match.

Carrey will guest star on an upcoming episode of”The Office.” In the episode, Carrey interviews for the position Steve Carrell‘s Michael Scott leaves. Is a resume with experience like “Pet Detective,” “Mask-Based Superhero” and “Christmas Present Relocation Manager” gonna land him the job as manager of a paper company? Probably not. Carrey will also have stiff competition in the episode from Ricky Gervais, Ray Romano, Catherine Tate, Will Arnett and James Spader. Sounds like this episode could use a few more celebrities. Is James Franco available?

Meanwhile, that begs the question: what’s gonna happen to Will Ferrell‘s character Deangelo Vickers (great name), who’s currently in charge? It’s a bigger office mystery than who takes more than 3 slices of pizza on Pizza Fridays, though many suspect it’s Jason. (EW)

Each of the penguins in this first poster for Jim Carrey‘s Mr. Poppers Penguins (below) is trying to tell Carrey something different. The penguin biting his ear wants to email him a screenplay. The penguin shouting at him in the top left recently Netflixed Yes Man and wasn’t thrilled. The penguin on the top right is waiting for the right opportunity to poke Carrey’s eye out. Meanwhile, Carrey seems half-heartedly apologetic, as if to say, “I might be about to ruin yet another classic children’s book. My bad.”

Directed by Mark Waters and based on the book by Richard & Florence Atwater, Carrey plays a man who gets a bunch of penguins. He also works in real estate. Problems occur because he gets all these penguins. What problems? Find out June 17, 2011, when the movie will be shown in many movie theaters. You know who else you’ll see? Carla Gugino and ”Murder, She Wrote” star Angela Lansbury. I believe there will also be several penguins in the film. (IMP)

Some projects get stuck in Development Hell, and others get stuck in Development Super Hell. Super Hell is worse than regular Hell, just so we’re on the same page.

One of those unlucky Super Hell projects is the remake of 1947′s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty starring Danny Kaye. Over the years, Fox’s proposed reboot has collected more comedian interest than a hot asian girl at a stand-up club wearing a tight Ghostbusters t-shirt. Jim Carrey, Owen Wilson, Mike MyersWill Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen have all circled around the title role at one point. Now add Ben Stiller to the list.

After writer Steve Conrad penned a completely new version of the remake script, Stiller expressed interest. With Stiller on-board, Fox will scramble for a “cinematic director,” hoping to get the cameras rolling this Fall. Walter Mitty is based on a famous James Thurber short story about a mild-mannered daydreamer who imagines himself in heroic situations. I suspect this new version will contain more fart jokes in those daydreams than in any previous adaptation. (Deadline)

The teaser trailer for Mr. Popper’s Penguins has the following things: Jim Carrey showing his age, Jim Carrey teaching penguins how to hip hop dance to “Ice Ice Baby,” Junior Soprano saying, “Your house is full of penguins!” and almost nothing else.

I am not familiar with the source material, the 1938 children’s book Mr. Popper’s Penguins, but if it happens to be one sheet of paper that says simply, “Mr. Popper lives in a house with penguins for some reason,” then this movie appears 100% faithful to the source material.

Uhhhh…he seems to live in a nice house?

He’s in a tuxedo. That’s a pleasant little play on penguin imagery….

That’s seriously all that can be said about this trailer.

You’ve probably been clamoring for a sequel to Dumb and Dumber ever since you laughed uproariously at Bob Saget’s antics in the prequel, Dumb and Dumberer. Well now, presumably thanks to the disappointing performance of Hall Pass, the Farrell brothers are apparently working on a sequel. One of the brothers Farrelly, Bobby, recently had this to say about a possible sequel:

“[Dumb and Dumber] has run a bunch of times on TV in the states, and kids will come up and they’ll be able to quote lines from that – lines that I’ve long forgotten. If we could get those two guys back together, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels that might be a worthwhile sequel – and that ball is in motion. We’re starting to think about what those two dimwits would be doing twenty-years later in life, and hopefully we’ll be able to come up with something worthy of a sequel.”

So a Dumb and Dumber sequel is contingent upon the original stars agreeing to do it. That already puts it ahead of the prequel, which not only didn’t have Carrey or Daniels, but also didn’t involve the Farrelly brothers at all. Let’s go ahead and put this in the “might not be awful if it actually happens” file for now. (via The Playlist)

Fox is switching up Apes and Penguins. No, that’s not a line from Madagascar 4: Mo’ Monkeys, Mo’ Problems. It’s Twentieth Century Fox switching around their 2011 schedule of movie releases.

The studio’s Planet of the Apes origin story, Rise of the Apes, is moving from June 24th to November 23rd. That makes sense, because Thanksgiving reminds us about how we took over this land from the Native Americans, so it makes karmic sense that we’d see a movie about apes taking over the world from us. Shame us with a big screen analogy, Fox!

Meanwhile, Fox must have a lot of faith in the Jim Carrey comedy Mr. Popper’s Penguins. They’re moving it from August 12th (the Baltic Avenue of summer movie spots) to June 17th (pure Boardwalk, baby). Let’s hope Carry’s penguins don’t… slip up!

Do you get that joke? It’s a joke about penguins being slippery.

Other notable mentions from Fox’s new calendar:

- The Sitter, a new “R”-rated Jonah Hill comedy, gets bumped from July 15th to August 5th. (Ouch.)

- What’s Your Number?, a new “R”-rated Anna Faris comedy, got moved from April 29th to September 30th. (Meee-ouch!)

- The Big Year, starring Jack Black, Steve Martin and Owen Wilson as bird-watchers, officially has my attention starting Oct. 15th. (Deadline)

In the spiritual sequel to Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Carrey stars as a real estate developer whose life is turned upside down when he inherits six penguins. And we all know how much of a pain in the ass penguins can be. You have to crank up the air-conditioning and pull up your rugs and stock up on fish and convince your neighbors you’re not storing dead bodies in there. Not to mention all the penguin shit. Penguins are just a real pain in the ass.

When you’re adapting a famous museum of freaks into a movie, who better to star than a man once famous for talking out of his butt?

A movie version of the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not franchise has been in the works for awhile now. Both Tim Burton and Chris Columbus have been attached at different points. Now it looks like Ripley’s will be written by Forrest Gump scribe Eric Roth and star Jim Carrey as globe-trotting newspaper columnist Robert Ripley. Personally, I would have cast Carrey as the guy who can stick a billiards ball, a tennis ball and a golf ball in his mouth and still whistle, but if they wanted my input, damn it, they should have asked me sooner.

Here’s a synopsis from Deadline:

The film is about Ripley’s search around the world for the most unusual people and places that he immortalized in his newspaper column. The locales were exotic and the sights were unbelievable, but the film is about Ripley’s journey to appreciate that the unusual people were more than just conquests to be cataloged.

So he learns that freaks aren’t just attractions who help sell tickets to museums. They’re also people. Real people. Real freaky people who will get tourists to buy tickets to a schlocky museum. That’s gonna be a very sweet ending, I can tell. (Deadline)

Jim Carrey was spotted on the set of Mr. Popper’s Penguins in New York City’s Central Park canoodling with none other than two penguins. He seems to be thoroughly unimpressed with their presence. Maybe it’s because Morgan Freeman isn’t narrating their every move. I was hoping they’d be real penguins, but there’s something too stoic about them. They’re either so stunned that they’re working with comedy legend Jim Carrey, or they’re robots. I just suddenly got the urge to rewatch Batman Returns. (Cinema Blend)

Are the Farrelly brothers about to escape development hell? Maybe. Twentieth Century Fox is taking over the brothers’ long-awaited modern day The Three Stooges adaptation, pulling the project from the clammy grip of the now-officially-bankrupt MGM.

The change in studio oversight is accompanied by a tentative start date for the comedy: Twentieth Century wants to begin shooting on March 14, 2011. An ambitious milestone, but whether it’ll actually happen hinges on how soon Bobby and Peter Farrelly can secure a cast. So far, things are looking shaky. At one point, Sean Penn, Jim Carrey, and Benicio Del Toro were on board to play the trio of lovable idiots. That lineup was all but lost, however, when Penn and Carrey both dropped out, leaving questions about whether Del Toro would stay on. At the moment, there are no official cast confirmations, but the Farrellys remain optimistic.

“The script is ready to go, and we are opening up these roles to the world right now,” Peter Farrelly said. “We’ll make it with the best possible people. Our feeling is that no star is too big to audition and no matter who it is, we’re going to have to see him in the role. This is not ‘The Flintstones.’ You’ve got to be Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Curly Howard, and that could be a major movie star or at unknown.”

The script, which was written by the Farrellys and actor Mike Cerrone, will place the Stooges in the present day, starting from their shared childhood at an orphanage and following them through adulthood. I’m already doubting the realism of this film considering that these days any child who displays the sort of erratic behavior that characterizes the Stooges is immediately prescribed massive amounts of Ritalin and/or enrolled in special ed. Looks like I just gave you your hook, boys. Sean Penn might return to the project if he can play a retard. (Deadline)

The Three Stooges movie may be dead. At least, according to serious actor, Jim Carrey (Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, Batman Forever). He shot down any hope of seeing him portray Curly in The Farrell Brothers stab at the classic masochists. His main reason? Jim Carrey does not fat suit. He bent over and told MTV via his butt:

“For me, I don’t really want to do anything halfway, and I don’t feel like a fat suit does it. I started experimenting with it a little bit, and I gained 35, 40 pounds. I wanted to gain another 30, 40. When you’re [Robert] De Niro in your 20s or early 30s, you can kind of come back from that. It’s a tough thing to come back from when you’re upwards of 30. Your body can’t carry it or you can have a cardiac arrest.”

The fat suit doesn’t do it? Did he see Shallow Hal? Jack Black‘s fat suit looked so realistic in that. Gwyneth’s was okay, but Black’s was like a shroud of chub. You could nestle up and nap in that thing.
