A new Three Stooges movie

Updated on July 29, 2010

The Three Stooges

The Original Three Stooges

The new Three Stooges movie

There is a news report circulating that the cast for the new Three Stooges movie will include Jim Carrey as Curly, Sean Penn as Larry and Benicio del Toro as Moe.

My initial thought on hearing about a new Three Stooges movie was that it was just plain wrong. The Stooges were and still are great! You can not replace Moe, Larry and Curly. Shemp and Curly Joe did a decent job of replacing Curly but it still wasn't the same as Moe, Larry and Curly. I don't even want to discuss Joe.

After giving some thought to a new Stooge movie, I have come to the conclusion that it could be okay IF it is handled properly. That is the new Stooges need to develop their own mannerisms, not trying to copy the originals. An excellent example of how this was done was when Shemp replaced Curly. Shemp did not try to do Curly's nyuk nyuk nyuk or woop woop woop. He replaced it with his own eeebbb eeebbb eeebbb.

The new movie should even change the Stooges names, but keep them similar. The Moe character should keep the Moe characteristics, the Larry character the Larry characteristics and the Curly character the Curly characteristics.

Looking at the new cast, Sean Penn certainly has the Larry nose and is a talented actor. I think he could do a good job doing a Larry type character. Jim Carrey concerns me. On his own he may be able to pull off a Curly type character, however, I am hearing that he is trying to gain 40 pounds. I am concerned that he will try to too closely emulate Curly. I don't know enough about Benicio del Toro to make a comment on his role.

The bottom line is that I will give this new Three Stooges movie a chance, but there is no way they will ever come close to replacing the originals.

      As far as I can tell, there may never be a "new" Three Stooges movie starring Jim Carrey or, for that matter, George W. Bush! As far as the Stooges go, please check out my hub about those three cut-ups. Later!

      Ain't that the truth.I am a big fan of Jim Carrey,but I could never see him playing as Curly.Besides,I highly doubt the actors can duplicate the Stooges's comedic style, IT CAN'T BE DONE!When is this supposed to come out again?

      Who picked these three jerks to play the Three Stooges?

      Penn, Carrey, or Del Toro are horrible picks to play the kings of slap stick comedy. This would be an insult to the Three Stooges.

      Weird Al - Larry Fine

      Jim Carrey - Curly Howard

      Steve Martin - Shemp Howard

      I would personally be thrilled to see this materialize.

      Imo the original guys set the mark on slapstick, and the three guys discussed to act are fully capable to knock it out of the park

      Thanks for the comment Raul. The original Stooges were Shemp and Moe. Then Larry joined. Shortly after that Shemp left and was replaced by Curly.

      When everyone thinks about the original Stooges they think of Moe, Larry and Curly who were the ones that made the first movies.

      No One could ever do the three stooges justice! Jim Carrey as Curly?? If anyone, he should play Moe. Look at Dumb and Dumber. Same haircut and I think Carrey would be good. But not as Curly. I don't have an idea who should play Larry. (He's my favorite stooge) How about "Kramer" / M.Richards?

      My Pick for Curly is Artie Lange /a.k.a. Howard Stern. HE WOULD BE PERFECT!!!

      Thanks for the comment andscifi!

      That's a good point, these are very famous actors.

      I agree, but sadly the only reason to make it a "Three Stooges" movie is to copy the mannerisms of the three stooges, otherwise these actors are more than famous enough to draw crowds without it.
