Jennifer Hudson Joins The Three Stooges
06.02.11 by Ryan
Unlike some Oscar-winners, actress and singer Jennifer Hudson has been very selective about which roles to take after her Academy Award–winning role in Dreamgirls, with only a handful of movies to her credit since. Looks like Hudson is choosing to have some fun with her latest role.
Deadline reports that Hudson has been cast in writer-directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly's upcoming remake of The Three Stooges as Sister Rosemary. Hudson will join the previously cast Larry David (HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm), who plays Mother Mengele, and Jane Lynch (FOX's Glee), who plays Mother Superior.
As for the Stooges themselves, Will Sasso (Mad TV, Life As We Know It) is playing Curly, Sean Hayes (Will and Grace) is playing Larry, and Chris Diamantopoulos (who played Frank Sinatra in ReelzChannel's The Kennedys) is playing Moe.
For those interested in how the actors will look as the Stooges, a series of set photos were revealed last month.
The Three Stooges will be comprised of three 27-minute segments, which at least partly see the Stooges at an orphanage. The movie is currently in production.
