Sean Hayes
Sean Hayes is gearing up to play The Three Stooges' Larry Fine after Sean Penn backed out of the Farrelly Brothers' latest project.

The former Will & Grace star joins Canadian funnyman Will Sasso, who will play Curly Howard in the upcoming comedy. Peter and Bobby Farrelly are still looking to fill the role of Moe Howard.

The quirky moviemaking duo had originally cast Penn to play Larry, Jim Carrey as Curly and Benicio del Toro as Moe.

The film will not be a biopic; instead, it will be divided into 30-minute long vignettes, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The Farrelly Brothers Step Up Hunt For 'Three Stooges'

The Farrelly Brothers are stepping up their hunt for actors to play The Three Stooges in their new movie after failing to find replacements for Jim Carrey and Sean Penn.

Carrey and Penn both bowed out of the project, and the filmmaking duo is running out of time to find new stars to play 1930s comedy icons Moe Howard, Curly Howard and Larry Fine before filming begins in March.

It is unclear if Benicio del Toro, who was attached to play Moe, remains in the cast. Peter Farrelly admits they are now "opening the roles up to the world" as they attempt to find the perfect actors for the parts...

'Glee' Recap: 'Acafellas'

Glee
Despite being called "Acafella" and focusing on Will's attempts to form his own adult group, this week's episode was still all about the kids…particularly Miss Mercedes. The girl moved just as fiercely as any of her scantily clad cheerleader back-up dancers during "Bust Your Windows." Kurt may have broken her heart initially (by lying about loving Rachel), but when he finally confessed his homosexuality, Mercedes pulled through with a heartfelt and supportive (if not slightly sappy) speech about friendship and acceptance. With Mercedes left boyfriendless I really hoped this would be the epi...

The Farrelly Brothers Can Make 'The Three Stooges' Movie Work

The Three Stooges
When it comes to being funny, the Farrelly Brothers aren't joking. They've cast two Oscar winners, Sean Penn and Benicio Del Toro, (neither known for their comedic chops, at least not lately) as the immortal stooges Moe Howard and Larry Fine. They've also cast Jim Carrey as the corpulent Curley Howard. He's being expected to put on a good forty pounds for the role, a feat that's more reminiscent of Robert De Niro's transformation for the film, 'Raging Bull', than any comedy. (Fat suits and Jack Black don't count.) So why are the Farrelly brothers putting so much emphasis on the dramatic sid...
