Will Sasso looks to be joining the Farrelly Brothers comedy The Three Stooges, Deadline is reporting.
Sasso will star as Curly in the tribute to the original comedy legends, performing alongside the yet-to-be-cast characters of Larry and Moe. The plot, inspired by original “Three Stooges” shorts, will have the trio left as newborns outside an orphanage and will follow them into adulthood, the full film being divided into three half-hour shorts.
Further casting for the film is expected to be announced shortly, though the brothers (who recently directed Hall Pass) announced that they have a role in mind for Cher (who previously appeared in their Stuck on You.)
Sasso, best known for appearing on “Mad TV” and, more recently, “$#*I My Dad Says,” also had a role in last year’s Life as We Know It and will provide a voice in Arthur Christmas.
