Sean Hayes Joins The Three Stooges

ON

Sean Hayes has joined the cast of the Farrelly Brothers comedy The Three Stooges, Deadline is reporting.

Hayes, best known for his role on “Will & Grace,” will star as Larry in the tribute to the original comedy legends, performing alongside Will Sasso as Curly and a yet-to-be-cast 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.

Final 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.)
