Johnny Depp and Sean Penn have been reported to be considered to star in "The Three Stooges". According to Just Jared, In Touch Magazine has reported that the Farrelly brothers are looking forward to sign the two Hollywood big names as two of the Stooges for their feature film adaptation of the comedy act.

Quoting In Touch's insider of the matter, the gossip site claimed that Johnny could be up for the role of Moe and Sean is most likely be given the Larry character, adding further that the filmmaker brothers haven't got a clue of whom to play Curly. "They want Johnny to play Moe and Sean Penn will be Larry - they're still looking to cast Curly," the quotation from the insider read.

Supporting Just Jared's report, FilmDrunk came up with a story that Billy West, the "The Ren and Stimpy Show" and "Futurama" voice actor, has a meeting with Sean Penn on Wednesday, February 4, and Thursday, February 5. The meetings reportedly will be done so that West can aid Penn in preparing for his Larry impression.

As of news time, none of these reports has been confirmed or denied. However, it was noted that Bobby and Peter Farrelly will start their work on "The Three Stooges" after they are done with their other film with the Jonas Brothers, " Walter the Farting Dog".

This is one movie I won't even rent if they use Sean Penn, this guy sucks. I hope they find someone else to play Moe or this movie will bomb!

For SURE, it's gotta be Jack Black as Curly. Ha! I thought of that, then 'googled' and found this post. So, the 'collective coffee' is brewing up!

Exactly! I thought of Jack Black 1st off. If not him, Mike Myers, bald.

Oscar nominated actor for best supporting role in Chicago was John C. Reilly! He would be the perfect character for Curly. Johnny Depp, Sean Penn, and John C. Reilly make the perfect set up for the Three Stooges. It can be just as funny as the original!

Shave off Jack Black's hair and we have a cast. Good luck, I am sure this one will have more female Stooge fans. The old one was great, but not many females can get into it. Hope it is kept simple and lean like the original.
