Sean Hayes

Larry Fine

20th Century Fox has tapped Sean Hayes to play Larry Fine in the studio’s upcoming “Three Stooges” remake.Peter and Bobby Farrelly will direct and write the project, scheduled for release next year.

Hayes, best known for his role as Jack McFarland on “Will & Grace,” joins Will Sasso, who was cast as Curly last week. The role of Moe Howard is still out to thesps.
Fox exec Jeremy Kramer will oversee the long-gestating project, which the Farrellys originally developed at MGM before it landed at Fox.
Conundrum partner Bradley Thomas will produce with Charles B. Wessler, while Earl Benjamin, the gatekeeper of the Stooges’ estate, will exec produce.
Sean Hayes was known for his physical comedy during the “Will & Grace” days, almost a requirement for the slapstick-heavy Stooges.
The plan is to divide the PG-rated film into three, 27-minute segments driven by physical comedy.

This is a sure sign of the economic miasma the Middle Class remains in… The original Stooges were both a commentary on and an escape from the disaster of The Depression.

“There will be non-stop slapping, more in the tone of Dumb and Dumber than anything else we’ve done. Our goal is 85 minutes of laughs in a film that will be very respectful of who the Stooges were. It’s by far the riskiest project we’ve ever done, without question, but it is also the one closest to our hearts.”

– Peter Farrelly
