Johnny Depp Joins The Three Stooges?

Johnny Depp Joins The Three Stooges?

Johnny Depp could be starring in the upcoming film adaptation of The Three Stooges, reports In Touch.

The 45-year-old actor could soon be poking Sean Penn in the eye in the Farrelly brothers’ forthcoming comedy.

“They want Johnny to play Moe and Sean Penn will be Larry — they’re still looking to cast Curly,” an insider says.

The Farrelly brothers will work on the Stooges movie after filming Walter the Farting Dog with the Jonas Brothers this spring.

Johnny may have to get a Moe bowl haircut!

DO YOU THINK Johnny would be a great Stooge — YAY or NAY?

    How about hollywood letting the 3 stooges rest in peace and just rerun the old episodes instead of ruining this great era with remakes, again.

    Why must everything be touched a second pass? Is the industry that bereft of ideas that they have to resuscitate every gem and put a new spin on it? Agreed w/ ‘shoes’ — let these legends maintain ownership of these wonderful films…..

    CAN Depp do it? Of course! Would he be great? Indeed! SHOULD he do it NO!!! Hollywood needs to get off their duffs and come up with new and fresh and stop doing all these revisits! Johnny can certainly play the role and amaze us all once again but I doubt that he would even WANT to take on this kinda role (unless Tim Burton was directing it…dude now THAT would be interesting!) This kinda role seems like the Hollywood machine is still trying to sink their hooks in Mr. Depp and the Depp fans know that he don’t play that! (at least we hope he still wants to keep away from the ‘machine’.)

    Just another filmmaker/producer trying to get attention for his movie proposal by linking it to big names who will never be attached.

    OMG, that sounds so funny! I think these three might be able to pull it off. Love the uniqueness off each of them.

    I think he’d be fine, but I think a 3 Stooges movie is a mistake no matter who is in it.

    mickey Says:

    Oh, also Sean should play Moe because he is cranky all the time. I think Johnny should be Larry.

    It would be great and hopefully they would try to be really funny.

    Interesting…I love the three stooges…It will be great to see Johnny Depp re-creating the role of Moe. Sean Penn would be curly? Moe may have been hot when he was younger…LOL…and Johnny Depp will make Moe look G R E A T!! I don’t know, they’ll have to apply makeup to give the hot looking Johnny Depp a goofy look to bring Moe to life. Although I think Johnny will be able to capture the character…he did great in the film he did with Aidan Quinn…Johnnys’ character re-created Charlie Chaplin…and was great!
