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?

    Does anyone really believe this story? What a bunch of baloney!
    Depp and/or Penn…it will never happen.

    Johnny would be an awesome Stooge! He’s got that “crazy funny” thing going on.

  • jack

    They could good, if they make it really quirky. Seam Penn needs to do a comedy, again.

  • Gracie

    I think this would be great to see him and Sean Penn in a comedy…I think they should cast “Carrot Top” for curly. He has an amazing sense of humour……..not that I’ve ever seen his Vegas show but from appearances on Gene Simmons family jewels.

    Unreal!!!! — I heard this on WDVE this morning and I knew it would freak you out!

  • stellar

    sean penn and depp will be fantastic! id like to see the 3rd stooge be a frat packer uy to pull in the young audience such as jack black, james franco, seth, i actually think matt damon could pull it off- he commits to a role!

    James Gandolfini should be curly, it would be great then!

    There simply aren’t any original ideas anymore. Re-makes are just a lazy attempt to suck in the stupid cash paying public by adding a little more blood or obscenity in their movies. If I want to watch the Stooges, I will watch the Original stooges, the great ones! If I want to watch Friday the 13th, I will watch the 1980 version. The best one! ETC…By remaking movies or shows, you destroy the original concepts that were great. Save your money people. If you must watch remade garbage, then go buy it in the $5.00 movie bin at Wal-Mart.

    Michael Chiklis was great as Curly in a 2000 TV movie, but he remade himself for THE SHIELD and may not fit the part nor want the part as Curly again. How about putting Mel Gibson somewhere in such a film? I’ve heard he is a big Stooges fan. Maybe he could be Moe or fill a cameo role as Shemp Howard.

  • muriel

    i love this man. but i can’t see him in this movie.but to each his own, if he wants to do this,more power to him. i just can’t see him being that “goofy”. it’s just not him. I LOVE YOU JOHNNY!!!

  • t-rex

    How ’bout Don Rickles as Curly?

  • http://yahoo kathy

    I use to watch them when they was on TV.Them guys make laugh so hard.I think will do good playing Moe.

    I mad because in music their remaking old songs, for example Right Round by Flo Rida is based of of Round Round by Dead or Alive. The same things with movies they already ruined many movies for example they made a crappy remake of Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and they are going to remake A Nightmare On Elm Street. Why is everyone now a days so unoriginal remaking crappy versions of old sucsess and the reason is for money. I personally don’t understand why they can’t leave these things alone.

    Don’t get me wrong I’m a huge fan of Johnny Depp, yet I don’t think he could do it. The only one who can play Moe Howard is Moe Howard. Now I’ve never seen Sean Penn, the only tip is he should learn how to play the violin, or else. Even if he does he can’t pull it off either because their is something about the originals that you just can’t cope or remake, no matter how many times you try. The statement you got it right the first time is right.

    Bottom line get something else, and in response to common beleif I’m a female and I love the three stooges. That is up to the point of Shemp. After he died and Joe Besser took his place that is when the whole show went down the tubes. My saying is you need two Howards to make a good Three Stooges episode, and that would be true through out history.

  • tom.p

    It’s going to be hard to do the three stooges but you’ve got alot of talent with with johnny and sean how about michael chiklis from the shield to play curley at least he won’t have to shave his head

  • CHRISG17

    In my opinion……There is only one missing link to the cast and only one person that could pull two of the best from comedy and serious roles in Jim Carrey and Sean Penn together, and that’s Robin Williams as Moe- Everyone respects him in the industry, and he has just enough of both elements to make it a real sell- Not to mention his phrasing would be dead on and it wouldn’t take much for him to mimic the character- He is the ringere and I hope they approach him with it-

    kevin james as curly
    kevin spacey as moe
    kevin pollack as larry

    the three kevins

  • deeman

    Adam sandler would be the best pick to play the part of moe

    rob schneider would be the best pick to play the part of larry

    will farrell , jack black , jim carrey would be the best choice for curry
