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?

    The ONLY movie that was any good was paid for and directed by Mel Gibson. It showed the truth, and the real life crap that all three men went through.
    Moe was a smart business man. He knew what he wanted, and he and Larry were friends for life. Larry was the only stooge that wasn’t related to Moe. Shemp and Curly were brothers of Moe. What can this movie show that wasn’t already uncovered by Mel? He’s the biggest fan of the stooges and made an honest worthwhile movie of their story. Tell Hollywood to let it go. While we’re on the subject, let’s discuss another HUGE MISTAKE- The Green Hornet remake with Seth Rogen…REALLY? Is that necessary? And Johnny as Tonto? FOR GOD’S SAKE! Find some REAL WRITERS and get better movies for once. Look at the upcoming movies being filmed. Just another rerun of all the crap that came before it. I am NOT a hater….just tired of all the rehash from years past. Imagination is dead in Hollyweird.

    Ummm…OK, I LOVE JD, but, really? Why do this to the Stooges?? Doesn’t quite make sense except for the corporate greed, which I would HOPE that he would avoid like the freaking plauge. I don’t think imagination is dead in Hollywood, just broke.

    john goodman would make a good curly..he’s kinda heavy set but can make me laugh…plus he used to do the three stooges’s impressions all the time when he was on the show, Roseanne.

    ya know, they weren’t funny when i was growing up
    and they are still not funny. stupid yes funny no.
    maybe part of film history but not a good part.
    poking eyes out, hitting heads with hammers, sorry does not
    make me laugh.
    depp has depth doesn’t need this stuff.
    now, my idea of funny somewhat from that era, victor borge.
    he had class, wit, intellect.
    maybe johnny could find a partner and play one half of
    the smothers brothers, now thats comedy !!!!!!!!

    Johnny Depp doesn’t do comedy roles. I think Ben Stiller could be a good Moe.

    Jonny Depp as a Stooge:
    What has Depp been through to deserve such a role as Moe.
    Poor choice Depp, he hasn’t struggled as the stooges and he’s
    not that funny.
    Sean Penn,I bet Moe, Larry,Curly and Shemp are crying in there graves.
    At least use the Baldwin brothers,they would’nt need to act stupid.

    margo Says:

    I doubt that I would go see a movie that tries to re-create the Stooges of the 1930s-1940s. However, if they put together a new team of three guys, who have their own style and physical comedy, then I might be interested in seeing it.

    Deppaholic Says:

    Johnny would be a great Moe, probably even better than the real Moe himself. I think Will Sasso who used to be on Mad TV would make an awesome Curly, of course he isn’t in the same class as Johnny but then again neither is Sean lol. anyways I think it would rawk to see it casted that way.

    Johnny, You are too good an actor to play a sleazeball comic. Have class and walk away from it.

    i went through all the comments tryin to remember the guy from mad tv ,you hit it. will sasso would be great for curly. penn needs to shed a few pounds but the hair is perfect like when he was a lawyer for al pacino as far as moe depp doesnt fit at all. i think dinero” whyyy i ouggghhhtta” would be cool comin from his facial expressions would fit and he has done comedy but hes to big to do this kind of role. besides he has never changed his hairdo and dont think he would for this. keep searchin for moe and use penn and sasso.

    Agree w/ David about “The Three Stooges”, the movie that Mel Gibson was involved with. It is a very good biopic about the stooges. The character of Curly is played by Michael Chiklis. Believe it or not, he makes an EXCELLENT Curly. Check out this movie. Besides, didn’t the Farrely Bros do the stooges in “Brother Where Art Thou?”

    Without the “real” Curly, it’s just ‘Two Stooges and Some Other Guy’!

    A remake of the 3 stooges. You’ve got to be kidding. I flat out refuse here and now to see such an act of sacrilege.

    Rob Says:

    This film should not be made. No matter how good it is, or who they get to play Moe, Larry and Curly, it will not do the Stooges justice. Just because the Farrelly brothers can make this film, it doesn’t mean they should make this film. I don’t want to see the Stooges turn over in their graves. Although they could make that funny. Leave the genius of the Stooges alone. No one would try and re-make Citizen Kane, would they? Please don’t make this film!!
