Sean Hayes Is Larry in THE THREE STOOGES
by Brendan Bettinger Posted: April 4th, 2011
To cast the role of Larry in The Three Stooges, the Farrelly brothers cycled through Sean Penn, Paul Giamatti, Andy Samberg, and most recently James Marsden. In the end, the slapstick-heavy role will go to Emmy winner and wild gesticulator Sean Hayes (Will & Grace). Hayes is the second official Stooge, following the hiring of Will Sasso ($h*! My Dad Says) to play Curly. Hank Azaria (Love and Other Drugs) was the latest actor to be mentioned as the frontrunner to portray ringleader Moe, but Variety’s report lists no contenders it mentions that the role is up for grabs.
