Kenny’s Shane Jacobson may be a Stooge! (Updated!)

Kenny’s Shane Jacobson may be a Stooge! (Updated!)

Update! : Peter Farrelly has debunked rumours that Johnny Knoxville, Andy Samberg and Shane Jacobson are the frontrunners for the “Three Stooges” film. According to Farrelly, talking to EW, the roles are still wide open. “You don’t want people to think ‘they already cast that thing,’ because we haven’t….It’s wide open to everybody.”

Aussie actor Shane Jacobson, best known for playing toilet technician ‘Kenny’ in the hit film of the same name, is one of three actors rumoured for roles in Bobby & Peter Farrelly’s “Three Stooges” movie.

Jacobson, seen recently opposite Paul Hogan in “Charlie & Boots”, would play Curly opposite Johnny Knoxville as Moe and Andy Samberg (“Saturday Night Live”) as Larry, says The Wrap.

Those previously up for roles in the film – which has been on the cards for the better part of a decade now – include Jim Carrey and Sean Penn, both whom disattached themselves from the project after umpteen roadblocks.

What’s Playing
recently published the casting breakdown for the film :

The unquestioned leader of the Three Stooges, Moe is a numbskull who barks orders and expects unquestioned obedience from his two hapless companions, Larry and Curly. STRONG VERBAL AND PHYSICAL COMEDY SKILLS REQUIRED – Age range early 30’s to early 40’s.

An imbecile with an eccentric fringe of pullable frizzy hair, Larry is the bird-brained member of The Three Stooges, a victim of Moe’s bullying and Curly’s effervescent insanity. STRONG VERBAL AND PHYSICAL COMEDY SKILLS REQUIRED – Age range early 30’s to early 40’s.

A chubby, bullet-headed idiot whose hair never grows more than an eighth of an inch, Curly is irrepressible, outgoing, unpredictable, and utterly chaotic. STRONG VERBAL AND PHYSICAL COMEDY SKILLS REQUIRED – Age range early 30’s to early 40s.

“The Three Stooges” lenses in March.
