Giamatti Replaces Penn In “Stooges”

Paul Giamatti (“Sideways,” “Cold Souls”) may be stepping in for Sean Penn in the role of Larry for the upcoming “The Three Stooges” project reports The Boston Globe.

The Farrelly Brothers, who are directing the film, had Benicio Del Toro and Penn attached as Moe and Larry respectively with Jim Carrey linked to the role of Curly.

Penn dropped out citing ‘personal reasons’, while the article indicates Carrey will also not be a part of the project. Del Toro is still attached to play Moe though.
