Knoxville Wanted For “Three Stooges”

Peter and Bobby Farrelly are reportedly eager to cast “Jackass” star Johnny Knoxville as Moe Howard in their modern take on “The Three Stooges” reports Variety.

Knoxville is said to be interested in the coveted comic role which the Farrelly brothers want to lock down first before finalising casting for the other two key roles of Larry Fine and Curly Howard.

The Farellys are said to be waiting for Knoxville to officially accept the part, as negotiations have not yet formally begun. Knoxville’s name was first linked to the ‘Stooges’ film right at the start of the year.
