“Will and Grace” star Sean Hayes is set to play Larry in Peter and Bobby Farrelly’s “The Three Stooges” project for 20th Century Fox reports Deadline.
Hayes joins Will Sasso, who had previously been set to play Curly, while the search is still on for the role of Moe. Hayes’ knack with physical comedy and strong skill playing the lovable simpleton character during readings of the script is said to have won him the part.
Larry Fine served as something of a balancing act amidst the original Stooges trio, anchoring the stormy Moe and the manic Curly. Production on the $30 million PG-rated feature aims to kick off later this month.
