Even though The Three Stooges movie seemed like it was dead in the water after Sean Penn jumped ship, it’s still alive and kicking. The actor was replaced by Paul Giamatti, and the hilarious trio is set with Jim Carrey and Benicio del Toro as the title characters. Besides Giamatti’s casting, the latest big news surrounding the film has to with Carrey’s massive weight gain for his part as Curly.
According to the Examiner, Jim Carrey is trying to pack on 50 pounds to star as the chubby member of the trio. He recently showed up at a charity event in Los Angeles appearing a little heavier than usual. He was even sporting a shaggy beard, which I don’t think is relevant to Curly’s look unless the Farrelly Brothers are trying to do something new.
It’s hard for me to see any of these men, with the exception of Paul as the characters their supposed to portray. Sure, Jim is goofy and can do comedy but even with a shaved head, I’m not sure if he can pull it off.
What do you think of Jim’s Curly look?
