You know how there was once talk of a "Watchmen" movie with names like Tom Cruise, Denzel Washington, Hilary Swank and John Cusack, and then we ended up with a "Watchmen" movie with Matthew Goode, Billy Crudup, Malin Akerman and Patrick Wilson? The Farrelly Brothers' new version of "The Three Stooges" seems to have undergone a similar downsizing. Initially announced with A-listers Sean Penn, Benicio Del Toro and Jim Carrey attached (with names like Russell Crowe also linked at various stages), the film is finally happening, but with a cast mostly made up of supporting players from mid-level sitcoms.

There's been a lot of movement surrounding the Farrelly Brothers' remake of "The Three Stooges," starting last year when the project moved from MGM to Fox, getting a fresh cast (Sean Penn, Jim Carrey and Benicio Del Toro were attached in the long-gestating earlier incarnation). Just last month, Johnny Knoxville was supposed to have Moe nailed down, but that turned out to be just a rumor. But the first cast member has now been locked down. EW reports that Will Sasso has officially been cast as Curly (recent reports pegged him as Moe).

Please Pick Somebody AlreadyThe casting rumors for "The Three Stooges" continues and we just wish these knuckleheads would pick someone already. First, Johnny Knoxville was said to be signing on as Moe, then he wasn't and now another name is being tipped as a favorite for the part.

Hank Azaria, Will Sasso, Johnny Knoxville Also MentionedIt's now four years since the last film from one-time comedy titans The Farrelly Brothers. The duo dominated the genre in the 1990s, knocking out three bona-fide classics, "Dumb & Dumber," "Kingpin" and "There's Something About Mary," in quick succession, but their efforts in the last decade ranged from the genial ("Stuck On You," "Fever Pitch") to the unwatchable ("Shallow Hal," "The Heartbreak Kid"). Their latest project, the Owen Wilson/Jason Sudeikis marital comedy "Hall Pass," hits theaters on Friday (and by all accounts, isn't anywhere near a comeback), which finally clears the way for their longtime passion project: "The Three Stooges."
