Chris Diamantopoulos a front runner to play Moe in The Three Stooges
It isn't known if a formal offer has been made to Chris Diamantopoulos yet, although it seems the directors have made their choice after looking at thousands of actors for the Moe part. Actors such as Hank Azaria and Johnny Knoxville have previously been mentioned in connection with the Moe role. Will Sasso is locked in to play Curly while Sean Hayes is playing Larry.
Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly will direct The Three Stooges from their own original screenplay. The story will be told in three separate vignettes of comedic stories centering around the Stooges.
At one point last year, The Three Stooges was locked in with Sean Penn, Jim Carrey, and Benicio Del Toro set to play The Three Stooges before the project fell apart.
Chris Diamantopoulos most recently starred in the final season of 24 as Rob Weiss and on the controversial mini-series The Kennedys.
The Three Stooges was released April 13th, 2012 and stars Sean Hayes, Will Sasso, Chris Diamantopoulos, Jane Lynch, Sofía Vergara, Jennifer Hudson, Craig Bierko, Stephen Collins. The film is directed by Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly.
