Casting Bits: Jennifer Hudson in ‘The Three Stooges’, Bradley Cooper in ‘Place Beyond the Pines’, Rachael Taylor in ‘Loft’
Posted on Thursday, June 2nd, 2011 by Angie Han
Shooting for the Farrelly Brothers‘ The Three Stooges has already begun in Atlanta, but it seems casting for the film isn’t over quite yet. Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson has just joined in the role of Sister Rosemary, a nun who works at the orphanges where the Stooges grow up. If you’ve been following the project, you’ll recall that her colleagues at the orphange will include Mother Superior, played by Jane Lynch, and Mother Mengele, played by Larry David. I’m going to go ahead and guess that Hudson will be playing the straight man within that holy trio — or as Deadline puts it, “the nice one.”
In addition to Hudson, Lynch, and David, the cast also includes Sean Hayes as Larry, Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe, Will Sasso as Curly, and Sofia Vergara as “a femme fatale.”
After the jump, Bradley Cooper agrees to butt heads with Ryan Gosling, and Rachael Taylor gets paid to sleep with James Marsden.
