It’s nearly the holidays, so you know what that means: the live TV musical craze will be back in full swing.
And the next movie to get the musical telecast treatment is none other than A Christmas Story, which will air on Fox following the network’s success with Grease: Live, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and The Passion. A Christmas Story: Live! had already cast Matthew Broderick as adult Ralphie/the narrator, Andy Walken as young Ralphie, and Maya Rudolph as Mother Parker, but the live telecast has just added two more comedy stalwarts to the program: Jane Krakowski and Chris Diamantopoulos.

The Three Stooges are coming back, again. Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos, and Will Sasso are set to return as the idiot brothers in a new sequel to the 2012 comedy by the Farrelly brothers.
The announcement comes as a big surprise, seeing as the last film wasn’t much loved. Though it fared better than expected with critics, it flopped with audiences, earning just $54 million worldwide. Then again, screwing everything up, only to survive to screw up another day, is kind of the Stooges’ M.O. So in that sense, maybe this news is entirely appropriate.

Remember when we thought for a minute that Johnny Knoxville might play Moe in the Peter and Bobby Farrelly version of The Three Stooges? That didn’t happen, but now things have come full circle, in a way, as the new trailer for the film opens by emulating the warning that opened every episode of Knoxville’s breakout show Jackass. The thrust of this trailer is slapstick: face slaps, eye pokes, hammers to the forehead, shellfish down the pants and a lot more. The question is: does it work? Read More »

Although that first domestic trailer for Peter and Bobby Farrelly‘s The Three Stooges left me pretty cold, with just a month to go until the film’s release it seemed worth giving the new international trailer a fair shot. Unfortunately, though the new video does more efficient job of laying out the plot, it fares no better at bringing the funny. Your mileage may vary, though, so check out the trailer after the jump.

This week cameras begin to roll on a heist film called The Black Marks, which has a cast led by Kurt Russell, with Matt Dillon, Chris Diamantopoulos and Jay Baruchel in supporting roles. Jonathan Sobol wrote and is directing the story of a group of thieves led by a former motorcycle daredevil (Russell) who go after one last big score.
Now the film has added more supporting players: Terence Stamp, Katheryn Winnick and Kenneth Welsh. Read More »
I’d like you all to do something for me. When you watch this trailer for Peter and Bobby Farrelly‘s The Three Stooges, I’d like you to picture Sean Penn, Jim Carrey and Benicio Del Toro in the roles that are now occupied by Sean Hayes, Will Sasso, and Chris Diamantopoulos. Because the fact that Penn, Carrey and Del Toro had even thought about doing this movie is totally insane, seeing what eventually came out of the project. I’m sure what they would have made might not have borne much of a likeness to this, because it couldn’t have been the disaster that this appears to be. But it’s fun to think about — a lot more fun than you’ll get out of this trailer, I bet. Read More »
Only hours after the news that Bobby and Peter Farrelly are moving forward with a sequel to Dumb and Dumber, we’ve got the first real look at the Farrellys’ new Stooges. Here are Will Sasso, Chris Diamantopoulos, and Sean Hayes as Curly, Moe and Larry in The Three Stooges. I invite you to compare and contrast Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe in this pic, and old shots of Jim Carrey as Lloyd Christmas from Dumb and Dumber. There’s a certain family resemblance, I think. Check out a full image of the trio below. Read More »
Fox’s upcoming The Three Stooges, a long-time dream project of comedy directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly, is an object of curiosity for me. The movie has bounced through a couple studios, and once almost rolled with a high-profile cast that included Jim Carrey, Sean Penn and Benecio del Toro. Things fell apart, and early this year the project landed at Fox. Then it moved quickly, assembling a cast that includes Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe Howard, Sean Hayes as Larry Fine, Will Sasso as Curly Howard, and Jane Lynch, Larry David (playing a nun!), Sofía Vergara, Jennifer Hudson, Stephen Collins, and Carly Craig.
We’ve seen a few set photos and little else. Now there is a poster image of sorts, but it shies away from really revealing the new Stooges. (Even the old banner above shows more.) Check it out below. Read More »

I’m very curious to see what Peter and Bobby Farrelly have done with The Three Stooges, which is a film they’ve wanted to make for years, and eventually shot early this year in Atlanta with Sean Hayes as Larry, Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe, and Will Sasso as Curly. Have they come up with something that will have any of the iconic comic appeal of the original Stooges? That seems impossible, given the fact that they’re making this film in a totally different comedy landscape. Turns out that we’ll find out what they’ve done with it in April of next year. Read More »
There’s been a lot of talk in Atlanta over the past couple weeks about The Three Stooges, which Peter and Bobby Farrelly are crewing up to start shooting in a couple weeks, but which hadn’t yet locked down the third lead. We know that Will Sasso will play Curly, Sean Hayes will play Larry, and a few other smaller parts are cast as well. (Sofia Vergara will be a ‘femme fatale’ in the second of the film’s three short stories.)
Now it appears that Chris Diamantopoulos, who had a recurring part on the last season of 24, will be the ‘discovery’ to play Moe. Read More »
