Who's the Stooge Now?

If you haven't heard, Hollywood, unable to create any good new ideas, continues to attempt to revive old classics, the latest being the Three Stooges.

And which actors will take on the rolls of Larry, Curly & Moe? They say it will be Sean Penn, Benicio Del Toro and Jim Carrey. From my view point, Carrey is the only one who is even remotely funny. He's too skinny, but at least he's funny. Sean Penn???? Has he EVER been funny? WHY would someone pick him for the roll of Larry?
From Sean Penn, Benicio Del Toro and Jim Carrey are lining up to star as Larry Curly and Moe – better known as The Three Stooges for the Farrelly brothers and MGM.Penn is apparently in place as Larry, while Jim Carrey is negotiating and considering an all-McDonald’s diet to gain 40 pounds for the role of Jerome “Curly” Howard. Del Toro hasn’t locked down a deal yet, but MGM and the brothers are convinced he’s the man for Moe.The Farrellys have been trying to get this thing moving for years – setting it up at Sony, Warners and now MGM, which has pushed to nab the rights to the team’s films and lives.
Anyone else think these are maybe not the best choices?
