Though I’d barely call Larry David‘s brand of humor slaptstick, this seems like an interesting piece of casting nontheless. LD is planning on starring in the upcoming Farrelly brother’s movie for The Three Stooges.
They’re closing in on a deal with Larry David to play Mother Mengele, the unfortunate nun who runs the orphanage where the Stooges grow up and learn to create mayhem. Setting a Jewish guy to play a nun certainly sounds like David is playing against type. [Deadline]
Once David gets signed on he will join Jane Lynch, (Mother Superior), Chris Diamantopoulos (Moe), Will Sasso (Curly), and Sean Hayes (Larry). Filming is slated to begin this May.
