I can’t say this with any more urgency. Somehow, some way, Peter and Bobby Farrelly have to get Russell Crowe to play Moe Howard in their Three Stooges movie, now that it’s finally been greenlit by MGM. Crowe is one of the funniest big-name guys out there. He knows what insanity is. He embraces it. I mean that as a compliment.

The Farrellys “will polish the script they wrote with Michael Cerrone and will direct the picture,” Variety‘s Michael Fleming wrote earlier today. The un-shot pic will open on 11.20.09.
