For the split second after we heard Sofia Vergara’s Three Stooges casting news, we secretly hoped she’d be playing Moe. In your face, gender expectations! While that miracle of movie making has not come to pass, The Hollywood Reporter claims Vergara is in talks to join the Stooges as a “devious woman who pretends to be the wife of a dying man and tells the Stooges she’ll pay them a handsome sum if they kill the man in his sleep.” Sounds like just the kind of woman who could frantically run in a circle on the ground shouting “Woo woo woo!” but still look fierce doing it.
If she signs on, Vergara would be joining Sean Hayes as Larry and Will Sasso as Curly; the film is still searching for their third stooge,Ã‚Â though Hank Azaria as Moe has been a front-runner for awhile. As sultry as her character Gloria tends to be on Modern Family, Vergara has always been delightfully goofy, with an excellent sense of comedic timing. Stooges is shaping up so well in fact, we might actually consider seeing it in theaters. If nothing else is out. And we got paid that day. And they switch Vergara to play Moe, because that is what the people want! WHO’S WITH US?
