The Boston Globe is reporting that with the recent departure of Sean Penn as Larry in The Three Stooges movie, it seems that Paul Giamatti might step in to fill the role.

The Farrelly Brothers, who are directing this film, initially stated that Giamatti would make "a sensational Larry." However, at that time it appeared that they were looking to another actor.

Well, now it seems like Giamatti will be playing Larry, but Jim Carrey will no longer be to playing Curly.

There is word on who will replace Carrey but for now Benicio Del Toro is still attached to play Moe.
