While we can't exactly say that a new incarnation of the 'Three Stooges' was ever desired, there was a morbid, drive-by-the-accident curiosity at the thought of Benicio del Toro, Sean Penn and Jim Carrey re-envisioning the characters. Penn as Larry ... it would either be a train wreck or a moment of brilliance dating back to the days of 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High.'

But as time moved on, and the casting rumors grew more typical and less insane. As of January, Peter and Bobby Farrelly were looking at the likes of Johnny Knoxville, Andy Samberg and Shane Jacobson. Now Justin Timberlake is leading the potential casting possibilities.

Yep, 'The Social Network' star could potentially play Larry, and the Farrellys are looking far and wide to find their ideal Stooges.
