With the upcoming Three Stooges movie now two weeks away, Mad TV alumni Will Sasso took to The Tonight Show on Friday to promote the Farrelly-directed feature. There is not a whole lot of buzz surrounding this one due to its slapstick-heavy nature, but with a cast that includes Sean Hayes, Jane Lynch, and Sofia Vergara this is not exactly a negligible offering from Hollywood.
For those not in the know, Sasso is set to play Curly. The second video includes discussion of that, and the actor’s respect for the franchise; however, the highlight of the interview came in the first half of the appearance where he showed off his Jay Leno and David Letterman impressions. Apparently, the key to doing a good Leno is to just say names while with Letterman it is all in the chuckle.
The Three Stooges will hit theaters on Friday, April 13. It will definitely be interesting to see how this one plays out with moviegoers. Farrelly Bros. movies normally open close to the $10-15 million range yet the franchise is still beloved by many leading some to expect a figure closer to the duo’s all-time high of $24 million set over a decade ago with Me, Myself, and Irene.
