Somewhere between the raucous din of The Hunger Games and the quiet surprises of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Scientology movie lies the bizarre casting announcements for the Farrelly Brothers’ The Three Stooges, which continues to work overtime for the “oh, okay” of its main characters with its attention-getting assortment of apparently crucial nuns. It’s now been confirmed that said nuns will include Jennifer Hudson, likely history’s only person who will ever be qualified as an “American Idol contestant turned Academy Award-winner,” who joins the previously announced Jane Lynch and Larry David as one of the sisters charged with keeping the Stooges’ slapstick in line with God and looking funny in their habits. We demand more comically mismatched nuns! Danny Trejo as a nun! Revered interviewer Charlie Rose as a nun! Kim Kardashian as a nun! Ogre from Revenge Of The Nerds as a nun! The nuns from Blues Brothers, Sister Act, The Town, and Nuns On The Run as one giant, rat king-like nun! Nun!
