The "Will & Grace" actor joins Will Sasso in Fox's comedy, which is being directed by the Farrelly brothers.

Sean Hayes, best known for his work on TV’s Will & Grace, has been cast as Larry in 20th Century Fox’s Three Stooges movie.

Hayes joins Will Sasso in the comedy being directed by the Farrelly brothers. Still up for grabs is the part of Moe.

The movie is not a biopic but will be divided into roughly half-hour vignettes.

When the project was set up at MGM, the Farrellys had Sean Penn as Larry (that same incarnation had Jim Carrey as Curly and Benicio del Toro as Moe).

Stooges marks a rare movie appearance for Hayes, with an appearance in 2007’s The Bucket List as his last onscreen work. He is repped by WME and Kapital Entertainment.
