Glee's Jane Lynch has nabbed the role of Mother Superior in the film version of The Three Stooges, which will be directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly. The Farrelly brothers have been trying to get this project off the ground for years, and they're finally confirming their cast.

In order to stay true to the spirit of the show, the film will be structured in a series of independent half-hour segments. In an early segment of the film, Lynch will play the nun who takes in the trio when they are dropped off at her orphanage as babies. The adult stooges will be played by Will and Grace's Sean Hayes (Larry), 24's Chris Diamantopoulos (Moe), and $#*! My Dad Says' Will Sasso (Curly), reports Deadline.

Since Lynch has been confirmed, the latest rumor bouncing around is that Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm creator Larry David will join the cast, as well as Modern Family's sexy funnylady Sofia Vergara. Production on the film is set to begin in May. —KIMBERLY STEELE
