Glee’s greatest asset Jane Lynch has just signed up to transfer her inimitable talents in intimidation to the Three Stooges film.

Lynch has been drafted in to play Mother Superior in the movie, with Deadline reporting that she’ll appear in the film’s opening ‘episode’.

As directors the Farrelly brothers have previously stated, they’re forging The Three Stooges as a proper ode to the original TV show, with the film consisting of three distinct episodes. The first episode will trace the Stooges’ years at an orphanage.

Also previously, Sean Hayes signed on as Larry, Will Sasso as Curly, and Chris Diamantopoulos is still in negotiations to play Moe.

The Farrellys have taken their time getting this project off the ground, but with casting picking up speed, it looks like they’re finally succeeding where they were previously struggling.

Think Lynch is a fine addition to the cast? Speak to us below...

      Fans of Jane Lynch will undoubtedly enjoy he performance, while fans of the Three Stooges will just shake their heads sadly. This recent trend of adding an obnoxious self awareness to films and television shows is now creeping it's way into old beloved shows and movies as well, as seen with 21 Jump Street. The charm of the Three Stooges was pure silly slapstick comedy; this will be ruined by pretentious self reference and winking at the camera, as is the way with this new Glee generation. Admittedly though, the trailer shows that the actors do indeed look and sound like the Stooges, and there does appear to be amusing slapstick ahead. Hopefully this will over power the Jane Lynch style comedy and the use of Jersey Shores Snookie. http://www.videodetective.com/movies/the-three-stooges/156563
