del Toro is Moe, Penn could do Larry, but please don’t let Carrey be Curley!

THR.com is reporting that the Farrely brothers (There’s Something about Mary, Dumb & Dumber) are directing “The Three Stooges,” scheduled for release in 2010.

Casting is rumored to be  as thus:

Moe: Benicio del Toro

Larry: Sean Penn

Curley (the fat bald one): Jim Carrey – at least he is in talks to play Curley

Surprisingly, I think that Penn and del Toro can pull it off. Carrey on the other hand is no Curley.

If it were me, I would cast Don Rickles, if he is up for it. Maybe an unknown could be found.

I like Jim Carrey, I just think there is too much Jim Carrey in him to portray Curley.

Three Stooges coming together at MGM.

Let’s hope Amazon kicks the Shuffle right in the proprietary headphones

Amazon Spindle

Amazon Spindle

UPDATE: I missed the part of the story where the author in wired mentioned that this was a hypothetical piece of equipment. Nevertheless, my commentary still applies.

Earlier this week Apple announced the new iPod Shuffle. A device that could only be worse if it was made by Coby.

Wired is reporting that Amazon is looking to get into the game with a new type of device called the Spindle. While the images look like mock-ups, the concept may just work. Amazon’s music store may not have as rich of a catalog as iTunes, but its versatility makes it superior in many ways.

If Amazon can find a way to add the Spindle to the Kindle’s 3G network for music downloads, Apple may have a real fight on their hands. Especially if their innovative products continue to almost dare their beloved followers to prove their loyalty.

The Macbook Air, iPod Shuffle, and iPhone’s lack of background process are just a few examples of how Apple may become like Palm in the future. By releasing devcies that are just innovative enough to give competitors an idea of how to improve upon the concept and release a superior product.
