Jennifer Hudson arrives to join “Stooges”

scaledJennifer Hudson, who won an Oscar for her role in “Dreamgirls,” has arrived to join the cast of “The Three Stooges.”  She plays a nun.

“Working with Jennifer Hudson today,” actor Sean Hayes tweeted on Tuesday. “Looking forward to hamming it up with her. I think we should have a sing-off.”

Hayes also tweeted this “sneak peek” photo, at the right.

The project has been hopping around quite a bit and is in Cartersville again today. We understand part of Old Alabama Road near Woodland High School. If you’re driving in that area today you may want to think about another route, although with school out for the summer there’s hopefully not too much traffic.

The movie, also starring Will Sasso, Larry David, Jane Lynch and Chris Diamantopoulos, has put out numerous casting calls for young people and it appears to be working out.

“We got some cute little kids on set today and they keep snapping my suspenders,” Sasso tweeted earlier today. “I keep reacting as Curly and we all laugh and life is rad.”

Sounds like they are having fun!

@Truth Told – from what I have read (which of course isn’t always 100%) this is exactly why she had to cancel her concert (and a few others dates).

She will fit right in with the “Three Stooges”. Perfect role for her.

@truth Told- Jennifer Hudson is a hot commodity. Her people made an honest mistake with her booking. Jen tour and all of her other dates did not have enough space to be very productive. It was in her best at heart to cancel the tour and do at a later date. The tour will happen and it will be grand!!
