COUNTY, Calif. – World renowned knuckleheads Larry,
Moe and Curley – The Three Stooges – will serve as Grand
Marshals for the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway on Sunday,
March 25 at 12 p.m. PT.
As Grand Marshals, The
Three Stooges will give the command, “Gentlemen, Start Your
Engines,” to the 43-car field of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
The event will be televised at noon on FOX.
In The Three Stooges,
which hits theaters everywhere April 13, 2012, newborns Larry, Moe
and Curley are left on the doorstep of an orphanage run by nuns.
The boys grow up finger-poking, nyuk-nyuk-nyuking and woo-woo-wooing
their way to uncharted levels of knuckleheaded misadventure. Out
to save their childhood home, only The Three Stooges could become
embroiled in an oddball murder plot…while stumbling into starring
in a phenomenally successful TV reality show.
The all-new motion picture
The Three Stooges is a contemporary take on a trio of boneheads,
recreating the classic and iconic Stooge sound effects (including
“boinks,” finger-snaps, and palm claps), haircuts and
other Stooge-isms, with modern-day attitudes, situations and pop
Stars in the movie include
Emmy® and Tony® Award-winner Sean Hayes (“Will &
Grace” ), who portrays the balding, sour-faced, bushy-haired
Larry; Will Sasso (“MADtv”) as the rotund funnyman Curley,
whose trademark “nyuk-nyuk-nyuk” usually invites a physical
outburst from Moe; and Chris Diamantopoulos (“24,” “The
Kennedys”) as Moe, the dark-haired leader of the farcical
trio known for his distinctive bowl-style haircut and intolerant
ire. The Three Stooges® is a registered trademark of C3 Entertainment,
