Jane Lynch to star alongside Sofia Vergara in Three Stooges movie

Jane Lynch at the Nickelodeon 24th Annual Kids Choice Awards

Jane Lynch will star alongside Sofia Vergara in the ‘Three Stooges‘ movie.

The ‘Glee’ actress – who plays Sue Sylvester in the Fox musical-comedy series, which also features Lea Michele and Dianna Agron – will also act alongside titular trio Chris Diamantopoulos, Will Sasso and Sean Hayes.

‘Role Models’ actress Jane will play the Mother Superior of an orphanage who has been trying to get the trio adopted, but without success – and that’s not a surprise if Jane’s character is anything like the outspoken cheerleading coach she plays in ‘Glee’.

Sofia is set to star as a femme fatale in the movie, which Jim Carrey, Benicio Del Toro and Sean Penn were all linked with roles in when it was originally set up by MGM.

The 20th Century Fox remake – which will be directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly and released early next year – will be split into three 27-minute narratives.

And no doubt everyone will be hoping Jane’s outstanding ‘Glee’ performances will be reflected in the movie.
