And we were beginning to think they were just gonna cut Moe out of it!

After searching both high and low and to and fro, the Farrelly Brothers have finally found themselves a frontrunner for the role of Moe in "The Three Stooges." A fella by the name of Chris Diamantopoulos is apparently the man -- or, rather, stooge -- they want for the job, according to Deadline.

Diamantopoulos (which might be the most gloriously Greek-sounding Greek name ever invented) recently appeared as Frank Sinatra in the television mini-series, "The Kennedys," and appeared as Rob Weiss, the Chief of Staff to President Allison Taylor, on the eighth and final season of "24."

If this is our Moe, he'd be joining Sean Hayes as Larry and Will Sasso as Curly in what has been one of the most difficult-to-cast comedies in the history of laughter itself. Sofia Vergara is also on board as a femme fatale that makes things complicated for the boys.

So is this it? Do we have our slapstick-happy trio? Or will we start hearing talk about the likes of James Marsden and Johnny Knoxville again? Stay tuned!
