She has the looks and curves that can turn any man into a stooge, and now supermodel Kate Upton, this year’s cover subject on the celebrated Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, is working her magic on the big screen – and on the ultimate knuckleheads, THE THREE STOOGES. It was announced by Twentieth Century Fox on Thursday, Feb. 15.
In the comedy, careening into theaters everywhere April 13th, Upton makes a special cameo appearance as ‘Sister Bernice’ a swimsuit-wearing nun at an orphanage that has housed Larry, Curly and Moe since the Stooges were infants.[ Also Read: Swimsuit Supermodel Curves in Lexus Campaign ]
Upton, along with Jane Lynch (who portrays the Mother Superior in the film), will serve as a Grand Marshall at the Daytona 500, NASCAR’s most prestigious race, on Sunday, Feb. 26 (FOX, 1 p.m. ET).
Upton and Lynch will deliver the four most famous words in motorsports – “Drivers, start your engines” – after the “Stooges” (Sean Hayes as Larry; Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe, and Will Sasso as Curly) deliver the iconic green flag. (Upton telling guys to start their engines is probably a redundancy!)
Also starring in the Twentieth Century Fox film are Sofia Vergara, Jennifer Hudson, Craig Bierko, and Larry David (as ‘Sister Mary-Mengele’).
In the picture above: The Three Stooges (Will Sasso, left, as Curly; Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe; and Sean Hayes as Larry) don’t know quite what to make of the “nunkini” worn by the beautiful Sister Bernice (Kate Upton).
