Talent hacks ... hhhmmm, you know, actual "good" actors tried that once. Remember the 2000 TV movie of the Three Stooges? It starred Paul Ben-Victor as Moe, Evan Handler as Larry, and Michael Chiklis as Curly. I actually thought Michael's reenactment of Curly and the clam chowder routine was very good. The problem with THAT movie was it focused on the Three Stooges in their real life, and not necessarily on their body of work.
Besides, when the 2012 Stooge movie was in the "we're gonna make it, we promise" stage, all of us here went through nearly every actor yet born and no one was able to fill the roles of Moe, Larry and Curly, in the context of a Farrelly Brothers film of them, of course.
There needs to be a concerted effort to make a film and story line that emulates our boys perfectly, and actors who can act just like them. In THAT regard, there would not be a movie studio, production company, or free lance filmmaker on the planet wanting to waste film and pixels on such an endeavor, because only the few of us who enjoy that kind of thing would pay money to see it, so the film would become an instant box office flop.
