Jennifer Hudson Will Be a Nun

June 2, 2011


The bizarre casting of the Farrelly Brothers' Three Stooges continues, now with former American Idol and current Weight Watchers spokesperson Jennifer Hudson joining the cast. Like Jane Lynch and Larry David before her, Hudson is joining the monastery as one of the nuns at the Stooges' orphanage, and will play a character named Sister Rosemary--who Deadline suspects will be "the nice one," and I suspect will be the one who breaks into song at some point. Hudson's Academy Award-winner status adds a little credibility to a cast largely made up of network sitcom supporting stars. But at the same time, seeing her in a habit is bound to give someone the idea for that somehow overlooked Sister Act reboot, so overall we've come out behind on this one.
