Last week, we reported that Jackass star Johnny Knoxville was in talks to play Moe in The Farrelly Brothers’ The Three Stooges. However, THR is now reporting that while the Knoxville expressed interest in joining the project, no formal offer was made and the actor is considering two other projects over at Paramount.
As we reported at the beginning of the month, the two projects are Mustache Riders and First Man. Mustache Riders, would have Knoxville reuniting with his Jackass co-stars Bam Margera and Ryan Dunn and the Broken Lizard team for a comedy about a gang of crooks who set out to find a buried treasure alongside a grizzled outlaw. As for First Man, Knoxville would play the husband of a woman who is running for President.
