Which Movie May Choose Between Justin Timberlake and Larry David for the Same Role?

Actors often have audition-room rivals — similar physical types who compete against them for almost every role — but we think it's safe to say that at no time in history before now has Justin Timberlake had to worry about Larry David being one of his. And yet, that's exactly the situation brewing with the Farrelly brothers' The Three Stooges, where Timberlake and David are both on the short list to play Larry (as well as Woody Harrelson, just to mix things up even further). At least there's one silver lining for Timberlake: Going up against the curmudgeonly David is definitely going to help him look like less of an asshole. [Boston Herald via Playlist/Indiewire]
