Sean Penn drops out of 'The Three Stooges'



Tbd-seanpenn061809 In a blow to the growing Hollywood mythos of Sean Penn, the actor will not be one of The Three Stooges -- or in the movie Cartel, for that matter.

Spokeswoman Mara Buxbaum said he is dropping out of the films, the AP reports, but did not specify a reason. Probably so he could file divorce papers from Robin Wright a third time, we're guessing.

Buxbaum said if the start dates on the productions were to be postponed, Penn would remain involved. He was slated to star as Larry in Stooges and as a man protecting his son in Cartel. Reports are saying that he plans on focusing on his family for now. Until a juicier role comes along.
