Movies Blog has moved! come with us to mtv news »

High jinks lovers are in luck because today marks the release of "The Three Stooges" on DVD and Blu-Ray. To celebrate the occasion, we are pleased to present a featurette clip courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment from the DVD/Blu-Ray, featuring some familiar members of the MTV family.

In the movie, we find Chris Diamantopoulos's character, Moe — one-third of the titular Stooge trio — joining the cast of MTV's "Jersey Shore." Moe may have received his very own "Jersey Shore" inspired nickname ("Dyna-Moe"), however as the featurette clip reminds us, the arrangement is hardly smooth sailing for everyone involved.

This behind-the-scenes look from "The Three Stooges" special features lets viewers get a peek at "Jersey Shore" cast working on the movie, and fans also have a chance to hear from directors/co-writers Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly who comment on the positive experience they had working with the reality TV cast.

Cabin Zoolander

"The Cabin in the Woods" almost defeats the purpose of the Double Feature Friday this week, since the only sensible thing to do is see it twice. But if you are interested in catching some non-"Cabin" movies this week, here are some recommendations to keep you busy.

But seriously, see "The Cabin in the Woods."

"The Cabin in the Woods" & "Zoolander"
This one is tricky. Like all other situations when discussing "Cabin in the Woods," I really have to measure my words here. There is one joke in "Cabin" that is set up and pays off particularly brilliantly. It has something vaguely to do "Zoolander." I won't say how and spoil the fun, but if you see "Cabin" this weekend, you'll know what I'm talking about. The real point is "See the movie." It doesn't matter what you watch before or after. See "Cabin in the Woods," and then see it again.

Ashton KutcherWhen it comes to the biggest casting news of the day, don't look towards the big screen; it's the small one in your living room that holds today's hugest surprise.

Ashton Kutcher is officially the man to replace Charlie Sheen on "Two and a Half Men," putting an end to speculation and rumors that have involved the likes of John Stamos, Rob Lowe and Hugh Grant. It's Kutcher's first return to scripted television in a regular role since "That '70s Show," and one has to wonder how the new gig will affect his future as a Hollywood movie star, for better or for worse.

Read about the rest of today's casting news past the jump, including Alex Pettyfer's new job as a stripper and Lindsay Lohan's continued will-she-won't-she association with "Gotti."

Joel EdgertonThe question surrounding Kathryn Bigelow's next film, titled "Kill Bin Laden," is no longer "Will they still make it?" Rather, it's a question of who will star in it, and Joel Edgerton has helped to answer that.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Edgerton has signed on for the film, which chronicles a failed mission to kill the terrorist leader in 2001. In it, he'll reportedly play a special operative that's part of an ensemble of male commandos. But, it's not the only high-profile project the actor's name is attached to.

The LA Times also writes that Edgerton is on the short-list of actors considered for "The Hunger Games." (Could he be Haymitch? President Snow?) And while Edgerton is widely in demand, the star isn't saying yes to everything that comes his way. The article also notes that he allegedly turned down the chance to play opposite Kristen Stewart in "Snow White and the Huntsman."

Check out the rest of Friday's biggest casting news in Hollywood, including the all-star cast to bring "Lincoln" to the masses.

Bieber and WahlbergJustin Bieber. Mark Wahlberg. On the basketball court. Say hi to your mother for me, alright?!

No, this isn't a weird "Clue" spinoff we're engaging in. Instead, it's the premise of a new basketball drama starring the "Never Say Never" sensation and the superstar actor and producer behind "Entourage" and "The Fighter." Deadline has the news, saying that Wahlberg will produce and co-star in a b-ball movie with Bieber that's described as "The Color of Money" meets "The Karate Kid." Baby, baby, baby ooh indeed.

There's much more casting news today beyond Wahlberg and Bieber's full court press. After the jump, learn who's reportedly in talks for "The Lone Ranger" (hint: not Ryan Gosling) and the identity of one of Superman's newest foes!

The KillingAMC's new series "The Killing" has been, for lack of a better word, killing it. The powerful murder mystery drama has made such an impression on the small screen since its debut earlier this month that its cast is already being sought after by Hollywood to showcase their talents on the big screen.

Take, for instance, Mireille Enos, who plays the lead character Sarah Linden on the show. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress is currently in talks to star as none other than Brad Pitt's wife in the upcoming "World War Z." The movie, based on Max Brooks' novel of the same name, follows life in a post-zombie apocalyptic world.

Check out the rest of today's biggest casting news, including another "Killing" star -- Joel Kinnaman -- making the transition to film for the thriller "Safe House."

Javier BardemJavier Bardem, you have reached "The Dark Tower."

After months of casting rumors that eventually squared firmly on the "psychologically" locked Spanish actor, it now appears all but certain that Bardem will step into the role of gunslinger Roland Deschain. Deadline has the news (and we say thankya) that Bardem is close enough to completing his deal that director Ron Howard is already meeting with other actors to cast roles based on Bardem's commitment to a trilogy of films and a limited television run between each movie.

Bardem's nearly-sealed deal isn't the only casting news in the movies world today. After the jump, learn who's been cast as the villain opposite Jonah Hill in "21 Jump Street," who's playing a femme fatale in "The Three Stooges" and much more!

Robert Pattinson. "Akira." Two very different worlds quite possibly colliding.

When MTV News recently sat down with RPattz, we brought up the subject of the "Akira" movie, a project that he's currently rumored for alongside a shortlist of other young hot actors like Andrew Garfield. But while he says he "love[s] the movie," he's only seen the reports that you have.

"I mean, I don’t know. I’ve seen the same thing as anybody else has, really," Pattison told MTV. Still, despite no concrete attachment to the project, the actor digs its style. "I mean, I like motorbikes," he said with a laugh.

After the jump check out the rest of today's news, including the new release date for "Monsters University," Sean Hayes being cast in "The Three Stooges" movie, Lindsay Lohan's latest offer, and why Mark Wahlberg may take the "Bait and Switch."

Red DawnThe "Red Dawn" reboot has already changed its targeted enemy from Russia to China, but the latest change is perhaps the most drastic of them all.

"Red Dawn," which completed filming quite a while ago, will now feature North Korean bad guys instead of Chinese villains, according to the Los Angeles Times. The report states that MGM made its decision so as to avoid issues with foreign distribution in the all-important Chinese market. The plan is to digitally replace Chinese flags and military symbols and altering dialogue to now refer to North Korea.
