Jennifer Hudson to Play a Nun in ‘The Three Stooges’ Film
That’s Sister Jennifer Hudson, too you! According to Billboard, the Oscar-and-Grammy winner, who was voted off the third season of ‘American Idol‘ only to go on to enjoy greater glory off the ‘Idol’ stage, will be donning a habit and rosary beads to portray a nun in ‘The Three Stooges,’ the forthcoming, long-delayed comedy from the Farrelly Brothers. We’re stoked to see Hudson show off her comedic side in what is sure to be a slapstick film.
Hudson will play one of the nuns in an orphanage where the Stooges spend some of their time. ‘Glee‘ star Jane Lynch is also a part of the film’s cast; she will play Mother Superior. Hudson and Lynch as a pair of nuns? That sounds like it should eventually be its own film spinoff.
Hudson, who is prone to showing off her beautiful, newly svelte figure in Weight Watchers commercials, also stars as the titular character in ‘Winnie,’ a biopic of South African politician Winnie Mandela, which is currently in post-production. We smell another Oscar nomination in her future!
