There is now one nun for every 'Stooge.'

Jennifer Hudson, the impossibly talented star of "Dreamgirls," will be soon be singing (we hope!) for the orphans as she joins the cast of "The Three Stooges," according to Deadline.

Jennifer will be playing the role of Sister Rosemary, one of the nuns at the orphanage where Larry, Moe and Curly grew up. She joins Jane Lynch as Mother Superior and Larry David as Mother Mengele.

Hmm... could a spin-off called "The Three Nuns" be far behind? Not to be confused, of course, with "The Three Sisters," the stage play by Anton Chekhov. Woo woo woo!

The cast also includes Chris Diamontopoulos (Moe), Sean Hayes (Larry), Will Sasso (Curly), Stephen Collins (the villainous Mr. Harter) and Craig Bierko (the thuggish Mac).

Jennifer Hudson won an Oscar for her performance as Effie White in "Dreamgirls" and has since appeared in "Sex and the City," "Fragments" and "The Secret Life of Bees." She'll next be seen as Winnie Mandela in "Winnie," a biography film about the wife of Nelson Mandela, who will be played by Terrence Howard.

"The Three Stooges" is currently filming under the direction of Peter and Bobby Farrelly and will be released sometime in 2012.
