London: Jennifer Hudson signed up for a role in the Farrelly Brothers’ new film ‘Three Stooges’ as a tribute to her late mother, who loved the slapstick trio.
The 30-year-old singer and actress will show off her comedic talents when she plays Sister Rosemary alongside Jane Lynch as ‘Mother Superior’ in the upcoming adaptation, which will hit the theatres next year.
Hudson said that the film has a lot of sentimental meaning, as her mum Darnell, who was killed in 2008, was a big fan of the Stooges.
“It’s so different from anything I’ve done. I play a nun. I feel like I’m getting my feet wet in comedy. Another reason I took this role is because my mum was a huge fan of the Three Stooges,” the Daily Star quoted her as telling Ebony magazine.
