"Three Stooges" Stars Named Grand Marshalls For Daytona 500

Victims of soycumstance...
Jane Lynch and Kate Upton, co-stars of the new The Three Stooges movie, will deliver the command to start engines at this month’s Daytona 500, while co-stars Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos and Will Sasso -- Larry, Moe and Curly -- will wave green flag. Daytona International Speedway president Joie Chitwood III announced the Grand Marshalls for the race this week, saying, “"We look forward to Jane and Kate's participation in the pre-race ceremonies, adding to the star power of NASCAR's biggest and richest race of the year. The thousands of race fans in attendance and millions more watching on Fox Sports are eagerly waiting to experience 'Stoogemania,' when the Three Stooges deliver the green flag"
Jane Lynch is best known for her role as the sarcastic villain on the show Glee, for which she has earned an Emmy and Golden Globe. Kate Upton, who was raised in Melbourne, Fla., is known for her appearance in the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, where she was named rookie of the year. Sean Hayes (Larry) garnered acclaim as the hilarious Jack McFarland on the long-running sitcom Will & Grace, while Will Sasso (Curly) starred for five seasons (1997-2002) on the hit sketch comedy series MADtv. Chris Diamantopoulos (Moe) recently portrayed Frank Sinatra in the Emmy-nominated mini-series The Kennedys.
In The Three Stooges, which hits theaters everywhere April 13, newborns Larry, Moe and Curly are left on the doorstep of an orphanage run by nuns. The boys grow up finger-poking, nyuk-nyuk-nyuking and woo-woo-wooing their way to uncharted levels of knuckleheaded misadventure. Out to save their childhood home, the Stooges become embroiled in an oddball murder plot while starring in a phenomenally successful TV reality show.

    Wait, I'm confused. All 3 of the three Stooges will wave the green flag together?

    I thought that is what the honorary starter (Cena) does. If not, then what does he do?

    I thought John Cena was waiving the green flag???

    1. Beats he heck out of me, Brandon. I thought Cena was waving the green, as well. I'm no longer sure who will do what, but they'll all be part of it somehow!

      Personally I'd rather see Cena waiving the flag. All Nascar needs is to have someone saying, "Did you see the 3 stooges waiving the flag at Daytona?"

    It has to be said, can't we just watch Jane & Kate make out and skip the race?

    Wrestling and The Three Stooges, who says you can't stereotype NASCAR?
