]]>Chris Diamantopoulos is reportedly in the process of closing his deal with 20th Century Fox for the role of Moe in the slapstick biopic. He will join Will Sasso, who was first to sign on as Curly, and “Will & Grace” star Sean Hayes, playing Larry. According to The Hollywood Reporter, rehearsals are expected to begin as early as next week. The film will be divided into approximately three half-hour vignettes and is set for a 2012 release. Diamantopoulos played Rob Weiss in a 12-episode Season 8 arc on “24,” and took on the iconic Frank Sinatra in the troubled “Kennedys” miniseries. Additionally, he starred alongside Hayes’ former “W&G” co-star Debra Messing in USA’s “The Starter Wife.” He may be best remembered for his role as Robin Williams in “Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of ‘Mork & Mindy.'” The actor has been married to “Ugly Betty’s” Becki Newton since 2005.
