Casting Larry David as a nun is brilliant — as strange and amusing as Condoleezza Rice’s turn as herself last week on “30 Rock.”

Known for his constant kvetching and general misanthropy on “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” David has been announced as the newest cast member on the upcoming “Three Stooges” movie, which will co-star fellow TV comedians Sean Hayes (“Will and Grace”) and Jane Lynch (“Glee”). Like Lynch, David will play a senior nun, but one with a last name that momentarily shocked the Shmooze: Mengele, like the infamous Auschwitz doctor who fled after the war to South America.

We’re not sure what connection there might be between David’s Mother Mengele and the Nazi war criminal, but we imagine it’ll come up in some fashion when the movie arrives in theaters next year.
