Hugh Jackman’s next role: "X-Rated Men"?

Let’s just say there something about Hugh Jackman’s upcoming film project.

In a new movie from the Farrelly Brothers (who brought us such classics as "There’s Something About Mary," "Shallow Hal," and "Dumb & Dumber") Jackman will reportedly star opposite Kate Winslet as a man with, well, an unusual deformity.

According to Australia’s News.com.au:

Jackman plays a man whose testicles are located under his chin and Winslet plays a woman who goes out on a date with his character.

I mean, I know Jen and I have been railing against Hollywood's reliance on remakes of late, but is this really the only other option?

And, no, apparently we won’t have to sit through 90 minutes of [expletive]-face jokes. The supposed Jackman portion is only one of 17 short vignettes included in the movie, which will also include performances from Naomi Watts, Gerard Butler, Justin Long, Elizabeth Banks, Sam Rockwell and Liev Schreiber. No word yet on what physical quirks, if any, they'll sport.

Hasn't this already been covered on Family Guy?
