'Fading Gigolo' Trailer: Woody Allen Is A Pimp

How does an Average Joe get two mega, mega hotties like Sofia Vergara and Sharon Stone to want him? At the same time even? Easy. Charge 'em a thousand smackers for his "services" and pretend to be a total pro at the ménage à trois.

"You're an experienced lover. Why shouldn't you get paid for it?" That's the logic of Woody Allen's bookseller-made-pimp hustler character as he tells his sole client, John Turturro (who also wrote and directed the flick) as a shy but super cash-hungry fifty-something, that he's essentially signed him up for sex slave duty in this first trailer for "Fading Gigolo."

The 9 Wackiest Woody Allen Women

Blue Jasmine Sony Pictures Classics

As the pill-popping, Vodka-swilling title character of "Blue Jasmine," Cate Blanchett joins a long line of actresses who have played crazy in Woody Allen films. No one has created more complex, multi-faceted female roles than the New York maestro, but let's face it: these gals are never more mesmerizing than when they're screaming, shouting, and throwing a major tantrum.

To celebrate this latest wacky inclusion, here's our list of the nine nuttiest female performances in Woody Allen films. Get More »

9 Actors Who Play the Same Character in Every Movie

Redemption Lionsgate

Hang in Hollywood long enough, and you're bound to be typecast every now and then.

But for some actors, playing to type isn't just laziness or the final tremors of a fading career. Keeping their characters close to home is just what they do best, or at least what keeps the money flowing. And anyway, would you really want to see Jason Statham falling head-over-heels for Katherine Heigl in some lame romantic comedy? Neither would we. Get More »

'Blue Jasmine' Trailer: Terrible People Being Terrible

It's the most wonderful time of the year! No, we don't mean the beginning of summer, but instead the opening of Woody Season. That's right, it's time for the hype on Woody Allen's annual release to begin, starting with the trailer debut. Welcome to the world, "Blue Jasmine"!

Cate Blanchett stars in Allen's latest epic, trotting the streets of San Francisco alongside "To Rome With Love" alum Alec Baldwin (who plays her husband), Sally Hawkins (her sister), Louis C.K., Peter Sarsgaard and the usual cadre of stars who come running when the bespectacled director beckons.

UPDATED: It's true! Colin Firth will join Emma Stone to lead Woody Allen's "new, untitled comedy," according to a press release. The project will film in the south of France, making it Allen's second film in France, and his eighth in Europe.

Bon voyage, Colin!


EARLIER: Woody Allen is an interesting fellow. While most filmmakers come up with a grand idea and then find stars to play the parts, Allen seems to often do the opposite: He finds people and places that inspire him and then crafts the film around their strengths. Last week, we heard that Emma Stone was in talks to work with the bespectacled director, and now a male lead seems poised to join her, according to Deadline.

Let's all welcome Colin Firth to the Woody Club, shall we?

Bet you didn't see that one coming.

Emma Stone Muses Over Woody Allen Project

There are worse jobs in the world than being an artist's muse. Sure, the job description is a little vague — be inspiring, possibly while also acting really mysterious — but on the other hand, you also get interesting benefits like becoming immortalized on film. Try getting that next time you interview to become a Wal-Mart greeter.

So yeah, being a muse is cool, which may explain why Coming Soon is reporting that Emma Stone is currently in talks to work alongside one of cinema's most legendary muse-icians, Woody Allen. Get More »

What the Apocalypse Looks Like: 1927-2013

Oblivion Universal

Apocalyptic and dystopian stories have always intrigued us. If societal structure was to break down, the void left behind would expose the basest of human impulses. And over the last century, movies have taken a sick sort of pleasure in showing us what the worst case scenario might look like, with ominous features of the future mirroring the most pressing concerns of the present.

Seeing as how Tom Cruise's new film "Oblivion" is opening in the not-too-distant-future (April 19), we're taking a look back at pessimistic looks forward. Get More »

Supercut: Every Woody Allen Stammer From Every Woody Allen Movie

Have you ever sat around with your friends and asked, "Hey, Desmond (IMPORTANT NOTE: you have a friend name Desmond), have you ever wondered, if you added up the length of time in all of Woody Allen's movies that he stammered, exactly how long that video would be?" And then Desmond was like, "You're weird, man, I gotta go"?

Well Desmond, the joke's on you, because that video exists now, and the answer is 44 minutes and 21 seconds. Indeed, as our older step-brothers at the Huffington Post discovered, the internet wins again, as someone actually did make a supercut of every stammer — EVERY stammer — in every Woody Allen movie.

9 Actors Whose Voices Are Too Distinct For Animation

The Croods DreamWorks

Doing an animated film must be an absolute blast for an actor. Show up in your pajamas. No time in hair and makeup. Don't shave your fu manchu. All that the film's producers need is your voice — your sweet, golden, $20-million-a-picture pipes.

For some actors, however, that's a problem. It's no one's fault; in fact, it's often a testament to their on-screen success with other endeavors. But there are a certain group of thespians whose voices are just too damn distinct to hide behind a cartoon character. They might deliver a fine performance, but it just doesn't quite work because we all know their voice so well. Get More »
