» Woody Allen casts 'the greatest' actor in new film

by Susan Wloszczyna, USA TODAY, published on May 6, 2011 - 10:25 AM

Before heading off to the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday with his new romantic comedy Midnight in Paris, Woody Allen found time for a chat with USA TODAY in his Manhattan office.

At 75, he shows no sign of slowing his pace of a movie a year. So, of course, the guy who gave us such classics as Annie Hall and Manhattan is already plotting his release for 2012.

While it has been reported as The Wrong Picture, Allen assures that is the wrong title. There isn't one yet. What is true is that Penelope Cruz, who won a 2008 supporting Oscar for his Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Ellen Page, Jesse Eisenberg and Alec Baldwin will be part of the cast of what Allen describes as "a comic picture, an out-and-out comedy" that will start shooting in Rome this summer.

But there are two others joining that already stellar lineup, he says. "You are leaving out Roberto Benigni," the Italian funny man who made a splash at the 1998 Oscars when he climbed over seatbacks in the audience and took best foreign picture and best actor for his Holocaust comedy Life Is Beautiful.

Also in the cast? "The greatest of all my favorites -- me. I'm going to be in it, too," says a smiling Allen, who has not been seen in one of his films since 2006's Scoop. "I'm still casting and I'm sure there will be some others."
