Not content to let stars Ellen Page and Jesse Eisenberg have all the fun, Woody Allen has cast himself alongside the leads in his latest film, The Wrong Picture. This may be a strategic move on Allens part he is reportedly wooing Italian actor Roberto Benigni but we doubt it. Allen is rather a fan of his own work, and described the newest member of the cast as the greatest of all my favourites me.
Allen hasnt starred in one of his own movies since 2006′s Scoop, which starred Hugh Jackman and Scarlett Johansson. Theres no word yet on the role Allen will play in the film, also starring Alec Baldwin and Penelope Cruz, or on the direction the plot will take. But with Allen both in front of and behind the camera, you can at least be assured that his brand of neuroses will be on full display.
