Woody Allen Casts Woody Allen

Joining Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, Alec Baldwin, Penélope Cruz, and Roberto Benigni in Woody Allen's upcoming Rome-set comedy: Woody Allen. He tells USA Today that the flick's latest addition is "The greatest of all my favorites — me. I'm going to be in it, too. I'm still casting and I'm sure there will be some others." (Also, Allen says the movie is still untitled, and not, as has been reported, called The Wrong Picture.) This will be Allen's first onscreen appearance since 2006's Scoop, also known as "that movie where Scarlett Johansson played a college journalism student with glasses." [USAT]
