Banderas and Brolin Both Playing Woody Allen?

The last we heard, Josh Brolin was starring as the nebbishy Woody Allen character in Allen’s upcoming You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, which premieres at Cannes next month (“I play a failed writer who is … Woody Allen,” he told the Times in March.) In the first released clip from the movie, though, Antonio Banderas plays a guy who nervously attempts to ask out Naomi Watts in such a way that suggests that he, too, is trying to act like Woody (note all the shrugging). Did both actors think that their character was the movie’s Allen stand-in? Why didn’t Woody say something? Anthony Hopkins is in this thing, too. We can’t wait to see his Woody Allen impression!
