It’s hard to decide what seems more unlikely: Woody Allen playing a pimp, or Woody Allen starring in someone else’s film.

Believe it or not, in “Fading Gigolo,” the legendary Jewish director does both. John Turturro wrote and directed the film, in which Allen plays a bookseller who picks up some work pimping out Turturro’s character. Clients include Sharon Stone and Sofia Vergara, two women looking for a threesome.

That seemed juicy enough until we saw the third client featured prominently in the trailer, who appears to be… Hasidic. Thanks to Tablet for confirming that the movie does, in fact, have “A Stranger Among Us” meets “Hung” thing going on.
