Woody Allen will play a pimp who irks his Chasidic neighbors in a movie directed by John Turturro.
Allen is set to co-star in the “Fading Gigolo” along with Turturro and Sharon Stone, Variety reported Tuesday.
Turturro and Allen will play friends who spark the suspicions of their Chasidic neighbors when they launch a gigolo business. In the film, Allen serves as Turturro’s pimp.
Allen, who recently won an Academy Award for screenwriting for “Midnight in Paris,” rarely appears in other directors’ movies. According to Variety, he last appeared in another filmmaker’s movie in 2000 with a role in the comedy ““Picking Up the Pieces” and an uncredited cameo in “Company Man.”
