Bobby Cannavale On Board For Woody Allen's Next Film
Even if you don't know Bobby Cannavale by name, you've undoubtedly seen him steal a scene. The character actor and Broadway veteran, with a loud voice and a brash attitude, has done stints on TV shows like Nurse Jackie, Will & Grace and Six Feet Under, and popped up in supporting roles in the likes of Win Win, The Other Guys and even Snakes on a Plane. He's the kind of New York theater actor who might get stopped on the street on Broadway, which in a way makes him perfect to join the cast of the new film from another even bigger New York legend, Woody Allen.
According to Deadline, Cannavale is joining the cast of Allen's next film, which already includes Cate Blanchett, Bradley Cooper and Alec Baldwin. And that's really pretty much all we know-- previous reports have said that Allen will shoot the new film in San Francisco and New York, but true to form he's not revealing much about it, and probably won't until the cast gets more rounded out. He's currently coming off the biggest financial success of his career, Midnight in Paris, and is preparing this summer to release To Rome With Love, which opens June 22. It's got another typical Allen star-studded cast-- Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, Penelope Cruz, Alison Pill, Greta Gerwig, and even Allen himself are all part of the cast.
As for Cannavale, you can also expect to see him in the upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic Lovelace, starring Amanda Seyfried, as well as the upcoming season of Boardwalk Empire, which I personally can't wait to see.
