Louis C.K. and Andrew Dice Clay Join Woody Allen’s Latest
Woody Allen is racking up an impressive cast list for his latest film, an untitled comedy set to shoot in San Francisco and New York over the summer. The latest names added to the roster: Comedians Louis C.K. and Andrew Dice Clay.
We’ll wait here while you read that last one again. Done? Yeah, we’re confused, too.
Andrew Dice Clay? The guy whose entire schtick in the 80s and 90s was built on slicked-back, too-cool, casual misogyny and dirty nursery rhymes? Yes, that guy.
Deadline reports that both comedians have been tapped to join Woody Allen’s latest ensemble.
Dice Clay was most recently seen in an arc on the now (thankfully) ended HBO series ‘Entourage,’ while C.K. is preparing to enter his third season of his FX hit show ‘Louie.’
The two will join previously announced names like Alec Badlwin, Bobby Cannavale, Cate Blanchett, Michael Emerson, and Peter Sarsgaard. That’s one hell of a cast, but Dice Clay? One of these names is not like the other. Yet, if anyone can polish up something old and make it new again, it’s Allen. We’re interested to see what he’ll bring out of this old comedian.
Nothing else is known about Allen’s latest film as of yet, including plot details or a title. Allen’s last release was the Academy Award nominated ‘Midnight in Paris,’ followed by ‘To Rome With Love,’ which hits theaters June 22.
