'Fading Gigolo' Trailer: Woody Allen Knows The Part He's Playing In John Turturro's New Film

John Turturro's "Fading Gigolo" is that rare thing: A movie starring Woody Allen that was neither written nor directed by Allen himself. (Turturro handled both of those duties.) "I've always been open to acting in other people's films, but no one has ever asked me to be in their films, only two or three times in 30 years," Allen said in an interview with Yahoo last year. "When John Turturro asked me to be in 'Fading Gigolo,' I said sure." And why not? Allen plays a pimp (yes) in the film, and lands a surfeit of rapid-fire one-liners in new "Fading Gigolo" trailer. Turturro, Sharon Stone and Sofia Vergara all co-star, but it's this Woody guy that might go places.

"Finding Gigolo" debuts at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. There is no U.S. release date just yet.
