You're sure this isn't a "Be careful what you wish for..." moment?

OH my god yes. My life would be immeasurebly more dull if it weren't for the awesomeness of patrica clarkson.

Well, that depends on what you mean by "for her." Do you mean a lead? Woody's best characters have always been supporting players (Dianne Wiest, Judy Davis, Elaine Stritch, Penelope Cruz, Maureen Stapleton, Mira Sorvino, Anjelica Huston), aside from a few Diane Keaton performances (mainly, "Annie Hall" and "Manhattan") and Mia in "The Purple Rose of Cairo." I would be just fine if she simply became his next Wiest.

Kurtis O said...

Yeah, right. She's too old for him.

taci said...

She's not his type. She's way too normal to be suitable dramatic material.

Patricia Clarkson, Sigourney Weaver and Annette Bening. Alana [or Insert Name] and Her Sisters.

You know you want to see it. It'll the greatest moment of his career.

John said...

Kurtis - Bingo!

I think Allen should just start working harder on his movies. Being prolific means nothing. Being a perfectionist is more important.

Don't you mean "write a movie *worthy* of her"?

Urey said...

I'd be fine with her getting a nod for "Whatever Works."

It makes me feel like watching the movie again.

BeRightBack - I was thinking the same thing. :)

Oh Patty C., when will that day come when your stardom goes supernova and the entire planet is aware of what a gifted/funny/gorgeous/brave actress you are? When?!

steve said...

yeah - a great understated actress

He's been stuck with the bimbos for too long. If he wrote for her, he will go back to the smart, quirky woman of his roots. And I hope he does.

That would be great, actually.

People should watch out for her in Cairo Time, which premieres at TIFF this year. It's not by Woody Allen, but apparently it was written with her in mind!
