Woody Allen has been struggling to find a proper surrogate for years now. Jason Biggs, Josh Brolin, and even Will Ferrell have all tried, only to miss the mark in one way or another. And it looks like Woody agrees, since he recently told USA Today that he’s casting himself in his latest movie. No title or plot yet, except the hint that the rumored title The Wrong Picture is, well, wrong.

This is the same movie that also stars Ellen Page, Jesse Eisenberg, Alec Baldwin, and Roberto Benigni, so the chance of laffs are high, I’d say. For those keeping track, this will be Woody Allen‘s first appearance on camera since 2006′s Scoop, which I, and I alone, liked.

Woody Allen‘s newest film, The Wrong Picture, despite being set in Italy, appears to be suffering from a dearth of Italian actors. Now this could be remedied by getting the casting director to sift through hundreds of resumes, headshots, and auditions, or it could simply be resolved by getting the loudest, most ridiculous Italian stereotype in the world to appear in the film.

Roberto Benigni: That’s your cue.

The writer/director who won an Academy Award for 1997′s Life is Beautiful and ruined Pinocchio for the four people who saw his version is said to be close to appearing in Woody Allen’s latest. He would join Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Penolope Cruz, and Ellen Page in roaming the streets of Italy and talking about white-people problems. The film is being dubbed a “Rome-com,” which is just the type of joke that Woody Allen fans will love and normal people will hate.

Benigni has been off Americans’ radar since a brief appearance in in Jim Jarmusch’s Coffee and Cigarettes. Unless you consider appearances in Jim Jarmusch and Woody Allen films as keeping the “off the radar” streak alive. Which I do. (Deadline)
