They don’t call him Academy Award winner Sir Anthony Hopkins for nothing. We know Sir Anthony transforms himself into any character on screen or stage, but he can do anybody in real life too. At the press junket for Woody Allen’s latest movie, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, the actor launched into a dead on Woody Allen impression. Hopkins starts describing the direction Allen gives after a take. About 12 seconds in, he miraculously goes from Sir Anthony to Woody Allen.

Stroke or physical abuse?
Oh man, Woody Allen is really Woody Allening it up in the trailer for You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. The film stars Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Freida Pinto, Antonio Banderas, Lucy Punch, and Gemma Jones all unhappily shuffling through life, falling in and out of love, as an omniscient narrator delivers the subtext.
It could be a sequel to Vicky Christina Barcelona with the unfortunate absence of Scarlett Johansson's pouty lips. Allen even managed to make Brolin a schlubby writer with self-esteem issues. Put down that hammer, Woody, you're breaking too much new ground!
You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger plops down into theaters September 22, 2010.
