dedicated to the lovely and talented duo, joseph gordon-levitt and ellen page.
How do you decide who you want to appear in your films?
Woody Allen: Some I know already, and I think, “Ellen Page would be great for this part.” Some I don’t have any idea of. Since I began [making movies], I have had the same casting director, Juliet Taylor, and she reads the script and generally what she does is give a whole lot of suggestions for each role. Some I’ve heard of, like Brad Pitt or something. Others I have never heard of. We talk about each one as a possibility. The ones I have never heard of she shows me on tape. And then we go back and forth and decide to go after that person. It could be a known person or an unknown person. And either we get them or we don’t.
