Woody Allen: 'I'd cast Michelle Obama'

Filmmaker Woody Allen isn’t content to hire only actresses for his movies, he wants political figures as well.

Allen cast France's first lady Carla Bruni in a recent project, and USA Today reports that he’d like to give FLOTUS Michelle Obama a role, too.

"If I was in a room with Michelle Obama, and I thought she was right for a part, I wouldn't hesitate to ask her," Woody told the British television program “Daybreak.” No audition needed!

Allen, 75, recalled that he was having dinner with French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife when he decided to cast Bruni.

Carla Bruni appeared in Allen’s latest film, “Midnight in Paris,” as a museum tour guide.

    I don't care about a celebrity's personal life because I have a life of my own. You can too if you think about it. If dumping on people is your idea of a lifestyle, it says far worse things about you than it does about your intended target.

      Morally speaking, he lost all respect when he married his stepdaughter. In my book that's about as close to incest you can get and get away with it.

    If she would have time to do something like that i think she would be great at it however she already has alot on her plate an being a mother an presidents wife is already enough. I can see her in movies that have a positive message that young people would watch.

      Whether it's a good idea or not, it seems that Michelle's calendar will be free after Nov 2012...should she decide to take up the offer.

    Unless she's cast as the first lady I don't think she'd consider it,because what few blacks he's had in his movies were stereotypical,and also he manages to knock out the city that never sleeps.

    The real question is... why would Michelle Obama want to be in a movie written by an over-pessimistic fatalist who either annoys or bores his audience for 2 hours.

    Woody Allen is a great director. Whatever choices he makes, the results speak for themselves. For those of you posing as Indians; it is obvious you are fakes. The typical Indian has much better command of proper English (written or verbal) than you. You can't hide your bigotry behind this crap.

      Maybe she's a "pow wow" Indian and not an India-Indian?! You're right. Many India-Indians I've met has more brains (including myself) than most of us. Not sure if it's because they have the drive for education, a better life or what.

      Oh, sorry. But that Indian lady got me going. I can't stand Michelle Obama and I wouldn't cast her in the pre-school Christmas pageant let alone a Woody Allen movie. Wood-call Diane Keaton.
