Woody Allen adds Pinto and others to cast of latest film

freidapintoAfter starring in the sleeper-hit of 2008 and taking the awards circuit by storm, what do you think former model-turned actress Freida Pinto would do for her next project?

Why, star in a film directed by Woody Allen, of course!

Mere hours after the stragglers came in from celebrating at the Oscars-after parties last week, Variety reported that the Slumdog Millionaire star would take the ingenue role in Woody Allen’s next unnamed ensemble picture.

Also joining the cast will be Naomi Watts, and announced later that week, Antonio Banderas, who will join previously announced actors Josh Brolin and Anthony Hopkins.

Hell of a sophomore effort by Pinto and her agents. Let’s hope that she continues to make good acting choices (I’m looking at you, Mira Sorvino).
