Miley Cyrus, Elaine May Among Cast in Woody Allen’s 6 Part Amazon Series


I told you last week that Woody Allen‘s six part Amazon series was casting for supporting players. Woody had said last summer he was “sorry” he’d agreed to do the project and wondered how he’d do it. Well, he’s done it. He starts shooting next month.

Now comes news that Woody will be in the show, as well as the great comic actress-writer-director Elaine May. But also joining her will be Miley Cyrus in her first real acting role since “Hannah Montana.” Somehow this all makes sense. Miley seems like she’s a natural Woody character.

The six half hour episodes will shoot in New York. More to come soon….
