Woody’s Wooden Surrogates

Just talking about this on Saturday w/r/t Owen Wilson. Why does Woody direct his actors to adopt his speech and mannerisms? As Christian Bale would say, it’s fucking distracting. Ironically, the absolute worst at this is Larry David; ironic because he’s probably the closest to Woody IRL. He’s just the worst actor of the bunch. And Jason Biggs? Please. John Cusack probably comes off best, but maybe that’s because Bullets Over Broadway is a favorite.

    I think it’s just impossible to be working on a Woody Allen movie and resist the urge to imitate him on camera.
