If another term in the White House doesn’t happen, First Lady Michelle Obama might have a fallback: Woody Allen says he “wouldn’t hesitate to ask her” to be in one of his movies. He’s actually done it before: Allen cast France’s First Lady, Carla Bruni, as a museum tour guide in ‘Midnight in Paris.’ Allen told the British television program Daybreak that he made the decision to cast Bruni on a whim while having dinner with her and husband Nicolas Sarkozy, and if fate threw him together with Michelle Obama, he’d happily make her the same offer.
“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,” Allen said.
Of course, as the The AV Club points out, “he’d have to write a black female character that isn’t a maid or prostitute.” Zing!
