Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin and Andrew Dice Clay in new photos from Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine
Woody Allen is a hit or miss kind of director for me, but he always gets a very talented cast with some strong strong performances. BLUE JASMINE (click the link to watch the trailer) is beginning to like it might be another strong turn for the writer/director and possibly another Oscar nomination for Oscar winner Cate Blanchett. A few more photos have been released courtesy of Entertainment Weekly and I think the most surprising thing about the film so far is the inspired casting of current comedian Louis C.K. and once famous comedian Andrew Dice Clay. BLUE JASMINE stars Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Louis C.K., Bobby Cannavale, Andrew Dice Clay, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard and Michael Stuhlbarg. The Woody Allen directed film hits theaters on July 26th. (EW)
BLUE JASMINE official synopsis: After everything in her life falls to pieces, including her marriage to wealthy businessman Hal (Alec Baldwin), elegant New York socialite Jasmine (Cate Blanchett), moves into her sister Ginger’s (Sally Hawkins) modest apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together again.
