Miley Cyrus In Woody Allen’s First TV Series – Good Or Bad Move For Him?

External image

Woody Allen is working on his first-ever TV series and has made an unexpected move of casting Miley Cyrus for the lead role. The soon to be released Amazon comedy series doesn’t have a name yet but filming starts this March. What could be the role of Miley in the series?  Is this a good or bad move for the Oscar-winning filmmaker?

Also joining Miley in the series is comedy great Elaine May and Woody himself. It has been a while since Miley had some acting gigs as she has been focusing on her music for the past five years or so. While we last saw May in Allen’s Small Time Crooks, a crime comedy released in 2000.

Woody’s first TV series will air six half-hour episodes set in the 1960s in which he will be writing and directing all episodes.

This emerging working relationship between Woody and Miley is quite a strange one especially at this time in both of their careers. As we remember, Woody’s Irrational Man released last year was his least successful film in almost a decade in both a critical and commercial standpoint. In 2014, his career in film has been marred by allegations of sexual abuse by his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow.

While in the past years, Miley managed to completely scrape her Hannah Montana image off the face of the earth with her obscene behavior, controversial music videos and endless twerking while almost naked on live TV.

For Woody and Miley to be working together might not be the best move for their careers but it sure seems to be an interesting one. Miley, apparently a Woody fan, shared that she is “stoked” to be working with the Oscar-winning filmmaker and pop culture icon.

With much excitement, Miley shares in an Instagram post, “…next to my bed for a few years now has been this portrait of W.A. & I was looking into his eyes when I got the call to be a part of the cast and work alongside the bad a$$ Elaine May & da dude himself! 1960zzzz here I (come).”

Vin Diesel's XXX 3 Just Added An Unexpected Actress

You may have already noticed, but over the course of his career, Vin Diesel has had a way of making his passion projects magically materialize as if by sheer force of will. He may have talked his way into a Marvel movie; we didn’t expect to see another installment in the Pitch Black saga after Chronicles of Riddick, but then Riddick came to be; and he’s doing it again with xXx 3: The Return of Xander Cage, a franchise most thought was long dead. Production is slated to begin soon, and they just added an unexpected member to the cast, as …

Set in the ‘60s: Miley Cyrus to star in Woody Allen’s new Amazon show

Woody Allen’s upcoming Amazon comedy series still doesn’t have a title or a release date, but it has a few unexpected stars on its cast list. Deadline is reporting that Miley Cyrus is going to headline the show alongside Elaine May and Allen himself when shooting begins in March. Cyrus has spent the last half decade focusing on music, except for a few cameo appearances and “Saturday Night Live” gigs. May last acted in Allen’s slight 2000 crime comedy, “Small Time Crooks.” The show will span six episodes, all set in the 1960s. Allen is still writing and directing every episode. Amazon has already won awards with “Transparent,” a comedy-drama about a family dealing with a transgender father, and “Mozart in the Jungle,” about the wild offstage lives of New York classical musicians. Allen, known for his sharp-tongued wit and fascination with sexual taboos, has throughout his career worked closely with a number of actresses, including former partners Diane Keaton and Mia Farrow.

Woody Allen’s upcoming Amazon comedy series still doesn’t have a title or a release date, but it has a few unexpected stars on its cast list. Deadline is reporting that Miley Cyrus — yes, that Miley Cyrus — is going to headline the show alongside Elaine May and Allen himself when shooting begins in March. Cyrus has spent the last half-decade focusing on music save a few cameo appearances and Saturday Night Live gigs; May last acted in Allen’s slight 2000 crime comedy Small Time Crooks. Deadline also notes the show will span six episodes, all set in the 1960s. Allen is still writing and directing every episode, par for the course considering his extensive written-and-directed filmography. (He’s still planning on releasing a movie this year, one that’s set to star Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart.)

Allen and Cyrus’ nascent working relationship is coming into view at a peculiar time in each person’s career. Last year’s Irrational Man was Allen's least successful movie (from both critical and commercial perspectives) in almost a decade, and his body of work has been cast in a troubling light by sexual abuse allegations levied in 2014 by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow. Cyrus has spent the last few years wandering through the artistic wilderness, a journey that’s involved fewer peaks (remember “Wrecking Ball”?) than valleys (wanton cultural appropriation, picking fights with Nicki Minaj, musical and chemical experimentation). Working together might not rescue either person’s career, but it definitely makes for an interesting TV show — at least in theory.

Without getting into politics (the film sure doesn’t) and just looking at the film as a whole 13 HOURS is a solidly made action film that proves that with a restrictive (certainly for him) budget/adult rating (the R rating is fully earned) Michael Bay knows how to put on a show for an audience. The film tells the story of how a perfect storm of events (blame isn’t thrown around here because it’s clear this is a culmination of bad decisions) lead to a handful of independent CIA contractors (all with years of military experience) essentially having a “battle of the Alamo” at a classified (it technically doesn’t exist) US Diplomatic Compound in Benghazi, Libya when all hell breaks loose in an incredibly short period of time.  

The actors are really solid here with John Krasinski (great if unexpected casting), James Badge Dale and Pablo Schreiber really standing out. The best thing about this film when comparing to other recent films about this era of war is that they at least somewhat attempt to make each soldier an individual (I say somewhat because it’s not like it’s the greatest or most original you’ve ever seen but the attempt at it is welcomed). Sure, they still all look and talk the exact same but here (unlike in Lone Survivor or American Sniper) each person is given their own backstory/reasons/motivations and as minimum as that might be at least it’s the thought that counts (it’s been too long since we’ve seen the semblance of that from war films). 

As always with Michael Bay films the man KNOWS how to shoot action and how to stage a battle sequence (also his military fetishism has never been greater). In the last several years he’s calmed down (a bit, especially for him) and he allows you to take in the geography of the situation which in turn allows for the gunfights (there are dozens) to be shown clearly/you know exactly what/how something is about to unfold. There are also several great car chases and an incredible house fire with some really amazing camera work on display. Most of his glossy slickness/tropes aren’t on display here (this film is really raw/dirty) and at the very least he doesn’t allow the film to become Call of Duty (though it does start out that way). He has no problems showing you that these men aren’t superheroes (incredibly brave but not superheroes) and the real gravity of the situation. To quote Michael Bay films themselves when “shit gets real” the violence is really felt and while gruesome (I mean GRUESOME) it all feels shockingly real. 

13 HOURS overall is a solid film. It’s one of the better (if not best) ones I’ve seen in recent memory but still doesn’t get anywhere near the holy grail of war films. The cast is strong and as I said since they are given actual characters so when you get downtime in the film they can talk about fears, families and why they continue to do what they do even if it’s in a place they don’t care about for reasons they don’t understand (which feels truthful). It’s brutal at times but it all feels honest (at least in terms of the movie, the reality of the situation is an entirely different thing). Whatever preconceived notions you have about this film or Michael Bay as a whole believe me, he’ll exceed your expectations here. This film is most certainly worth your time.
