WOODY ALLEN LIVENED UP “BLUE JASMINE” WITH ANDREW DICE CLAY
We never thought we’d see Andrew Dice Clay acting in a movie alongside Cate Blanchett, but Woody Allen put them together in Blue Jasmine. Cate plays a sophisticated New York woman whose Wall Street financier husband (played by Alec Baldwin) turns out to be a white collar criminal like Bernie Madoff. She has to leave everything behind and move in with her kind but cash strapped sister in San Francisco. Dice plays the rather common handyman ex husband of the sister. Clay recalled that when his manager told him Woody Allen reached out, he was in SHOCK, Clay thought “That’s the last guy I ever thought would call for me! I thought it was an April fool’s joke!” As for Woody, he was happy with the results. Maybe another comeback for the Dice Man.
