It turned out a bit of a surprise to find actor John Turturro in this official movie trailer of “Fading Gigolo” (considering the title alone). But it could shock more fans to discover Woody Allen playing the pimp role in this film.
The movie plot revolves around Fioravante, the character played by Turturro who takes on the journey of becoming a professional gigolo so as to make money and help out his friend Murray, played by Allen. The team up eventually find themselves crossing the wild complications of money and love combined.
Directed by John Turturro, “Fading Gigolo” also stars Vanessa Paradis, Live Schreiber, Sharon Stone, and Sofia Vergara among many others. It was released on a limited run on April 18, 2014.
