Supercut: Actors in Woody Allen movies before they were famous

By 08.20.13

Woody Allen has launched more actors’ careers than you know. This amazing supercut shows just how many celebrities got their big break from appearing in a Woody Allen movie. “Hey mom, I got the Woody Allen movie!”

The question is, was he great at spotting talent, does he make people better actors, or did casting directors just like to cherry-pick from a recent popular movie? I would be willing to guess it’s a combination of all three. None-the-less, it’s impressive that one director could truly launch so many acting careers.

Bananas (1971)
Annie Hall (1977)
Stardust Memories (1980)
