Naomi Watts and Freida Pinto, the cutie from Slumdog Millionaire, have joined Anthony Hopkins and Brand in the cast of Woody Allen's yet-untitled new film:

Freida Pinto will follow up her performance in the Oscar-winning "Slumdog Millionaire" with a role in Woody Allen's latest project.

This year's Cinderella at the Oscar ball will join the long list of Allen's muses as she takes on the ingenue role in the helmer's still-untitled pic.

Naomi Watts has also signed on to star in the film, joining the already-announced Josh Brolin and Anthony Hopkins.

I imagine hanging out with Woody Allen being a lot like an '80s sitcom, where Woody is like the Kirk Cameron from Growing Pains. We go to the Oscars, he catches a glimpse of Freida Pinto:

"Who is that!"

"Oh, she's in Slumdog Millionaire. Really young; way out of your league, man."

"She's beautiful. I've got to find a way to get her in my next movie!"

Then we spent the next twenty minutes scheming how to pull it off before getting caught by her dad, and people complain that the same basic episode aired a few years ago with Scarlett Johansson.
