John Turturro on being pimped out by Woody Allen

'Rocky' and "Bullets Over Broadway" would seem to have nothing in common, but the vastly different films have now been turned into stage musicals this season, and suddenly they make strange bedfellows, if not legit twins.

Fading Gigolo

This vulgar and outlandish locker-room tale is written, directed, and performed by John Turturro with such sincerity, relish, heart, and good humor that it almost sneaks through the bullshit filter.
