As John Turturro puts it, “I am not a beautiful man.” And yet in his latest writing and directing effort “Fading Gigolo,” the “Transformers” star plays Fioravante, an ordinary bookseller-turned-veritable Don Juan whose sexual prowess becomes a sought-after commodity among women including the beautiful Dr. Parker (Sharon Stone) and her girlfriend Selima (Sofia Vergara).
Of course, every great gigolo needs a great “manager,” and in that capacity Fioravante has his trusted friend Murray (Woody Allen) to both offer encouragement (“You have a certain kind of sex appeal”) and to handle the money side of things (Allen’s pimp name? “Dan Bongo.”). But can their business empire survive the test of true love?
Check out the latest trailer for the film above, then let us know whether you’ll be seeing it in the comments.
“Fading Gigolo” hits theaters on April 18.
