Depending on your source, Woody Allen is either considering or has already committed to his first onscreen role in six years: playing a Hasidic pimp.

The prospective role would be in “Fading Gigolo,” a comedy written and directed by John Turturro, a regular in Coen Brothers movies such as “Barton Fink,” “O Brother Where Art Thou” and “The Big Lewboski.”

The new film would star Allen and Turturro as Hasids in need of quick cash who enter the sex trade. In a bit of casting that sounds like wishful thinking to us, two of their clients will be played by Sofia Vergara (the rather, um, voluptuous Colombian mom on “Modern Family”) and Sharon Stone.

While Allen’s been as busy as ever behind the camera in recent years — winning an Oscar last month for his “Midnight in Paris” screenplay — he hasn’t acted since filming “Scoop” in 2006.
