The only Academy Awards that Slumdog Millionaire didn’t win were the acting awards, for which it wasn’t nominated at all. Those fortunes may soon change for one member of the cast, however. Woody Allen, who helped Penelope Cruz get her Oscar, is known for consistently pouncing upon hot new ingenues for his copious cinematic creations, and he’s now added Freida Pinto to that list. She’s been brought on board his latest film, which doesn’t have a title, a synopsis, a tagline or anything else yet. So we don’t know who she’ll be playing, but we know she’ll star alongside Josh Brolin and Anthony Hopkins.
