Allen plays the role of Murray, who convinces his florist friend Fioravante, played by John Turturro, to become a male escort for money, and, in turn, becomes his pimp.

Woody Allen has not acted in many films not directed by him, especially not in the last twenty years or so.

Fading Gigolo, directed by Turturro, is a dramedy in which women lust for Turturro because of his old-school gentleman’s looks and manners, coupled with his gift for loving, listening, and growing his own orchids.
