Louis C.K. had to restrain himself when Woody Allen asked him to star opposite him in a buddy comedy

It’s hard to imagine wanting to pay $13.50 to watch two neurotic friends enjoy each others’ company. But when those friends are played by Woody Allen and Louis C.K? Well that’s a completely different story. Allen, who cast C.K in a bit role in Blue Jasmine (coming to theaters July 26), expressed interest in doing a film with Louis (who, of course, was equally excited about the prospect). In an interview with The New York Times, C.K describes that fateful conversation like this:

…he pulled me aside and he said, ‘Listen, I wanted to ask you if you’d be interested in something. What if we were in a movie together, you and me?’ I said, ‘Of course I’d love to do that.’ And he said, ‘Could you do it next summer?’ which is now, and I said, ‘Sure, no problem.’ I was restraining myself.

As of now, Allen has no specific story in mind. Post your ideas in the comments section and maybe, just maybe, he’ll see them and think you’re a genius.
