Miley Cyrus Can Thank “Hannah Montana” For New Woody Allen Role

Miley CyrusCritically-acclaimed director Woody Allen recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter and revealed what made him cast Miley Cyrus for his upcoming Amazon series.

“I noticed years ago that my kids would be watching ‘Hannah Montana.’ And I would say: ‘Who is that girl? She’s got such a good delivery. You know, she snaps those lines off so well,”‘ he said. The director added that after seeing a clip of her “Saturday Night Live” performance, he believed in her talent.

“She came in and we chatted for a few minutes — a perfunctory chat, just getting to know the person,” he said. “But I wanted to hire her. I didn’t need that five minutes of silly chat.”

At the time of the interview, Woody claimed the series, which has yet to be titled, was just about finished.

Are you excited for Miley’s return to acting?
