In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Broadway and big screen star Bobby Cannavale talked about working with Cameron Diaz and Jamie Foxx on Will Gluck's ANNIE movie remake, in which he plays an advisor to Daddy Warbucks (Foxx) -- a part that will be unfamiliar to fans of the stage musical or the 1982 film.

"I've always wanted to do a musical," he told the magazine. "I'd been rehearsing this big dance scene with Cameron Diaz since September and we finally shot it a couple weeks ago. Every film I try to do something that I've never done before. It's tough in this business, you know? People see you do something they like and then they just want to see you do it over and over again. That's why I did this movie."

Commenting on Jamie Foxx, Cannavale added: "Listen, Jamie Foxx could run for mayor if he felt like it. He's the funniest guy -- that guy can mimic anybody."

The new adaptation of ANNIE is currently filming in New York City. Starring Quvenzhane Wallis in the role of America's favorite orphan and Diaz as cruel Orphan patron Miss Hannigan, the film is set to be released on December 19th. Rose Byrne is also in the cast.

ANNIE features a script recently revised by Emma Thompson and Aline Brosh McKenna. Director Gluck will also serve as a producer on the film along with James Lassiter, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, Shawn Carter aka Jay Z, Jay Brown and Tyran Smith.
