Cavill joins Allen film


Henry Cavill has joined the cast of Woody Allen's untitled romantic comedy, which has started production in Queens.

Cavill, known for his role as Charles Brandon, the Duke of Suffolk, on Showtime's "The Tudors," plays a man who is set up with Evan Rachel Wood's character by her mother. Larry David also stars as Wood's love interest.

The script, penned by Allen, is being kept under wraps. Allen also is co-starring and directing the Wild Bunch-funded film. His sister, Letty Aronson, and Stephen Tenenbaum are producing.

Cavill's film credits include "Stardust," "Tristan & Isolde" and "The Count of Monte Cristo."

The second season of "Tudors" begins March 30 on Showtime.

He is repped by WMA in the U.S. and United Agents in the U.K
