Woody Allen Surrogates is a supercut of actors 'playing' Woody Allen in Woody Allen films. Over the past several years, the protagonists in the iconic director's films have been in some respect an embodiment of the notoriously neurotic director's one-of-a-kind personality. No matter how diverse the subject matter in his films, Woody Allen's lead males have several common characteristics; incredibly witty and a little bit off their rocker, they embody celebrated, yet commonly critiqued traits of the director himself.

This short film from the folks at FilmDrunk divides the three tolken Allen traits: stammering, intellectual profession and a highbrow reference. These themes are enacted by each of the actors who are shown int he short from Larry David to Will Farrell, John Cusack and even Rebecca Hall.
