MEN IN BLACK: Dolce and Gabbana are back on film, and this time it’s safe to say that “fathers” Stefano and Domenico are cast against type. Adding to a star-studded cast that includes Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Judi Dench, Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman, Penélope Cruz, Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson and Sophia Loren, the film “Nine,” directed by Rob Marshall, will feature a cameo with Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce playing the roles of priests. The musical film, based on the 1982 Broadway musical, inspired by Federico Fellini’s “8 1/2,” is due out at the end of November.

The designers were captured by paparazzi last week in Rome during an in-between-scenes break, clad in long black ecclesiastical gowns. The duo are no newcomers to movie sets: They both acted in the 1995 “L’Uomo delle stelle” (The Star Maker), which was directed by Giuseppe Tornatore and was nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Foreign Film category. Their characters were quite a stretch from their real life roles, with Domenico playing a farmer and Stefano playing a photographer, though maybe not quite the role reversal their new priestly personas require.
