Usage Note in CALD2:
“Me or I?
Me is used after ‘than’, ‘as, or ‘to be’. It would be wrong or would sound very formal if you used I.

David is not as tall as me.
“Who’s there?” “It’s me.”
“Who’s there? “Ït is I.” (formal)
Sometimes me is used with another noun as the subject of a sentence, especially in informal English.

Jane and I went to the cinema yesterday.”
