Jesse Eisenberg could pick and choose what he wanted to do after that one. Like a few actors — Kevin Spacey comes to mind — he suggests intelligence and cunning, which kind of rules out him ever playing stupid (Spacey has tried, and failed at that). And he’s aged out of the naive and innocent thing he did so well in his youth (“Zombieland” was his last lovelorn young guy role, unless you count the evil genius Zuckerberg).
“Now You See Me” looks like an all-star sleeper this summer, something to pull us in when we take a breather from comic book movies.
Questions for Jesse? I’m always looking for suggestions, and I’m all ears. Comment below.
