Jesse’s week of firsts
A lot of requests coming in lately for more Jesse Eisenberg.
Here he is shooting 30 Minutes Or Less in LA yesterday. It’s a comedy. He apparently plays a pizza delivery guy who gets forced by two dumbass criminals to rob a bank within half an hour. Danny McBride is one of the dumbass criminals. Of course he is. The script was actually on the infamous the Black List of screenplays and the film is being directed by Ruben Fleischer who also made Zombieland. So there’s that.
As for Jesse, well, in five short days he will receive his first Oscar nomination for Best Actor in The Social Network. There’s no doubt. He’ll follow that up four days later in New York as he hosts Saturday Night Live for the first time January 29th. Then he has to rush back to LA for the SAGs the following evening, Sunday January 30th (we’ll be liveblogging!) So those of you who are hard up for him lately will have a lot to look forward to next week.
