Jessie Eisenberg Pans Comic-Con, Calls Experience ‘Some Kind Of Genocide’ | Film News
Jessie Eisenberg attended the huge San Diego Comic-Con last weekend to show-off and plug his role as Lex Luther in Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but unfortunately, the star did not enjoy the event. The Academy Award nominee said, “it is like being screamed at by thousands of people”. The actor went on to comment and assess his experience, “I don’t know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide. I can’t think of anything that’s equivalent”.
Eisenberg was doing red carpet press for the Los Angeles premiere of his latest release, The End of the Tour, when he spoke to the Associated Press. In the upcoming film directed by James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now), Eisenberg depicts journalist David Lipsky, who profiled acclaimed author David Foster Wallace – portrayed by Jason Segel. The film shortly follows the publication of Wallace’s hugely successful novel, Infinite Jest.
