Jesse Eisenberg Talks Lex Luthor; Jokes That He's Not Allowed To Say Anything For 6 Years

During promotion for his latest film, Rio 2, Jesse Eisenberg was asked if we'll see him shave his head as Lex Luthor for Warner Bros. Batman/Superman. The actor responded with a complete exaggeration, trying to dodge the question -- which seemingly worked. Hit the Jump!

When asked if he was to shave his head for DC's Batman/Superman film, The Social Network actor joked "Oh, I'm not allowed to say anything about anything for the next six years, I haven't called my mom back in months.

I think he MIGHT have been exaggerating about the 6 years thing...just a tad like.
Cap1 - 3/25/2014, 2:30 PM
Can anybody tell me what he says? Doesn't work in the UK

But the title is pretty much all the information I actually need.

He will own the role. I can't wait to see him in it. So unexpected but so awesome.

Why is Catwoman sitting next to Lex Luthor?
Pasto - 3/25/2014, 2:33 PM
It started with him saying some racist remarks about The Rock. He said he never wanted to be in a film with a person of color. Then he proceeded to remove his shirt whilst chanting 'WE ARE INFINITE!' Then after that he sexually assaulted the interviewer by grabbing his neck and pinching it.

MrCBM56 - 3/25/2014, 2:33 PM

DaVinci31 - 3/25/2014, 2:34 PM
Cool as a Cucumber.

"Haven't called my mom back in months"

Dinotron - 3/25/2014, 2:35 PM
So is he saying the BvS got delayed to 6 years now?
JoeMomma29 - 3/25/2014, 2:36 PM
That was actually pretty funny when he said he cannot talk about it for the next six years.

JoeMomma29 - 3/25/2014, 2:38 PM
Everyone can makes jokes about this dude, heck even I am not sold on him being Lex but something tells me Zack saw something in maybe some test reels or audition tapes.
MrCBM56 - 3/25/2014, 2:38 PM
I hope he doesn't start off directly with a shave head. Make it Happen later in the film.
JoeMomma29 - 3/25/2014, 2:38 PM
@ ShadowPimp

I am sure he was just joking around or maybe you are right and he is locked in for the next six years. More than likely he is just joking around.
Pasto - 3/25/2014, 2:39 PM
I dunno why but that pic is funny.
MrCBM56 - 3/25/2014, 2:40 PM
Watching the video, I can't see why people say he looks like a child. He actually sounds and look mature. It's really just the hairstyle. And if he can just build a bit more mass....

Still love this casting.
DaVinci31 - 3/25/2014, 2:41 PM
Dude, TLJ should totally be the next Scrooge.
themidnightking - 3/25/2014, 2:42 PM
Poor Leo...

Jesse Eisenberg DOESN'T Talk Lex Luthor.

There, fixed the title for you.
Starfox - 3/25/2014, 2:44 PM
He will own it! I never doubted Zack's Casting. I may have doubted the screenwriter though, but I think we're good now.
Batman52 - 3/25/2014, 2:45 PM
Jessie Eisenburg was just joking you see he's just trying to not say anything.
JoeMomma29 - 3/25/2014, 2:45 PM
@ ShadowPimp

Awwww! Well of course it will be a few years till a full blown JL movie heck I would be worried if we got one right after MOS, unless they are doing the movies back to back.
DaVinci31 - 3/25/2014, 2:51 PM

JoeMomma29 - 3/25/2014, 2:53 PM
