I'm not thrilled with he choice , but last night I saw the social network ... I'm interested to see how he portrays lex
batz11 - 2/7/2014, 5:51 AM
I've never wanted to punch somebody more than that dude...well, except the real Eisenberg, I'd slap his fast talkin' smarmy bitch self too...



Ok, I chuckled a tad, haha

All he needed to do was hunch his back and he would've nailed it.
supermarioworldE - 2/7/2014, 5:56 AM
Yeah, that's basically it. I can't recall an Eisenberg performance that didn't annoy me.
Pedrito - 2/7/2014, 5:58 AM
Too soon. We're still hurting.

Funny Or Die

Like where do we bury the corpse? WTF this I just watch. I wish I could get my less than 2 minutes back (yeah I didn't finished it). It was that bad.
loki668 - 2/7/2014, 6:20 AM
I'll reserve judgement until I see a trailer or a teaser. ANYTHING that gives me an idea of where they're going with this film. Until then, there's just nothing much to go on. On a related note, SHOW US THE GODDAMNED BATMAN SUIT ALREADY!!!!!!!!!

And YOU sir are in the minority.

I'm not huge on awards, but this much I know... actors that "annoy" the majority of a film's viewing public don't get nominated for "Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role" by various award associations.

It is likely that Jesse' Lex will be loved by mainstream viewers, and that is more than good enough for WB.
BestAtWhatIDo - 2/7/2014, 6:27 AM
That was actually very funny. I liked the Jesse Eisenberg Bane.
mgeoff88 - 2/7/2014, 6:40 AM
The stuff about Now You See Me was funny.

Casting director: Wouldn't you call the sequel "Now You Don't?"

"Jesse Eisenberg": *blank stare*

Everything else wasn't.

@batz I don't think I've seen a person with such chapped lips in recent memory. I watched this video on my phone, and I could even notice it.

His next skit should be playing the spokesperson for the ChapStick company. ;P
savag3410 - 2/7/2014, 6:57 AM
That was funny
MarkV - 2/7/2014, 7:07 AM
Grif doesn't "enjoy."
shangho - 2/7/2014, 7:15 AM
He sounds JUST like Eisenberg!Which is part of the reason he will suck.The other part is that he's an arrogant tool in every role he plays,I wonder why?Hmmmmm........
Rokyn - 2/7/2014, 7:22 AM

Rokyn - 2/7/2014, 7:24 AM
I'm going Pro-Marvel, this is a shipwreck already!

Abandon ship gentlemen while you can! Abandon ship!
QuestiontheAnswer - 2/7/2014, 7:26 AM
So we mustn't watch the movie because they casted an Oscar-nominated actor?
blkchi - 2/7/2014, 7:31 AM
Wasted 10 min adding flash to this crap phone to watch a lame imitation of mr. zombieland..need my laptop and car..anyway jessie pretty bland hope he can pull it off
Rokyn - 2/7/2014, 7:35 AM
1to10 got banned again? What he do? Harassing Marvel threads? I actually liked him, he really believed in his cause and he was our DC version of Intruder/Sage. He'll come back soon.
GuardianAngel - 2/7/2014, 7:46 AM
Spot on!

By the way, why do people need to pick sides? I'm not that thrilled for this trainwreck, but I'm still a DC fan.

@Rokyn

If only you were this passionate about things that actually matter in the world.

@ Gusto

I didn't figure you had a no no place...just a yes yes place.
Spidey10 - 2/7/2014, 8:22 AM
The MAC and 1to10 battles have come to an end and all I can say is im glad that I was a witness to such a legendary rivalry
Spidey10 - 2/7/2014, 8:23 AM
*slow clap leading to applause*
supermarioworldE - 2/7/2014, 8:36 AM
@soforizo

Woody Allen comes to mind. Though it also depends on the role.
third3ye - 2/7/2014, 9:09 AM
Awesome impression.
Arrowhead77 - 2/7/2014, 9:10 AM
Goodbye 1to10, you will be missed! Especially all the bitching between you and MAC!
Moviefanatic14 - 2/7/2014, 9:16 AM
Eisenburg was good in zombieland, but still he's to skinny young and twitchy for lex
Dandy - 2/7/2014, 9:21 AM
@QuestionTheAnswer

Uh...Jonah Hill has been nominated for an Oscar..twice! Would you like him to play Ras Al Ghul?


Just because someone has been nominated for an award does not mean they are instantly perfect for every part.
DrunkenPirateNukem - 2/7/2014, 9:23 AM
WTF was that??...really so original


next please..



at least try next time...
ALmight - 2/7/2014, 9:43 AM
Again, great actor, but I'm still in "really?" mode.
poop23 - 2/7/2014, 10:28 AM
But seriously though, at this point Afflec doesn't seem so bad compared to this casting choice. This is justice league, Its going to be DC's most important set of films, they should be trying to get the characters right instead of just doing an adaption of the character that they just felt like going with
aresww3 - 2/7/2014, 11:57 AM
You guys laugh but this is not that far off from how he will play it.
