The Future is now for the talented Jesse Eisenberg

user
by Ron Gilbert In September 2005 I first met Jesse when he was co-starring in a production of Orphans written by Lyle Kessler and directed by Ulu Grosbard with Al Pacino in the lead.

He had this unique presence as the introverted acrophobic brother and he definitely made an impression on me. The play was...

Las Vegas Film Festival in 110 Heat, Yes, That Sucks

user
Do we give a sh*t about Vegas and its film festival? If you're Hollywood, you kind of look at it like an artifact on the artifact. A facsimile hatched together for the Sunset Boulevard  devotee/autograph-seeking/souvenir-collecting fan-based crowd.   Which is to say that in 110 F degree heat, stuck in Hooter's with a bunch of paunchy middle aged doofs looking for p-u-s-s-y, there are many other things one of the film persuasion might consider doing... laundry, for exampl...
