We've seen him bumble around as Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network, we've seen him bumble around as a Woody Allen surrogate in To Rome with Love, and now Jesse Eisenberg will bumble around as...a drug dealer's right-hand man?
Jesse Eisenberg plays alongside Tracy Morgan and Melissa Leo in the new drug comedy Why Stop Now. Check out the first trailer:
Eisenberg plays Eli, a piano prodigy who attempts to check his mother Penny (Leo) into rehab on the morning of an important audition. An odd turn of events forces them to work together with Penny's drug dealer Sprinkles (Morgan) on an unexpected adventure.
Leo won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2010 for The Fighter. Morgan, best known for his role on as Tracy Jordan on 30 Rock, has had some film success as well. In 2010, he starred with Bruce Willis in Cop Out and made a cameo in Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell's comedy The Other Guys. Check out some The Other Guys quotes for more.
Why Stop Now will see a limited release on August 17.
