Actor Jesse Eisenberg, In A Fit of Deep Insight: Compares Comic-Con to Genocide

It’s official. Words now have NO meaning!

Eisenberg, who plays Lex Luthor in the upcoming “Batman v. Superman, ” was at the massive San Diego convention last week with co-stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. In an interview Monday, he was decidedly negative about the experience.

“It is like being screamed at by thousands of people. I don’t know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide. I can’t think of anything that’s equivalent,” he said.

Eisenberg spoke at the premiere of “The End of the Tour,” with Jason Segal, about the release of David Foster Wallace’s novel “Infinite Jest.” Segal plays Wallace, while Eisenberg plays journalist David Lipsky.

“Yes I have never been on the other side, on your side of journalism. I have normally been the victim so I worked with the guy who I play, I play a real person, David Lipsky,” he said. “I interviewed him. He taught me how to interview and what his process is like and now I understand the pariahs that you guys are.”

Coming up: Marvel Comics now LITTERALLY WORSE THAN HITLER!

  • WTF??

      A genocide is nothing more serious than a poorly planned party where the host ran out of hors-d’oeuvres.

      Oh, that celebrity fundraising ball was absolutely dreadful!
      Can you believe that they ran out of canapé?
      It was just like Darfour in there, I tell you!
      Now I know just how those Jews felt at Auschwitz.

    Lex Luthor? This pitiful douchebag is playing a supervillain?

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      That was kind of a shocker too.
      He looks like he would do a good as as the super-villain: emo hipster fag man, but I ain’t no casting director.

    He’s playing the pearl clutching version of Lex Luthor.

    Give this man his STOOPID ACCREDITATION.

    Gee. A modern actor with a limited vocabulary. That’s unexpected.

      I loved it a few years ago when it was pointed out the George W. Bush was better educated than most of his Hollywood critics, the majority of whom barely made it through high school, let alone an arts college.

      I saw an interview with a cast member of “The Big Bang Theory”, and although he plays a scientist, he could barely speak about anything beyond his pet dog.

      Most actors did nothing but win the genetic lottery, look good under professional lighting, hair and makeup, and are famous because they repeat words someone else writes for them in a way someone else directs them to.

    Him and Michael Cera are this generation’s clinically depressed icons. It’s like Bill Murray went back in time and was never funny. At least you kind of get where Jason Schwartzman is going with his dead dry black approach but these two are just sad.

    • I like Michael Cera. I dig pretty much love anything to do with Arrested Development.
