New Orleans — “Jesse pitching is a whole different ball of wax,” Woody Harrelson said of his “Now You See Me” cohort Jesse Eisenberg. Speaking to HitFix, he then launched into exactly what Eisenberg pitching a friend on a movie script sounds like. “… if you don’t like it…”
“He’s the anti-pitch. Funny enough, it worked. It made me want to read it after he talked about it,” Harrelson said.
Check out our interview with Harrelson above, especially the bit on Mark Ruffalo’s role as a federal detective assigned to investigate the Four Horsemen — four magicians in “Now You See Me” played by Eisenberg, Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco — who have pulled off a series of apparent heists.
“Nobody could’ve done that better than Mark Ruffalo. You just care about this guy, you just want him to succeed.”
Hear more about “Catching Fire,” the next “Hunger Games” movie, too. “Now You See Me” is out Friday.
