Jesse Eisenberg Dishes on His Latest Co-Star (Himself)

Writer-director Richard Ayoade and his two co-stars, Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska, introduce us to their comedy The Double, whose main character is driven insane by his exact double who takes over his life.

"It's kind of an exhilarating acting exercise, you know, like tailor the pace to both characters. And it's really thrilling to work with another actor who is great, and you're usually getting a lot from them, like Mia. This gave me the opportunity to not only set the tone of the scene, but also set the other character up for something I would want to do with that character," says Eisenberg about playing two roles.
