Jesse Eisenberg is a prick or the interviewer sucks

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, Jun 4, 2013.

  1. Saw this yesterday.

    Anyone in journalism had tough interviews and I guess this guy is bit of prick.
    Was it unprofessional for the reporter to post this?

    I thought he just always played a dick.

    Story is exaggerated bullshit. Watch the interview. He's nowhere near being a prick. She's playing along. She's trying to build a rather mundane interview into something it isn't.

    Ok will admit to not recognizing the name at first and did not connect him to The Social
    Network. Went to IMDb to refresh my memory. Found this gem:

    "His mother is a professional clown"

    Now we know perhaps not the only one in the family.

    This times 100. This story is such bullshit. He was joking, she did NO preparation, got called on it, tried to play coy and flirty, he got sick of it and stopped being QUITE so friendly when she kept interrupting and not asking real questions, and she bitched and moaned.

    This. That was just playful back and forth that didn't quite work.

    Or ... she's a terrible, unprepared interviewer with a bad schtick and is really wasting his time.

    Just rip up the card and have a conversation. (Craig Ferguson fans will get the reference, but that could apply to ANY interview. Just be prepared.)

    Her: " ... so we can wrap this up."

    Eisenberg: "Hey, you're on my time." -- perfect delivery.

    I'd like to have a beer with him. Funny guy.

    I didn't think he was out of line at all. She was trying to be flirty (my guess is that she probably got the job that way) and he wasn't playing along.
