Did Morgan Freeman Really Narrate Jesse Eisenberg’s Life for a Day?
Jesse Eisenberg‘s best known for playing Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network, but the 29-year-old actor is now taking on the role of a magician in Now You See Me, starring alongside Isla Fisher and Morgan Freeman.
With Freeman playing the role of Thaddeus, a famed magic debunker, we asked Jesse what was it like to work with such a legend?
“He came back to New York with me and just kind of followed me around and just kind of narrated my day casually,” says Jesse. “I rented him a bicycle, so he could stay behind me, keep the pace. It just gave it a dramatic edge I wasn’t used to. It was really nice.”
Whether he’s joking or not, having your life narrated by Morgan Freeman would be kind of amazing.
