Jason Segel Says Jesse Eisenberg is a 'Superior Intellect'
Jason Segel suits up for The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences screening of his new movie The End of the Tour held at United Artists East Hampton Cinema on Sunday (August 2) in East Hampton, N.Y.
The 35-year-old actor recently praised his co-star Jesse Eisenberg.
“Jesse is a superior intellect,” Jason told USA Today. “He’s one of the smartest guys I’ve ever met. I’ve never met a better actor or a better friend.”
Jason continued, “We didn’t meet until this movie, and we had like a meet and greet dinner with me, Jesse and the producers. We had never met each other before and you could tell we were all like feeling each other out a little bit…Someone asked me at the table how I got started writing, and I said this thing that I always say to deflect the question. I said, ‘It was by necessity. No one was knocking down my door to play Captain America.’ And without missing a beat, Jesse went, ‘No, but you could probably play the captain of a weaker country.’ And I knew at that moment that I was going to have to show up really sharp and ready.”
