Jesse Eisenberg on Sundance’s ‘The End of the Tour’ and Playing Lex Luthor in ‘Batman v Superman’

Variety

Jesse Eisenberg received an Oscar nomination for playing Mark Zuckerberg in “The Social Network,” and he takes on playing another, albeit much-lesser known, real person in “The End of the Tour,” which premieres at Sundance on Friday night. The drama, directed by James Ponsoldt (“The Spectacular Now”), retraces the five days that Rolling Stone journalist David Lipsky (Eisenberg) spent interviewing author David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel) after the publication of his novel “Infinite Jest” in 1996.

The story is too old to be commented.

The premise has certainly got my attention. Have Infinite Jest on my Kindle but haven't gotten around to reading it.

I've heard great things of David Foster Wallace.
