Eisenberg talks about his experiences doing multiple takes for the movie’s director, David Fincher. Jesse Eisenberg puts a positive spin on the whole deal.
You can tell that Robert Duvall is champing at the bit about this whole idea of doing 50 takes for one scene. Near the end of the video he calls out Stanley Kubrick — another director known for doing dozens of takes for one scene or line — as “an actor’s enemy.”
“They may be great movies,” Duvall says of Kubrick’s work — but they’re some of the “worst” performances in cinema. Ouch!
