Jesse Eisenberg is a shoe-in for a Best Actor nomination in this year's Academy Awards for his role in David Fincher's The Social Network.
He's now jumping on a supporting role in a new independent film project called Free Samples. He will join Teeth's Jess Weixler in the film as well as Jason Ritter, Tippi Hedren, Hallie Pfeiffer, Keir O'Donnell, Jocelyn Donahue and Matt Walsh.
The story follows a law school drop-out (Weixler) who fills in as a server at a friend's food truck, where she doles out free samples of ice cream. The job tests her patience, and while she figures out what to do with her life, she finds herself being courted by a young man (Eisenberg) whom she barely remembers from the night before.
Eisenberg just got finished filming Ruben Fleischer's new comedy 30 Minutes or Less. Free Samples doesn't have a release date yet but production is currently underway in Los Angeles.
