Jesse Eisenberg has had some great roles playing the awkward coming-of-age geeky guy. With his newest flick Zombieland, he gets a chance to expand into a new genre of film – horror/comedy. Eisenberg spoke with dailyactor.com and gave some insight into his persona and how he feels inadequate in every film.
Even after the initial shock wears off, can’t you relax and think, “Wow. I really captured something there?”
No. I think I should have done it better or somebody else should have done it. Yeah, you never feel good. And then the times I feel really good after a scene, then I watch it and I’m like, uh, that was boring. From my acting training, you learn to just remain truthful, under what they call “imaginary circumstances.” And so the time you feel most truthful is often boring. So often the times you really feel good with a scene don’t coincide with the kinds of things one might like as a viewer, you know?
I enjoy watching Jesse a lot – too bad he doesn’t think he’s any good. If you aren’t familiar with him – watch The Squid & The Whale from a couple of years back or check him out in Adventureland with Kristen Stewart.
Zombieland co-stars Woody Harrelson, Abigail Breslin, Emma Stone and Amanda Heard and opens Friday October 2nd. Check out red carpet premiere photos of the cast (including Jesse) here.

The talented Joe Jonas already has legions of girls swooning over his every move, but when they find out he can blend a special perfume just for you – well, he might have to give up his music career. InStyle Magazine is reporting that The Jonas Brothers singer spent time at the Aromachology pop up store in Toronto and whipped up a one-of-a-kind mix for somebody special.
“…a new custom fragrance line based on personality. To select the top-notes, Jonas picked three words that best described his lady: creative, courageous, and sexy. Also? He signed the card “With Love.” We’re not sure who the lucky recipient was, but we’re seriously considering mixing our own scent online now.”
Who do you think Joe should give his custom scent to?

While his sci-fi flick Pandorum is currently playing in theaters, Cam Gigandet went right back to filming on the set of Priest. The actor is playing a good guy this time around on a mission to save the girl he loves with Paul Bettany as the title character. Speaking to MTV, Gigandet mentions that he has really taken to riding motorcycles:
“Then I finally got to ride my motorcycle on set, and it is a huge beast of a motorcycle. It’s one of the coolest motorcycles, and Priest [Bettany] is on a motorcycle as well, and we get to ride in the middle of the desert on salt flats—it [looks] like those Chevy commercials.”
“We get to ride in the open plains, just me and him in the middle of nowhere,” Gigandet said of his time with Bettany in the flick, which hits theaters next summer. “It’s probably one of the best feelings in the world.”
This film sounds great! A half-vampire sheriff riding a motorcycle to save the girl. Looking forward to this movie due out August 2010.

Actress Hayden Panettiere revealed she is afraid of someone stabbing her because she plays a cheerleader named Claire Bennet who has the ability to regenerate on the hit TV series “Heroes”.
“I’m just afraid somebody’s going to stab me one day and think that my power is real and they expect me to start healing. I’ve been thinking about that since the first season,” Hayden confessed.
“I’m like, ‘What if somebody really thought I was indestructible?’ Because I’ve heard some wacky things come out of people’s mouths that you go, ‘Guys, it’s not real’.”
Well there are some crazy people capable of everything! And some lunatics fans that are so involved with the show they actually start confusing fiction and reality. So let’s make this clear: Hayden does NOT have superpowers y’all!

Bandslam star Vanessa Hudgens opens up to Newsweek about being constantly followed by the paparazzi, her amazing fans and how to good it is to have real friends who she can always count on even if they haven’t seen each other for months.
Here are some highlights from Vanessa Hudgens “7 Things” Newsweek interview (watch video below):
On paparazzi: “Paparazzi are a nuisance because it doesn’t have anything to do with your actual job, which for me is acting and movies. Instead, they take interest in me filling up my tank at the gas station and random things. I think it’s unnecessary but it’s something that comes with the territory.”
On her fans that followed her from High School Musical: “It’s amazing. I’ve never had that obsession over anything where I started crying [at the sight]. But it’s incredible. They are the best fans.”
On keeping close to her friends: “We all have such hectic schedules that we’ll go from not seeing each other for months and when we do meet up again, we pick right back up where we started. I think it’s nice to have real friends like that. Girly nights are always fun — consisting of staying in, watching movies and grubbing out.”

Actor Chace Crawford revealed that he gave Taylor Swift one warm and tight hug just one day after the whole Kanye West meltdown incident at the 2009 MTV VMAs at a Kings of Leon concert.
“I’m so proud of you,” he told Swift, 19. “Don’t let anyone ever take your spotlight ever again.”
Swift thanked Crawford, 24, who, the source says, is “like an older brother type and is very protective over her” (although Swift once told Your Prom magazine Crawford was her “celeb dream date” for prom).

Getting some practice time in as you learn to drive is difficult if you are as well known as Daniel Radcliffe. Besides being really busy with filming and promotional obligations, actors are usually driven to and from sets so the 20 year-old Harry Potter actor tried to better his driving skills by leaving London and heading to the southern coastal town of Poole for lessons.
The congenial actor also caused a bit of a stir when he popped into a wedding reception at the hotel he stayed at.
Musician Stuart Darling, 24, who performed at the wedding, said: “He seemed very happy and comfortable having photos taken and signing autographs. He was a thoroughly nice chap.
“He said he was down from London taking some driving lessons where it was quieter, and seeing a friend.
“I presume he was on his own – I didn’t see anyone with him. He was probably a bit lonely and came out to socialize”
The Equus star appeared to enjoy himself and spent time dancing with the bride and bridesmaids until 1:30am.
That really is cute. How can you not love Daniel?
