Kristen Stewart may have another project up her sleeve shortly. The Twilight actress is reportedly ready to sign on to star in An American Girl. Actor James Woods is directing the script and gives this summary of the plot:
“It’s about a young woman who is really destructive. It’s that magical time right after you’re out of high school. She was the top swimmer and dive champion in school. Now it’s a year later and she lives in a little town in Indiana and the place is dying, she’s working in a grocery store and drinking and drugging too much and she’s showing off in front of this guy who likes her, and gets involved in a big sex thing with two guys drunk one night at a quarry. She gets taped doing it on somebody’s phone and in a small town, her reputation is ruined and on a drunken whim, she joins the Marines, which is ridiculous.
Stewart has had quite a number of projects in the past couple of years, including Adventureland with Jesse Eisenberg, The Runaways with Dakota Fanning and of course, The Twilight Saga films. Woods believes this project will earn Stewart an Oscar nomination. That’s a pretty bold statement.

Jesse Eisenberg may be uncomfortable watching himself on screen, but lots of other people aren’t. His latest movie Zombieland, costarring Woody Harrelson and Abigail Breslin, just took the weekend box office number one spot bringing in $25 million on opening weekend. Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs came in second (again!) and the double shot of Pixar Toy Story & Toy Story 2 took third in 3-D. Ellen Page’s latest – the roller derby coming-of-age Whip It! was a disappointing seventh place.

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.

Actor Michael Angarano has signed on to star in the film ‘Ceremony.’ Jesse Eisenberg (you-know-who’s co-star from Adventureland )is in talks to take the other main role in this indie romantic comedy.
[...]“the comedy follows a young man (Eisenberg) who falls hard for an older woman about to be married. The infatuation prompts him to take along his unwitting friend (Angarano) to a beach town in an effort to break up the wedding. Upon arriving, the young men quickly realize just how out of place they are among the stately British groom-to-be and his guests.”
The talented actor’s work has been overshadowed by all the speculation on his personal life but now, we have news of a new project for him. Finally! Something involving Angarano that doesn’t involve Kristen Stewart!
