Dave Franco (yes, the James Franco's little
doppelganger brother) is called "The Sleight" in the upcoming heisty magic movie "Now You See Me," and now he's ready to prove that his hand skills do indeed live up to that moniker ... and also that, just like his brother, his intellect is likely of the right-brain nature.
Franco and real-life magician — or should we say as real-life as magicians get — David Kwong teamed up for this new promo video for the film in which Franco smiles maniacally and throws cards at the camera. It's a technique called, you guessed it, "card-throwing" and Franco proves to be pretty apt at it. It's all in the wrist, of course! Get More »
Separated at birth? Long-lost twins? Vague coincidence? It's all possible when actors look so alike they could be siblings.
Is that Zachary Quinto, the Chief Science Officer of "Star Trek Into Darkness," running from the horror of "Aftershock"? Ah, no, at second glance, that's actually Quinto's doppelganger, Eli Roth, the man who gave us "Cabin Fever" and shot Hitler full o' holes in "Inglourious Basterds."
Anyway, with "Aftershock" and the new "Trek" being released back-to-back, we figured this was the perfect time to match up our favorite Hollywood doubles as they compete for roles, attention and DNA. It's like looking into a mirror! Get More »
The "porn star name game" is a time-honored tradition in America.
It's a game pretty much anyone can play, depending on the rules — we employ the First Name: First Pet, Last Name: Street You Grew Up On method (our apologies to those with allergies, maybe you had a goldfish?). And the results are, without fail, hilarious.
We asked 100 of our favorite movie stars in Hollywood — including Emma Watson, Keira Knightley, Megan Fox, Ryan Gosling, Paul Rudd, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Katie Holmes, Jon Hamm, Emma Stone and Neil Patrick Harris — for their porn star names. They did not let us down. Click through the gallery for all 100.

Riviera"), Joanna Varikos ("Angel 14") and Kase Wickman ("Blake Sisters").
It's time for a little movie magic ... or a movie about magic, rather.
Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Mark Ruffalo, Dave Franco, Melanie Laurent, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman (whew!) star in "Now You See Me," a crime thriller about a group of illusionists who manage to pull off Robin Hood-style heists during their stage shows, showering their audiences with the money amidst all the flashing lights and frenetic editing.

Let's get this out of the way right up front: No, "Night Moves" is not the long-awaited Bob Seger biopic. Sorry, fans of the Silver Bullet will have to wait just a little bit longer for that elusive pipe dream to become a reality.
But according to Collider, "Night Moves" does have two other things going for it, namely the fact that Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning are in discussions to join the film as co-stars.
Rock on. Get More »
With his perpetually tweaking OCD personality, "Social Network" Oscar-nominee Jesse Eisenberg always gets the most cinematic mileage out of dropping himself into super-frantic situations, i.e. robbing a bank ("30-Minutes or Less") or hunting the undead ("Zombieland").
Food trucks are so in right now, but working in one is no joke.
Meet Jillian, the anti-heroine of "Free Samples." Her life is a mess, and at the moment she's in charge of an ice cream truck despite a monster hangover and some rather poor decisions the night before. Or, in general, since she's dropped out of law school and bellied up to the bar.
"Free Samples" stars Jess Weixler as Jillian, Jesse Eisenberg as a would-be suitor, Halley Feiffer ("Bored to Death," "The Squid and the Whale") as Jillian's well-meaning friend and Jason Ritter as one of her unwitting customers/victims. Get More »
What happens when you pair up two of Hollywood's most respected young stars?
We're all about to find out, because word around Tinseltown is that Mia Wasikowska and Jesse Eisenberg have signed on to play hefty roles in the upcoming drama, "The Double."
Inspired by Fyodor Dostoyevsky's classic novella (one of the ones you were supposed to read in school, but didn't), the story follows an insignificant man who is driven to the brink of a breakdown by the appearance of his doppelganger. Get More »
Turns out a whole slew of talent are updating their resumes in the hopes of being able to "Get a Job."
According to Variety, the CBS Films project from "Roger Dodger" director Dylan Kidd has yet to be greenlit, but is either in talks with or attaching actors the likes of "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston and "50/50" darling Anna Kendrick.
The company snagged the Black List script by Kyle Pennekamp and Scott Turpel in 2009, which "follows a college graduate and his friends who have to lower their expectations about life as they enter the real world during a recession." Hmm, sounds timely, or as timely as a four-year economic slump can be. Get More »
Jesse Eisenberg won't stand for this kind of horror.
The "30 Minutes or Less" star has filed a lawsuit Lionsgate and Grindstone Entertainment for throwing his name and face all over the DVD cover of the low budget horror film, "Camp Hell," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Eisenberg is barely in the movie for five minutes -- he filmed his small role back in 2007 as a favor to friends, way before he was nominated for an Oscar for his starring turn as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in "The Social Network." Get More »
