Before he takes on the role of Lex Luthor in Batman vs. Superman, you can see Jesse Eisenberg in the film The Double. In The Double, Eisenberg play Simon. Simon is a timid man, scratching out an isolated existence in an indifferent world. He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams. He feels powerless to change any of these things. The arrival of a new co-worker, James, serves to upset the balance. James is both Simons exact physical double and his opposite - confident, charismatic and good with women. To Simons horror, James slowly starts taking over his life. The Double is directed by Richard Ayoade (known for his acting roles in The Watch and The IT Crowd) and is based on the Fyodor Dostoyevsky novella of the same name. The Double will be released in theaters March 7, 2014.
