I noticed they put in movies here for the set—for the college parties and, um. —MY FAMILY HOME WITH JESSE EISENBERG
JESSE: A lot of times, the takes that David says he likes are the ones where I feel that I didn’t do anything on. And it’s—it’s frustrating because you’re trained to… do otherwise, you know? You’re trained to kind of, like—not even trained but feel sated as an actor when you feel like you’ve done something and you’ve had kind of an emotional experience. You know, and if possible some kind of cathartic experience even, which is rare. The takes that the director seemed most happy with I kind of felt like a little—I didn’t have that feeling. I didn’t have that—you know that kind of like, that little orgasm so to speak, you get as an actor like, you know, you connected in some way. And I didn’t have that and he’d like it and when I did have that he’d say, ‘oh less with the eyebrows!’ or something, so it was kind of an often frustrating experience and often contrary to kind of what you plan to do as an actor in general.
