Jesse Eisenberg will be making his playwright debut coming this fall in New York.
He wrote and will be starring in the off-Broadway show Asucion this October. And by his side will be The Hangover star Justin Bartha.
The play is said to be about roommates dealing with race relations.
"Edgar and Vinny are not racist. In fact, Edgar maintains a blog condemning American imperialism and Vinny is three-quarters into a PhD in Black Studies. When a young Filipina woman named Asuncion becomes their new roommate, the pair have a perfect opportunity to demonstrate how open minded they truly are."
The play will open at The Cherry Lane Theatre on October 12 and is expected to run through November 27.
Hmm, wonder where Jesse got the inspiration to write this story?
Hope it's a success though, Jess. Good luck to you.
