News   THE SCREENING ROOM: Asuncion's Jesse Eisenberg Visits "The Late Show With David Letterman" (Video)
 
Jesse Eisenberg, who received an Oscar nomination for portraying Mark Zuckerberg in the 2010 film "The Social Network," recently visited "The Late Show With David Letterman" to talk about his world-premiere play, Asuncion, which opened Off-Broadway Oct. 27.

The Rattlestick Playwrights Theater production, which began previews Oct. 12, plays at the Cherry Lane Theatre. The limited engagement continues through Nov. 27 and is directed by Kip Fagan (Reborning, That Pretty Pretty…).

Eisenberg also stars as Edgar in the comedy about two 20-something roommates who share a shabby apartment and the woman who enters their lives. The cast also features Justin Bartha (All New People, Lend Me A Tenor, "The Hangover") as Vinny, Remy Auberjonois (The Country Girl, Frost/Nixon) as Stuart and Camille Mana ("Smart People," "One on One") in her Off-Broadway debut in the title role.

Here's how Rattlestick describes the play: "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."
