Jesse Eisenberg stars alongside an ensemble cast that includes Morgan Freeman, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo and Michael Caine in “Now You See Me.” The film centers around a group of magicians who add robbing a bank to their act.
Eisenberg said that his own magic skills aren’t quite up to heist level, but he did learn a few simpler tricks for the movie.
“I learned a few things… I can do card and coin tricks now. I can do small parts of the movie’s bigger tricks,” the actor said. “You first see me on the street in Chicago. I get a girl to choose a card then toss the deck up in the air, and that card appears in lights on a tower behind me. I can make someone focus on the one card in a deck that I want them to see. But I don’t know how to wire a skyscraper.”
“Now You See Me” hits theaters on May 31. Check out a trailer for the movie below.
