Kevin Spacey talks Jesse Eisenberg + Spacey wants to work with Woody Allen

When it was announced that Jesse Eisenberg will play the traditionally bald baddie Lex Luthor in 2016's Batman Vs. Superman film, some fans were in uproar. Not cinema's previous Metropolitan power-mad magnate, however, as our interview with Kevin Spacey in the new issue of Empire reveals.

"First of all, I think [Jesse Eisenberg] is a remarkable actor. He's just going to fucking own it. I think it's a great idea and I wish him the best with it."

"But now I want to explore different terrain," Spacey adds. "I wrote Woody Allen a letter last year, saying I'd be keen to do something with him. And he wrote back, very charmingly, so I'm on the list now! I set him up with a Netflix subscription too, but I don't know if he's used it. So, yeah, it would be great if that happened. I'm going to write to Scorsese. There are a lot of directors I need to get letters out to..."

These are just teasers for the interview proper, which touches on everything from working with Richard Pryor on See No Evil, Hear No Evil to winking at Meryl Streep on the set of Heartburn in 1986. Look forward to finding out how his passion for impersonations came about and who has recently appeared on his mimicking roster.

I can't think of an A-lister who hasn't worked with Woody Allen in the past 20 years. His movies are award bait. This will keep going on and people shouldn't be shocked anymore. Nothing will change as long the money keeps rolling.

A post with any actor who has supported/worked with woody/polanski/et al should start like this: "(insert respective offender's name here) apologist (insert actor's/actresses name)"
