Woody Allen gets Alec Baldwin, wants Jesse Eisenberg

By Sean O’Connell Making a Michael Cera-Jesse Eisenberg comparison’s too easy. True cinema junkies know Eisenberg’s line delivery and pregnant pauses are far more similar to 1970s- of 1980s-era Woody Allen, circa “Manhattan,” “Broadway Danny Rose” or “Hanna and Her Sisters.”

So it’s music to our ears that the Oscar-nominated star of “The Social Network” and the animated feature “Rio” might be circling a role in an upcoming Allen comedy. According to Deadline, Eisenberg “is also in line for a lead” in a production that just buttoned down Alec Baldwin.

Furthering Allen’s desire to explore European metros such as London and Paris, the film will be shot in Rome.

But when? Baldwin’s committed to Adam Shankman’s “Rock of Ages” musical, and he’s got a regular spot on “30 Rock.” Eisenberg, meanwhile, is in pre-production on Phil Dorling’s “Predisposed,” with Melissa Leo and “30 Rock” co-star Tracy Morgan.

Maybe Eisenberg just wants to work with the entire “30 Rock” cast? Tina Fey, you have been warned.
