Eisenberg, renowned for charisma, extends a magician’s cap, brimming with anticipation. During a recent interview with Kristen Maldonado, the artist, reflecting on his return to the franchise, shared insights into his unique journey.


The actor recounted the inception of the first film, where an evolving script prompted a collaborative process, allowing him to shape his character, a confident showman mirroring his real-world stage persona. He said, 

“That’s my favorite thing in the world……. So I was working with these great writers and I said I want to play like this kind of arrogant confident showman because I as an actor. I’m like a very nervous kind of show. I’m a showman but I am nervous and like that wouldn’t be great and so like. I got to play in two movies already like this comfortable self-confident person who’s also a performer like me, and uh it was just amazing. It was like a vacation because I got to feel good about myself all day on set.”

In the interview, Eisenberg’s genuine enthusiasm shines through as he expresses a longing for the continuation of the series. He playfully suggests that a yearly installment could even replace his need for antidepressants, given the joy and confidence he derives from portraying his character. He explained,


“You know like the character is and so when I heard that, making the third one. Please please If they could make one of these a year, I could finally wean myself off anti-depressants because they make me feel so great.”

This earnest plea, akin to a compelling invocation, beckons scriptwriters to craft another chapter rife with intrigue and illusion.

Eisenberg’s eagerness to engage in Now You See Me 3 is deeply rooted in his profound connection with the character, J. Daniel Atlas.


The award-nominated actor discusses his anticipation for the franchise. In a recent Collider interview, he sheds light on his unique approach to portraying Atlas, a thief and magician.

Eisenberg reveals discomfort with traditional “method acting,” preferring a performative yet genuine connection with his character. He acknowledges that Now You See Me pushes him furthest in feeling the character due to the alignment with his real-life role as a performer. He stated,


“I found that not a lot of actors do or some do it kind of performatively, but in a way that doesn’t feel exactly real. For me, doing those movies, Now You See Me more than anything is like the furthest I go in terms of feeling like the character because I am an actual performer as my job and the character is a performer.”

Despite his love for the films, Eisenberg is drawn to the distinct attitude associated with the franchise and his character, challenging his comfort zone.

Counting down to the third installment, now in pre-production under Ruben Fleischer’s direction, Eisenberg awaits the cinematic resurgence with palpable excitement.
