Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari got together at SF's Goat Hill Pizza on Wednesday to promote their upcoming movie 30 Minutes or Less. The comedic caper features Jesse as a pizza delivery driver who gets roped into a bank robbery, and Aziz costars as his best friend, a schoolteacher. The pair got instruction on using the registers from some amused employees and handed out pepperoni slices to fans who stopped by. Jesse and Aziz are getting an early start getting the word out about 30 Minutes or Less, which hits theaters on Aug. 12. The film gives Jesse a chance to let his silly side shine, but in the meantime, his drama Holy Rollers hits theaters in the UK today.
The top 10 of our PopSugar 100 is full of familiar famous faces, with stars like Johnny Depp, Jennifer Aniston, and Robert Pattinson right at the top! There are many young stars who weren't in the single-digit rankings, so we want to know who you think will jump to the head of the class in 2012! Emma Stone had a breakout 2011, racking up a Golden Globe nomination and landing roles in The Help and The Amazing Spider-Man. Ian Somerhalder heated up the small screen as Damon on The Vampire Diaries and was your pick for number one on the Favorite Vampires and Werewolves list. Meanwhile, Jesse Eisenberg wowed as Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network, and Jennifer Lawrence got an Oscar nod for Winter's Bone. Chris Hemsworth was sexy in Thor, as Ashley Greene moved beyond Twilight with a new batch of movies and a stylish year on the red carpet. So tell us — which up-and-comer do you think has a shot at nabbing a spot on next year's PopSugar 100 top 10?
Jesse Eisenberg is back at the hands of his Zombieland director, Ruben Fleischer, in 30 Minutes or Less, and this time he's got a few other funny guys by his side. Jesse stars as a 20-something slacker who works as a pizza guy and is held up during a routine delivery by a pair of amateur mob guys, Danny McBride and Nick Swardson. The gangsters strap a bomb to Jesse's chest and give him nine hours to rob a bank. So who does he go to for help? His estranged best friend, played by Aziz Ansari.
The first trailer is more focused on Jesse and Aziz, who is already stealing the show, than Nick and Danny, and there's barely a female in sight. 30 Minutes or Less is out on Aug. 12, so check out the expletive-ridden (though not nearly as much so as The Change-Up) preview below and let us know what you think!
