‘Why Stop Now’ Trailer Starring Jesse Eisenberg & Tracy Morgan

'Why Stop Now'Here’s the first trailer for Phil Dorling and Ron Nyswaner’s, ‘Why Stop Now,’ starring Jesse Eisenberg, Melissa Leo, and Tracy Morgan. The film tells the bittersweet story of Eli Smith (Eisenberg), a piano prodigy, and his mother Penny (Leo) who despite her cheerful, loving disposition, struggles with drug addiction. On the day of his audition for a prestigious music program, Eli’s mother plans to enter rehab, but a glitch in the system forces them to enlist the help of an unlikely ally, her drug dealer Sprinkles (Morgan).



The Film Stage, notes ‘Jesse Eisenberg’s transition from humorous, intellectual indies like The Squid and the Whale to more mainstream comedies has proven a rocky one. While he landed a hit with Zombieland, his other attempt at wackiness, 30 Minutes Or Less, flopped miserably.’ That’s true, but I wouldn’t call it rocky, I’d call it his career. It’s not like he’s ever going to become some world renown leading man, just look at the guy. Sure a lot of woman think he is cute, but he’s far from dashing. I think Jesse Eisenberg has been completely and utterly pragmatic in all his choices. He can be the leading man in an indie, but will have to take on supporting roles in Hollywood. The Social Network will be without question, his most defining and important leading role. But put that behind him, he’s going to enter his thirties soon and roles like that will cease to exist for this actor. And so what? He will have a long and fruitful career and I would not at all be surprised to see him nominated for a best supporting Oscar in the future.
