Jesse Eisenberg is playing one of the most intimidating villains in comic book history, and yes, even he's afraid of the character!
Taking on the role of Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Eisenberg confessed to Seth Meyers Thursday that gearing up to play Superman's nemesis was worrisome because he had to do something he has never done before: shave his head.
"It was really strange," he said of the experience. "It's the kind of thing where you felt you could really damage yourself."
With his scalp exposed, Eisenberg revealed that he felt he needed to be extra careful on-set because he was so worried he could hurt himself, which the Late Night host said makes "Lex Luthor seem so much less intimidating."
When Meyers showed a picture that leaked of Eisenberg in character as the wealthy villain, he mentioned that he wasn't wearing a bald cap.
The the Oscar-nominated actor joked that his face was "all computer-generated."
