Irons is fine even if I can't shake the pervy quality he has after watching the Lolita remake.
He skeeves me out due to the pervlemint twins in Dead Ringers...but I still think he's a great actor.
Thing is, even if they wanted to go that route with Eisenberg, he still looks like he's 12. And I already know exactly how he's going to play the part. The same way he plays every part.
Like he is anxious and irritated...but still kind of a purposeful slacker? Yeah. Not buying it.
And I actually like the guy, so it's not just hate. I just don't see him in this role.
