Richard Ayoade & Jesse Eisenberg on "The Double"

Actor Jesse Eisenberg and writer/director Richard Ayoade join Jian to discuss "The Double", a new film based on a Dostoevsky novella about a man whose life is upended by another man who looks uncannily like him. In a surprisingly lighthearted interview about the darkly surreal movie, Eisenberg and Ayoade reflect on the humour in existential crises, the cultural resonance of feeling invisible, and the dynamic tension between two dopplegängers who are not strictly good or evil.
