The 26-year-old actor, currently filming an overnight scene at the Chevalier Theater located at 30 Forest St. in Medford, agreed to go on camera and urge folks to adopt abandoned and abused animals for a purr-worthy public service announcement (PSA) for the Washington Animal Rescue League.
Eisenberg, a foster parent to cats of his own, posed with a gray and white stray at the InterContintental Boston located at 510 Atlantic Ave. while taking a break from filming the Boston-set scenes for "The Social Network." Insiders at the shoot say Eisenberg was gracious and accommodating on set.
As previously reported in Loaded Gun Boston, Eisenberg is wrapping in Massachusetts this weekend and slotted to shoot two scenes at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland beginning Monday, Nov. 2 and Tuesday, Nov. 3 between 6-10 p.m. Filming is slotted to continue in the wee hours after 10 p.m. in the academic areas around the Keyser and Wyman quadrangles.
In "The Social Network," Eisenberg stars as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
The script follows founder Zuckerberg getting dumped at a Boston-area bar (shot at the Thirsty Scholar Pub in Somerville) and ends with him adding his former girlfriend to his friend list on his multibillion-dollar social networking site. The story is based on Mezrich's latest book, "The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook. A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal."
The film has been shooting in Boston since Monday, Oct. 19 and will move in November to Los Angeles, where it's scheduled to wrap in February.
