Jesse Eisenberg plays Columbus, Woody Harrelson‘s character Tallahassee‘s sidekick in Zombieland, as the two find creative ways to survive in a world run by zombies.
Eisenberg realizes good nutrition is essential even if you’re not hiding from zombies in an amusement park, so he takes Woody’s advice and follows a vegetarian diet like his co-star.
“I’ve admired him for many years,” Eisenberg said. “I work with a few animal rights organizations, I’ve been vegetarian for five years and I was vegan for a year. I’m not a vegan right now, but when we were filming I ate all the same food he ate.”
Of course, the whole zombie plague happened because of bad hamburgers, you know.
“At first, we weren’t sure if people would be interested in knowing the back story. And then we did the test screenings of it and realized people actually want to know where it came from.”
“So the final verdict is that it’s now like a mad cow disease. It came from contaminated hamburger, which is good because it has some kind of possible practical implications toward the food industry. Woody is really happy with that because he’s a strict vegan.”
The next time you drive by a burger joint, watch out.
