Jesse Eisenberg says it was "strange" working with prestigious stars Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine in the film "Now You See Me" because of his character's required behavior towards them ... which is, well, not so nice.

In the movie, Eisenberg plays one of four Las Vegas magicians perform the ultimate trick that dives dangerously into reality -- robbing a bank. Caine portrays an insurance magnate who sponsors the group and Freeman plays a former magician who now reveals the secret to his former colleague's tricks. Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco play the other three magicians.
