    Jesse Eisenberg dropped by More Home Slice during his visit to Austin on Monday afternoon. This was the second-to-last stop on a nationwide tour to promote his new movie, “30 Minutes or Less.” Eisenberg has served food at pizzerias in all the other cities he has visited as part of the tour. The line to meet Eisenberg stretched down the street to the St. Vincent de Paul thrift store on South Congress Avenue. As part of the event, Eisenberg signed posters, posed for photographs with fans and served slices of pizza. People at the front of the line had been waiting for about an hour-and-a-half. Several fans interviewed had left their seats in line for the advance screening of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” in order to shake hands with the star of “The Social Network.” Eisenberg even got one offer to be flashed by a male fan, which he declined. Despite the promotional nature of the event, Eisenberg advised one 6-year-old fan not to see his movie. A sold-out early screening of “30 Minutes or Less” will be showing tonight at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar at 7 p.m.
