Jesse Eisenberg Sues Lionsgate For $3 Million Over 'Camp Hell'

Sometimes too much publicity can be... bad publicity.

ET reports that "Social Network" actor Jesse Eisenberg is suing Lionsgate and Grindstone Entertainment over advertisements that suggest the buzzed-about actor had a major role in the low-budget horror flick "Camp Hell." The catch? Eisenberg appeared in the movie in a blip cameo role that lasted "less than five minutes," according to the legal documents that were obtained by the news show. The suit asks for a compensation of $3 million for Eisenberg.

Eisenberg -- who had allegedly appeared in the movie as a "favor to friends" -- previously starred in indie films "Zombieland" and "The Squid and the Whale" before skyrocketing to fame as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in David Fincher's Oscar-winning film.
