Ned Eisenberg

  1. John Turturro, Miller’s Crossing, 1990.    The Coen brothers tackle  30s/40s, gangster noir…  Their 1988 draft had Eisenberg, Eric  Begosian, Michael Mantel, John Pankow in the Bernie Bernbaum mix. Only Turturro and Marcia Gay Harden actually played the roles suggested for them two years previously. The Coens ran into writer’s block while scripting this film, took three weeks off and wrote their next one, Barton Fink.  About a scenarist with writer’s block. Another  great role for Turturro.
