Jesse Eisenberg Chats Oscars & New Projects

Jesse Eisenberg: Oscars
The 'Network' star hits the red carpet!
The Social Network star Jesse Eisenberg might not have gone home with a golden statue at Sunday night’s Academy Awards, but that won’t stop him from becoming one of Hollywood’s elite actors.

Celebuzz caught up with the actor at an event hosted by Bing at Latitude 33 in Marina del Rey celebrating his cover of the magazine Los Angeles Confidential, and talked to him about how Justin Timberlake told him to prepare for the ceremony as well as his next project.

Check out the full interview after the jump!

What are you most excited about for the Academy Awards?
I don’t know, I feel like I don’t know what to expect from the show, I’m happy that I’m with something I’m proud of and part of a movie that people like. But I don’t know, it’ll be fun to see the Academy Awards, I don’t have a television, so this will be the first year I’m watching, still with not television, just in person.

Has anyone, such as co-stars, given you advice about going?
Yeah Justin Timberlake told me to go on time, because if you go late it looks bad.

Have you heard from Mark Zuckerberg since you did SNL?
No I assume he’s very busy. He doesn’t want to get in touch with a movie actor.

What’s your next project?
It’s been hard to think about it, with all the various events I’ve had to attend over the last few months. I haven’t been quite able to do my job, you know, acting.
