Jesse Eisenberg: Oscars
The 'Network' star hits the red carpet!
Though many may compare him to fellow actor Michael Cera, make no mistake about it, twenty-seven year old Jesse Eisenberg is his own person. The Queens native first landed on everyone’s radar back in 1999 when he landed the role of Kenny in Fox’s short-lived comedy-drama Get Real. (Fun fact: the show also starred future Academy Award nominated actress Anne Hathaway). After a few years dabbling in TV films and independent films such as Roger Dodger and The Squid and the Whale, Jesse’s breakthrough into mainstream Hollywood came with the 2009 horror-comedy Zombieland.

Continuing with his success, Jesse then landed the role of a lifetime as he portrayed Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, in the Academy Award nominated flick The Social Network. In celebration of his latest movie 30 Minutes Or Less which drops today, Celebuzz has compiled some obscure Jesse facts.
