Casting news: Jesse Eisenberg to star in ’30 Minutes or Less’

Move over Michael Cera!! There’s a new awkward nerdy guy in town, and he actually shows an ounce of range! I’m talking about Jesse Eisenberg, who wowed audiences last year with ‘Adventureland’ and ‘Zombieland’ , made the Sundance crowd praise his performance in ‘Holy Rollers’ and will most likely do the same in the upcoming David Fincher flick, ‘The Social Network.’

In the film, which is scheduled for an October release [Oscar season bait], Eisenberg portrays the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg.  But for now he’s just been tapped to re-team with his ‘Zombieland’ director Ruben Fleischer for ’30 Minutes or Less.’

The action comedy will find Eisenberg as a pizza delivery boy who is pressured into committing a crime in 30 minutes.  Danny McBride will also star in the film.

The film has already been slated for an August 2011 release and production will begin in July.
