Nominee Spotlight: Jesse Eisenberg


Birthdate: October 5, 1983

Birthplace: New York City

Big Screen Debut: Roger Dodger (2002)

Oscar stats: First Time Nominee

It’s hard to believe that  Jesse Eisenberg was ever once considered to be “the poor man’s Michael Cera”— anyone with half a brain and a general knowledge of Eisenberg films could see that this guy was always destined for something special.  My love for Jesse started with The Squid and the Whale, continued with The Education of Charlie Banks, took a turn for the creepy with Adventureland and by the time The Social Network hit theaters, I was completely obsessed. Everything he does has the perfect touch of nuance and even when he was being a complete too as Mark Zuckerberg, you still wanted to throw your arms around him and give him a big hug. Can’t wait to see what’s next for Jesse!
