Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Unlike many young actors trying to build their careers, Jesse Eisenberg had the luxury of choosing artistically fulfilling roles while occasionally balancing higher-profile parts in major studio films. Though he made his first onscreen strides on television, Eisenberg made a distinct impression as a teenager who is looking to become a man in the indie drama "Roger Dodger" (2002). While he was lost in the shuffle of M. Night Shyamalan's "The Village" (2004), he earned strong critical praise for his performance in "The Squid and the Whale" (2005), a semi-autobiographical coming-of-age drama directed by Noah Baumbach. Following major supporting roles in "Cursed" (2005) and "The Hunting Party" (2007), Eisenberg had his mainstream breakout with a starring role as a nebbish survivor of the zombie apocalypse in the surprise horror comedy hit, "Zombieland" (2009) as well as his critically lauded performance as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in David Fincher's brilliant drama "The Social Network" (2010). Thanks to the success of both movies, Eisenberg established himself as a talented and accomplished performer on the cusp of becoming a major star.
