EW have let us know that Jesse and his “The Social Network” castmates will be featured in this week’s Entertainment Weekly. Taylor Swift is on the cover so look out for it when it hits newstands this Friday.
Status Update: “I’m a foster father for cats, so I’m feeding and cleaning up after several of them right now. Reading White Noise by Don DeLillo; the first few pages are pretty good. Looking forward to traveling to Ulan Bator in Mongolia next month.”
Why him? At 27 years old, Eisenberg has already spent almost a decade stealing scenes in everything from indie dramas (The Squid and the Whale) to genre hits (Zombieland). But his performance in The Social Network still felt like a revelation. Driven, menacing, and vulnerable, Eisenberg’s take on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg showed off a level of skill and subtlety that’s rare in actors twice his age. And while he probably won’t be turning up on Zuckerberg’s list of Facebook friends anytime soon, Eisenberg has joined a far more elite group: actors with a solid shot at Oscar gold this year.
