Who Is Jesse Eisenberg
For the time being, Jesse Eisenberg seems to be confined to the label of “geek” even if it’s prefaced by the word “sexiest,” but that shouldn’t be an issue for much longer. He portrayed one of the most successful geeks alive in a cutthroat, fast-talking, borderline sociopathic role that made fans take notice of his darker side—one that takes no prisoners, but definitely has the potential to take some Oscars.
American actor Jesse Eisenberg has a net worth of about $10 million dollars, as of 2020.
A Triple Threat
Born in Queens, New York Jesse’s father, a college professor, and mother, a professional clown, instilled in him the duality of his very academic yet performance-driven personality. Although he was a dedicated student, Jesse always had an eye for the stage and when he was 13 years old, he got his first taste in the Broadway play Summer and Smoke before touring with The Broadway Kids Sing Broadway.
When he was 16, Jesse’s family moved to New Jersey where he attended high school, but Jesse wasn’t your average theater geek. Instead of spending his afternoons rehearsing monologues with his classmates, Jesse was getting his practice in on the set of the television series Get Real. Although the series only lasted one year, Jesse added to his growing resume and even acted alongside a young Anne Hathaway in the short-lived dramedy series.
Having covered ground in theater and television, Jesse took to the silver screen when he made his feature film debut as a teenager in 2002 with The Emperor’s Club followed by Roger Dodger that same year and the critically acclaimed The Squid and the Whale in 2005. Jesse was finally getting his footing in the Hollywood circuit.
He would break out as the up-and-coming actor to watch when he appeared in the drama The Education of Charlie Banks in 2007. But Jesse found more mainstream fame as an unlikely heartthrob in Adventureland (2009) opposite Kristen Stewart and as Woody Harrelson’s sidekick in Zombieland (2009) for which he was nominated for a Teen Choice Award for Breakout Male.
It wasn’t the typical rugged good looks or tabloid scandal that landed Jesse’s name on the lips of Hollywood’s hottest directors, it was his sheer talent. And the following year he landed the role that would place him (although on-air it would seem like the last place he wanted to be) on every hot seat around the world. He portrayed the infamous Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in what many called 2010’s movie of the year, The Social Network. Jesse studied hours of tapes of Zuckerberg’s voice to accurately portray the antihero and in the process developed an affection for Zuckerberg, who many called the new-age “villain” of the film. Jesse’s method acting portrayal of the Harvard dropout-turned-web genius scored him more than a handful of nominations for Best Actor from the Screen Actor’s Guild, Golden Globes and Satellite Awards.
Although he’s been honing his craft since he was a kid, Jesse is finally landing the kind of recognition he deserves. From comedy to romance to fierce drama, Jesse can play the gamut and we can’t look away from this endearingly awkward actor who’s sitting pretty with Hollywood in the palm of his hand.
