Jesse Adam Eisenberg (born October 5, 1983) is an American actor, playwright, author, and humorist. He made his television debut with the short-lived comedy-drama series Get Real (1999–2000). Following his first leading role in the comedy-drama film Roger Dodger (2002), he appeared in the drama film The Emperor's Club (2002), the psychological thriller The Village (2004), the comedy-drama The Squid and the Whale (2005), the dark comedy The Living Wake (2007) and the drama The Education of Charlie Banks (2007). In 2007, Eisenberg won the Vail Film Festival Rising Star Award for his role as Mills Joaquin in The Living Wake.

In 2009, he starred in the comedy-drama Adventureland and the horror comedy Zombieland, which earned Eisenberg critical acclaim. He then played Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network (2010), for which he received BAFTA Award, Golden Globe, and Academy Award nominations in the Best Actor category. He also starred in Holy Rollers (2010), which was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. In October 2011, Eisenberg made his playwriting debut Off-Broadway in Rattlestick Playwrights Theater's production of Asuncion, presented at Cherry Lane Theatre.

Since then, he has gone on to voice the main character, Blu, a male Spix's macaw, in the animated films Rio (2011) and Rio 2 (2014), and starred in the action-comedy 30 Minutes or Less (2011) and the magician caper film Now You See Me (2013). He re-teamed with Kristen Stewart for the action-comedy film American Ultra (2015), and will portray Superman's archenemy and heir to the LexCorp fortune, Alexander "Lex" Luthor, Jr, opposite Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, slated for a March 2016 release.

Eisenberg has contributed pieces to The New Yorker and McSweeney's magazines. He has written and starred in three plays for the New York stage (as of 2015): Asuncion, The Revisionist, and The Spoils. The most recent of his plays, The Spoils, directed by Scott Elliott and also starring Kunal Nayyar, Michael Zegen, Erin Darke, and Annapurna Sriram, was the winner of The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation Theatre Visions Fund Award.

On September 8, 2015, Eisenberg's first book, Bream Gives Me Hiccups, a collection of short humor pieces, was released and has received generally positive reviews.

Biography

Eisenberg is fond of cats and has been involved in fostering animals. He is a vegetarian, and was vegan for a short period of time. He has been associated with Farm Sanctuary and has presented at several of their galas. Eisenberg's short story "Marv Albert is My Therapist" appeared in The New Yorker in 2013. Eisenberg has written other short humor pieces for The New Yorker's "Shouts & Murmurs" column, as well as for McSweeney's. These pieces, as well as others, were included in Eisenberg's debut novel, Bream Gives Me Hiccups, which was released on September 8, 2015. He dated Director of Events and Special Projects for the Urban Arts Partnership in New York and actress Anna Strout from 2009-2013. In 2013, he began dating his The Double co-star Mia Wasikowska.

While filming The Hunting Party in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2006, Eisenberg came up with an idea for a simple wordplay website, OneUpMe, where people could respond to a daily wordplay topic in an attempt to "one-up" each other in the cleverness of their response. He turned to his first cousin, Eric Fisher, who, incidentally, most recently was the Social Design evangelist at Facebook, to create the site. The userbase is built solely off Facebook.

Eisenberg has obsessive–compulsive disorder and is open about it. He said of his condition: "I touch the tips of my fingers in a weird way; I don't step on cracks; if I'm going onto a new surface - be it carpet to concrete, or concrete to wood, or wood to concrete, any new surface - I have to make sure all parts of my feet touch the ground equally before I touch that new thing. So I'll often hesitate before walking into a new room."

In September 2015, Eisenberg announced that, starting November, he would match donations made to Middle Way House, a domestic violence shelter in Bloomington, Indiana, up to $100,000 through the end of 2015. All contributions made will go towards the organization's mortgage payment fund that will be matched by a committee lead by Eisenberg. Founded in 1971, Middle Way provides shelter for women and children fleeing violence at home. "It's an incredible collective," Eisenberg told a reporter. "It's the kind of place where the residents go through their wonderful program and end up working there. It's saved so many lives."

Avec la mort de Superman, Amanda Waller, qui dirige le programme ARGUS, craint l'apparition du prochain méta-humain qui pourrait attaquer l'humanité. Pour prévenir cette possibilité, elle fait adopter le projet Task Force X (Force Spéciale X), visant à utiliser une équipe de criminels aux capacités hors-normes pour répondre aux menaces, de façon non officielle. Elle a déjà plusieurs noms sur sa liste, comme le tireur d'élite Floyd Lawton / « Deadshot », capturé par Batman en lui rappelant la vie qu'il fait mener à sa fille Zoe ; la psychopathe Harley Quinn, psychologue tombée sous le charme du Joker, arrêtée par Batman alors qu'elle était coincée dans une voiture qui coulait dans une rivière ; le tueur monstrueux Waylon Jones, surnommé « Killer Croc » ; Digger Harkness, un voleur australien capturé par Flash alors qu'il dérobait des diamants ; et El Diablo, un gangster mexicain doué de pyrotechnie qui s'est rendu lui-même après avoir involontairement brûlé sa femme et ses enfants. Elle a déjà recruté le Colonel Rick Flag, soldat émérite. Quand Amanda présente le projet au Général Edwards, elle lui montre aussi les pouvoirs de l'Enchanteresse, un être mystique qui habite dans le corps de l'archéologue June Moon. Amanda Waller arrive à la contrôler car elle détient le cœur de la sorcière, et elle s'est arrangée pour faire en sorte que Rick Flag et June Moon deviennent amants afin de manipuler le soldat.

His previous documentary about military-industrial complex titled The Power Elite was based on C. Wright Mills's sociological theory.

After finishing a lecture at the college where he works, Josh is approached by Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby Massey (Amanda Seyfried), a young couple who invite him and Cornelia out to dinner, the former claiming to be a fan of both his works and the works of his accomplished documentary filmmaker father-in-law, Leslie Breitbart (Charles Grodin). Josh is immediately awestruck by Jamie and Darby's non-conservative outlook on life, and he and Cornelia begin spending more time with them and indulging in their activities.

Four gifted street magicians—J. Daniel "Danny" Atlas, Merritt McKinney, Henley Reeves, and Jack Wilder—are brought together by an unknown benefactor and, one year later, are performing in Las Vegas as "The Four Horsemen," sponsored by insurance magnate Arthur Tressler. For the finale of their first show, they declare they will rob a bank, and invite audience member Étienne Forcier, an account holder at the Crédit Républicain de Paris, to do it. Forcier is apparently teleported to his bank in France, where he activates an air duct that vacuums up the money and showers it onto the Las Vegas crowd. Upon the discovery that the money really is missing from the bank vault, FBI agent Dylan Rhodes is called to investigate the theft and is partnered with Interpol agent Alma Dray. They arrest the Horsemen, but are forced to release them due to lack of evidence.
