What's Next for Him: The viewing public is going to be getting an Eisenberg overdose in 2009-10. Two of his films are in post-production: 'Holly Rollers' and 'Camp Hope'. And the sure-to-be-a-hit 'Zombieland' puts Eisenberg in a co-starring role with Woody Harrelson, and they go around killing zombies with flair, gusto, and witty guy banter. This may be Eisenberg's big break-out role - and judging by opening weekend sales, he'll be well-known in no time.


Trivia: His mother is a professional clown who performed at children's birthday parties for 20 years. His little sister, Hallie Kate Eisenberg, is a former child actress who appeared in a classic Pepsi commercial (you know the one...trust us), but she opted to leave the business. Jesse might eventually leave the acting world as well, since he's expressed desires to write for stage and screen.
