Drama To Comedy, Facebook Founder To Pizza Guy, Eisenberg Delivers

"" reports, “Even though Jesse Eisenberg has been acting in movies for only a decade, it’s fair to say he’s about to set a record for onscreen downward mobility.”

“Last year, in ‘The Social Network,’ he played Mark Zuckerberg: Harvard student, Facebook founder, future billionaire. In “30 Minutes or Less,’’ Eisenberg plays a pizza delivery guy named Nick. Nick does not even have a last name. Worse than that, he has a time bomb strapped to his chest. ‘The nature of my job in the movie is to be in a constant state of terror,’ Eisenberg cheerfully noted during a visit to the Globe last month to discuss the movie.”
