Jesse Eisenberg

Return of the Skeet! Sorry to be withholding the man-candy for so long. To be honest, it’s been a bit of a dry summer for hot dudes in the spotlight who aren’t also complete toolbags.

But hark! Jesse Eisenberg. He’s hardly new to the scene, but to be honest, I was very on-the-fence about this guy. He seems to know what he’s doing and is a solid actor, but I just wasn’t sure I thought he was all that attractive. I first spotted him in The Squid & The Whale, Noah Baumbach’s version of a Wes Anderson movie about a semi-dysfunctional upper-middle-class Brooklyn family in the midst of divorce. Jesse was the older son in the family, but still seemed like too much of an awkward half-teen to warrant skeet status.

Since then, however, he’s grown up and seems to be taking indie Hollywood by the balls, with roles in Adventureland and, um, some other stuff too. Eisenberg’s resume is pretty packed and fairly impressive, with a wide variety of roles in good, often indie, films. Career-wise, this guy is everything Michael Cera could’ve or should’ve been.

And while at first I wasn’t sure if I could commit to theoretically boning the guy should the opportunity arise,  I saw the trailer for Zombieland, in which he plays a shy and somewhat charming dude who kicks the shit out of zombies all the while maintaining his sensitive side. Talk about HOT.

This movie has a real chance of being totally fucking awesome, Shaun of the Dead style, or it might be really shitty (like most things Woody Harrelson is involved in). To be honest, zombies are so 2006, but I’m willing to give this thing a chance. And I’m willing to give Jessse Eisenberg a chance. In my pants. Call me.

  • […] When the zombocalypse basically turns the globe into a clusterfuck of unexplained consequences, Jesse Eisenberg, playing the stereotypical geeky/cute/feminine male is one of the few left standing. Following rules like #2 (Check seatbelts), #17(Don’t be a hero), and #32 (Enjoy the Little Things), he’s able to be one of the last few Americans surviving. Which is lucky for us, because we really like him. […]
