Who better to bring life to the character he wrote then himself!

Jesse Eisenberg will be making his professional New York debut as a playwright this fall when his play, Asuncion, opens Off Broadway. The show follows two friends who see themselves as "open-minded liberals," until their views are challenged by a young Filipina woman who becomes their new roommate.

Jesse will also appear in the play, which opens October 27th, as one of the lead liberals.

Inneresting change of pace for you, Jesse. We're very impressed with how multi-faceted you are and we hope this show garners the kind of success you want it to. Maybe not as much as The Social Network, but definitely more than Adventureland.

Break a leg!

    As a fan, I am jumping for joy over this news! He's been wanting to get his plays he's written (yes, plays! He's got one more play and a musical) off the ground for some time now and this is a wonderful opportunity for him. Hopefully this will be successful so the others he'd written will see the light of day as well. Go Jesse!
