At the age of 27, Jesse Eisenberg tackled the role of a lifetime. Playing Mark Zuckerberg in "The Social Network," Eisenberg racked up dozens of nominations and awards. But his newest project is off-Broadway at the tiny Cherry Lane Theater here in New York. Jesse Eisenberg wrote and is starring in a new play called "Asuncion." The play explores what happens when a Filipina woman moves in with two ultra-liberal young men. Eisenberg plays Edgar, a bright, young man obsessed with saving the world.
