Jesse Eisenberg is that dude. Beginning with scene-stealing roles in Roger Dodger and The Squid and the Whale and moving through a lead role in this past spring's Adventureland, he's quickly carved out a niche as Hollywood's go-to white nerd, but truth is, he's way cooler than you, or us (starting with the fact that he doesn't live in L.A.). His latest flick, Zombieland, opens today, and Jesse graces the pages of our October/November issue, offering five contradictions from his life for our My Complex column. Earlier in the summer, we caught up with him at a pay-by-the-hour motel in Queens (Jesse rode his bike), where he spoke on his college course work, his fear of Hollywood, and his Broadway aspirations. Check out the interview and video below..
