Play in the script for Jesse Eisenberg

Off-Broadway play in the script for Eisenberg

Jesse Eisenberg, the Oscar-nominated star of "The Social Network," will make his professional New York debut as a playwright with an Off-Broadway production of "Asuncion" in the fall, says The Hollywood Reporter. The play centers on two friends who view themselves as open-minded liberals -- one blogs about American imperialism; the other is finishing a PhD in black studies -- and how those self-perceptions are challenged when a young Filipina woman becomes their new roommate. Eisenberg also will appear in the play.
