To the world, he is perhaps “the kid who played that Facebook guy” or “the dude from that zombie movie who got nominated for an Oscar.” To me, he was an admirably gifted young actor whom I had discovered in 2005 upon my first viewing of “The Squid and the Whale” and now has grown to be one of the most kind-hearted and impactful people I am blessed to have had enter my life. Wittingly or unwittingly, Mr. Eisenberg (it feels strange to dub him by first and last and too pretentious to label him “Jesse” in print, so I will resort to this moniker for the interim) has changed my life. Inwardly and outwardly, I am a different person from having lived 24 days of rehearsal and 68 performances as Asuncion. From generously singling me out (and all the more generous for being seemingly sincere) during his Jimmy Fallon interview, to the moral support and care he provided me as a human being (homeboy actually biked all the way to 106th Street to make sure I’d gotten into my apartment comfortably upon arrival. Who does that?!), I can attest to the fact that he is as good as they come. Mr. Eisenberg, you are a fine young actor, but more importantly, you are a fine young man.
