DailyBeast.com: Before They Were Nominated

Jesse Eisenberg

Now: Mark Zuckerberg, "The Social Network"



Then: Hallie Kate Eisenberg’s older brother



Jesse Eisenberg hasn’t always been the most famous actor in his family. His little sister, Hallie Kate, was one of the most recognizable faces of the late 1990s as “the Pepsi Girl,” and adorable child star in "Paulie," "Beautiful," and "Bicentennial Man." But while his sister was showing off her dimples to the world, the elder Eisenberg was shooting the short-lived Fox dramedy, "Get Real," which also starred this year’s Oscar co-host Anne Hathaway. A decade later, Hallie Kate was focusing on graduating from her New Jersey high school, giving Jesse the opportunity to stock his résumé with a slew of indie roles, including "Zombieland," "Adventureland," and the land-less "Squid and the Whale." Eisenberg’s performances led him to star as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in one of this year’s Oscar frontrunners, "The Social Network." Despite his recent praise, the curly haired actor claims he’s quite average. “I'm not famous,” he told People magazine. “Not like Tom Cruise.”
