After a successful 2009 that included Adventureland and Zombieland -- two excellent films -- Jesse Eisenberg is poised to have another terrific year, and his upcoming slate contains no evidence to the contrary. He will appear shortly alongside Michael Douglas in Solitary Man, as well as star in the thriller Kill Your Darlings with Bright Star's Ben Whishaw. But, without a doubt, his 2010 role with the most buzz is that of Mark Zuckerberg in David Fincher's The Social Network.

As far as Holy Rollers goes, Eisenberg could very well be playing his most unusual role to date. His character is Sam Gold, a Hasidic Jew from Brooklyn who is lured by his brother into an underworld revolving around an Israeli drug ring. Eisenberg's co-stars include Justin Bartha (National Treasure, The Hangover), Ari Graynor, Danny A. Abeckaser, and Q-Tip.

Holy Rollers, directed by Kevin Asch, is set for release on May 21st.
