Happy birthday to actor Jesse Eisenberg! He turns 32 today.

The actor, who fans are waiting patiently to see as iconic DC villain, Lex Luthor, in the upcoming [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870), is best known for his lead roles in two cult classic films with David Fincher's The Social Network, for which he earned both a Golden Globe and Academy Award nomination for Best Actor, and Zombieland, in which he taught us all the importance of the double tap.

Fans might be surprised to learn that Eisenberg is also an accomplished author and playwright. In 2011, he made his first Off-Broadway debut as the latter with Asuncion. He's also a contributor to The New Yorker and McSweeney's, and earlier this year, he made his author debut with Bream Gives me Hiccups, a collection of humorous short stories. He's also the creator of wordplay website, OneUpMe.

Next year looks to be a busy one for Eisenberg, with the aforementioned Batman v Superman, as well as Now You See Me 2 and an as-yet untitled Woody Allen film all in the works.

Let's hope it's a happy year for him!
