Jesse Eisenberg is the epitome of geek chic and the 2010 film, The Social Network proved he's obtained leading man status. Now the lovable actor is appearing in two upcoming films. The first is the latest European romantic comedy from Woody Allen, which stars Alec Baldwin, Penelope Cruz, and Ellen Page. To Rome with Love will hopefully continue Allen's winning streak of thought provoking films such as Midnight in Paris. Eisenberg seems to perfectly compliment the Oscar winning director's awkwardly sketched characters.

Eisenberg also appears in Free Samples as a (you guessed it) sweet and crushable gentleman that is difficult to resist. The quirky indie takes place largely with-in the confines of an ice cream truck. It follows a law school drop out (Jess Weixler) who's nursing a hangover and finding it difficult to recall a one night tryst she had with a mystery man (Eisenberg). The film is set to make it's debut at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Not only is Eisenberg a bonafide movie star, he's also a playwright. His off-Broadway work, Asuncion debuted last year. If that's not enough, he's quite the book worm. The New York hipster has been attending The New School on and off as a student of contemporary architecture.

The actor is currently shooting Now You See Me, with Isla Fisher, and it's clear that we'll see plenty more of Eisenberg on the big screen. Here are 5 adorable photos of the star!
