Jesse Eisenberg’s recent role as legendary mime Marcel Marceau in “Resistance” landed him the Voice of Humanity award at the annual J100 gala on Tuesday.
Eisenberg appeared in an interview with the film’s director and producer, Jonathan Jakubowicz, and said playing Marceau was more rewarding than his Lex Luthor or Mark Zuckerberg characters in past blockbusters.
“Let’s see, one is hated by comic book fans. One is hated by people with internet accounts. And one is beloved by everyone on earth, so the one I would open any kind of conversation with is Marceau,” he said.
Eisenberg added that portraying Marceau — who worked with the French Resistance to save Jewish children during World War II — had a profound impact on his own identity.
“Every other job I’ve done has some kind of material response, and this was me purely helping out with no ego boost. And it’s the most relaxing, enjoyable experience I’ve had in my life,” he said.
The event — which celebrates 100 people who have positively influenced Jewish life — also honored human rights activist and chess grandmaster Gary Kasparov. Sir Ben and Lady Daniela Kingsley, Sharon Stone and Bernard-Henri Levy were surprise speakers.
