Actually, Miami Vice mainly, though I do enjoy Harley Davidson & The Marlboro Man quite a bit, good action flick.

This has always been my favorite movie he was in.

There's a bunch of newer actors (mostly comedic) that I really like:

Paul Rudd - this dude is funny always.

Seth Rogen - sure, he's kind of always the same dude, but he always cracks me up.

Bill Hader (SNL) - killed me in Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Jesse Eisenberg - Zombieland owes him a debt of gratitude for keeping it grounded

more later...

But he owes that debt to Michael Cera for stealing his schtick.

I don't think they are that similar, sure, they are both skinny "geeks" but the comparison ends there.

No, I think it goes deeper then that, some of the mannerisms are pretty similar, right down to some of the inflection in his voice when he speaks. Not that it makes the film any less enjoyable though.

He was very different in The Social Network, so I'm thinking some of it was direction.

That's a strong possibility, it wouldn't surprise me. I've only ever seen him in Zombieland.

I think the same thing too. They both have similiar mannerisms. When I saw Jesse in Zombieland, I thought, "What, they couldn't get Michael Cera?" Both enjoyable actors though.

True, but Jesse has been that way in other movies I've seen him in. He tuned the "Cera-likeness" down in The Social Network.

Michael Cera has been doing TV for a long time, but Eisenberg has actually been doing films longer.

I first saw him in the independent film "The Squid & The Whale" in 2005 and that was 2 years prior to Superbad and Juno (which is what catapulted Cera to stardom).

I think it's a coincidence.
