Three ‘Bergs all in a Row: Zuckerberg, Eisenberg & Samberg on SNL
The real Mark Zuckerberg (he of mega-wealth Facebook founding fame) met his cinematic counterpart Jesse Eisenberg (he of nominated for an academy award for playing Mark Zuckerberg in “The Social Network” fame) together with resident Saturday Night Live cast member Andy Samberg (he of “All hail the Zuck!!” SNL fame).
The three ‘Bergs came face to face on the set of Saturday Night Live, with the real Zuckerberg seemingly surprising his two doppelgangers with his appearance on the show. Eisenberg seems genuinely surprised and flustered by the Zucks’ presence, but gets back on track pretty quickly. Zuckerberg, it seems, used the opportunity to show that, contrary to the portrayal of him in the movie, he does in fact have a sense of humour and is not a total offbeat nerd.
In the clip, Eisenberg asks if Zuckerberg actually ever saw the movie, and if so, what he though about it. Zucks’ response? “Yes I did see it. I thought it was ‘interesting’!”
Best line: “Those guys are such nerds! Come on, I invented poking!” – the real Mark Zuckerberg.
