Mark Zuckerberg on SNL
Jesse Eisenberg, the actor who played Mark Zuckerberg in “The Social Network,” hosted “SNL” this Saturday. Eisenberg was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor so this is a high-profile “SNL” hosting appearance. The team behind the show approached Zuckerberg about showing up alongside Eisenberg as a surprise. Zuckerberg, who was named Time magazine’s Person of the Year in 2010 appeared to express he has a sense of humor.
A triple dose of Zuckerberg is what viewers got, as Oscar nominee/guest host Eisenberg took the stage and was quickly joined by the show’s Zuckerberg impersonator, Andy Samberg. Shortly thereafter walked Mark himself. Mark showed up three times and gave Eisenberg a seemingly heartfelt hug to show all was forgiven.
