Zuckerberg Appearson “SNL” Alongside His Cinematic Counterpart


Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg made a “surprise” appearance on Saturday Night Live, joking with the actor who played him in The Social Network, Jesse Eisenberg.
Viewers got a triple dose of Zuckerberg as Oscar nominee/guest host Eisenberg took the stage, quickly joined by the show’s Zuckerberg impersonator, Andy Samberg. Then, out walked Zuckerberg himself. When asked how he liked The Social Network, Zuck called it “interesting.”
As the rumors we heard Friday suggested, the goal was to show Zuckerberg’s sense of humor, and he did an excellent job, appearing to have a great time in the spotlight at NBC’s Studio 8H in New York.
Mark showed up three times on the show — a brief backstage bit with Executive Producer Lorne Michaels, the on-stage shtick with Eisenberg and Samberg you’ll see in the video below, and the obligatory SNL goodbye waltz, where Mark gave Eisenberg a seemingly heartfelt hug to show all was forgiven.
Watch the clip for yourself and then let us know in the comments what you think.
