Hold your breath for it is none other than actor Jesse Eisenberg and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Yes the two who appeared on “Saturday Night Live” last night have apparently bonded well over the show. Why not after all the 27 year old actor himself has played the role of the Facebook founder and CEO on the big screen in “The Social Network” which is about the giant social networking site.

Jesse Eisenberg was the host for the night on the popular television show. While Jesse Eisenberg was about to start with his opening monologue for the night he was interrupted by the “Saturday Night Live” castmember Andy Samberg who frequently parodied the Facebook founder in skits. As the host and the cast member engaged in some typical Mark Zuckerberg antiques, the camera gradually unfolded the mystery focusing on the real Facebook founder who was standing behind. Mark Zuckerberg soon pleaded to “Saturday Night Live” boss Lorne Michaels for letting him go to the stage calling the two standing on the stage nerds. As the Facebook CEO took to the stage, funnyman Andy Samberg left at once.

Despite the award-winning “The Social Network” both Jesse Eisenberg and Mark Zuckerberg claimed that they have never met each other before. Mark Zuckerberg who had initially called the movie inaccurate last night said that he had seen the film and it was interesting. This comment coming from the Facebook boss himself was perhaps the biggest compliment for Jesse Eisenberg who has been nominated in the Oscars for his brilliant performance in the movie.
