Jesse Eisenberg plays Mark Zuckerberg in the highly acclaimed movie 'The Social Network,' but it wasn't until this weekend's "Saturday Night Live" that he actually met the Facebook founder.
"They asked me to host and then after I agreed to do it they found a way for Mark Zuckerberg to come to the show," said Eisenberg, referring to the guest appearance as a "wonderful, special surprise."
During "SNL"'s opening monologue on January 29, Zuckerberg confronted his "evil twin" prompting cast member Andy Samberg to call the meeting "awk-berg."
"I was surprised when I heard that he wanted to do it," said Eisenberg, who applauded Zuckerberg's acting chops. "He was very funny," said the actor.
