Justin Timberlake, Jesse Eisenberg, and Andrew Garfield Cast in Facebook Movie The Social Network

Justin Timberlake and Jesse Eisenberg Cast in Facebook Movie

Look for some new status updates: Justin Timberlake and Jesse Eisenberg have been cast in The Social Network as the founders of Facebook.

Eisenberg has taken the role of Mark Zuckerberg, after both Shia LaBeouf and Michael Cera were rumored for it (Geek totally called it, btw!) Justin Timberlake and Andrew Garfield will play the two other Facebook founders; Timberlake is taking on Sean Parker (also founder of Napster), and Garfield is playing Eduardo Saverin.

I think Eisenberg is an excellent choice to play Zuckerberg — he has the right resemblance and can play awkward authentically. Timberlake is kind of a surprise here, but the mix so far of inspired casting, Aaron Sorkin producing, and David Fincher directing is making this movie quite the interesting project.

good, i really like Jesse after seeing Adventureland. he has that same awkward/nerdy/adorable appeal that michael cera has, but at least Jesse is my age!i really liked JT in Alpha Dog, so maybe he will be good in this too.

I've met Zuckerberg. The resemblance is uncanny (except that Eisenburg is way better looking, but I'm sure they'll fix that for the movie).
