But will he play Jesse Eisenberg?

With Eisenberg, who played Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in the hit movie The Social Network, hosting this weekend's Saturday Night Live, rumors abound that Zuckerberg himself will appear on the show. According to the New York Post, Zuckerberg wants to show that he has a sense of humor by making fun of himself in a sketch.

The Social Network is in the midst of a furious campaign in the competitive Best Picture category at the Academy Awards. Sources say producer Scott Rudin is "hellbent on getting the Best Picture Oscar. He's doing everything to campaign. Getting Eisenberg to host SNL in itself is a coup, but to get Zuckerberg up there next to him is an even bigger achievement."

The movie is nominated for eight awards, including a Best Actor nod for Eisenberg, Best Director for David Fincher and Best Screenplay for Aaron Sorkin. —ISHITA SINGH
