On SNL, Mark Zuckerberg meets Jesse Eisenberg

By Jen Chaney

In an appearance that generated plenty of advance buzz, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg stood side by side last night with SNL host Jesse Eisenberg, attempting to demonstrate that he totally has a sense of humor about looking like a weasel in a film that stands among the front runners for Oscar's best picture.

Was he successful? More or less, although it's clear that Zuckerberg definitely should hang on to his day job as head of Facebook; his line delivery probably did not convince Lorne Michaels that he should regularly appear in sketches alongside Kristen Wiig. But he showed up on SNL with a smile on his face, made it clear he has no hard feelings about the success of "The Social Network" and added another degree of cultural relevancy to a movie that now must persuade Oscar voters that it is, indeed, the film of the year.

If you missed the appearance, here's your chance to watch; Zuckerberg shows up midway through Eisenberg's opening monologue.
