Jesse Eisenberg, a Best Actor Oscar nominee for his role as Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network, will take the stage tonight to host Saturday Night Live. But his party may be crashed by the real deal – the man he impersonated – Mark Zuckerberg himself. Fans of SNL and The Social Network alike are abuzz over the potential meeting of the two minds.

The New York Post is suggesting that Zuckerberg wants to appear on the show to shed his previously uptight nature about his silver screen portrayal. A source told the Post he wants “to show he has a sense of humor.”
Zuckerberg’s appearance, if it happens, will be a gloriously awkward union. Better yet, bring in Andy Samberg – who impersonates Zuckerberg on SNL (and whose impression Zuckerberg said he enjoys) – to make it a veritable slam-dunk of nerdiness.
