After such big feat of creating Facebook, you’d think he ended everything there. Nuh-uh. He became an actor. He’s got a movie coming up, too. Here’s my proof!

Dang, he looks hot in this one.

See? 😀

No, not really. Haha. I’m not that stupid to mistake that guy as Mark Zuckerberg, founder of the our academic distraction, Facebook. But he does have a movie coming up. You’ll never guess what the movie title is. Heard of The Social Network?

The reel deal. Seem similar? (read: the hair)

Yeah. I know. At least they had the decency not to make the title a bit like “The Facebook Effect”, or something. By the way, the Zuckerberg-look-a-like is no other than Jesse Eisenberg, who also starred in Adventureland and Zombieland. Weird. Maybe he has a problem with real estate or something. 😀 But enough of that. Jesse’s going online now.

Oh yes, you don't.

Here’s a synopsis from http://www.mtv.com:

The remarkable story behind Facebook comes to the big screen with this Columbia Pictures production scripted by The West Wing’s Aaron Sorkin and directed by David Fincher (Fight Club, Zodiac). The year was 2003. Computer programming wizard Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) was a Harvard undergrad when he laid the foundation for a social networking website that would revolutionize the way we communicate. Six years later the ambitious entrepreneur made his first million — but that was just the beginning. Despite all of Zuckerberg’s wealth and success, his personal life began to suffer as he became marred in legal disputes, and discovered that many of the 500 million people he had friended during his rise to the top were eager to see him fall.

Honestly, I’ve been kind of expecting this kind of development, only it’s not a book turned into a movie (though it sort of is), it’s a phenomenon. Hollywood has acknowledged the viral x-factor in Facebook that made it such a revolutionary instrument in today’s modern communication techniques. I mean, without it, they wouldn’t be able to penetrate the circles of online fans  by making accessible fan pages and groups. This NSM tool gave them the advantage of making fans feel that they are closer to their idol actors and actresses, without spending way too much.

I’m not going to discuss the movie. It is what it is: a depiction of what Zuckerberg went through to reach the top. Very beneficial for people who want to make money by making websites. Not very good for us users due to over-saturation (refer to “About three things I’m positive about” blog post). I can already foresee the action sequences and passionate lines that may or may not have been said in boring real life. I simply wanted to make you aware that Facebook has infiltrated the movie industry. They should pay me for the promotion.

I won’t be surprised if Twitter will step up next. Imagine, they actually have to get a blue bird and make it tweet every 5 minutes.

To my OrCom batchmates, let’s watch the movie as a commemoration of our being part of the Facebook generation (and the culmination of our comm blogs!). On October 1. Yes, please? 🙂

Can you hear (the birds) tweeting?
