Written by Michael Lambarde on Jan. 29, 2011

Rumors are swirling that Mark Zuckerberg — one of the founders of the second largest website on the internet, Facebook — will make a cameo on NBC’s late-night series Saturday Night Live tonight. Ever since the rumor emerged that the Facebook founder will be appearing on the show this weekend, people have become a lot more excited to watch tonight’s episode, whether the rumor turns out to be true or not.

Jesse Eisenberg, who played the Facebook owner in the cult film and the biggest motion picture of the year, “The Social Network” has been assigned to be one of the guest hosts in the show. Sources say that Mark Zuckerberg might also make a cameo along with his on screen name sake. It is said that Mark Zuckerberg would be poking fun at himself and prove to the world that his sense of humor is not as dry as others think it to be. Initial reports surfaced that the young billionaire entrepreneur was not too happy with the way his character was sketched in the film. He said that he was misrepresented by the director and therefore ended up being a bit offended after the film was released. However, now that he has become a household name, followed by the success of the film, he definitely wants to get more popular and media friendly.

However, his appearance on “Saturday Night Live” has still not been confirmed. The representatives of the show refused to comment, while another source said that SNL prefers to throw the things directly to the audiences with elements of spontaneity and surprises. According to him, nothing is assured by the show as it is broadcast live. When a reputed news source tried to contact Mark Zuckerberg’s representative, he was not available for further comments.
