NBC Mistakes Jesse Eisenberg for Mark Zuckerberg at Olympic Games

Posted: August 13th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
NBC Mistakes Jesse Eisenberg for Mark Zuckerberg at Olympic GamesSubmit Comment
Jesse Eisenberg portrayed Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in David Fincher's 2010 film "The Social Network." The casting was apparently so good that NBC can't tell the difference between the actor and the internet billionaire.

During the network's coverage of the Olympic Games, NBC's announcer Bob Fitzgerald spotted Eisenberg during the USA vs Spain gold medal basketball game, but identified him as Zuckerberg, stating: "Every executive of note it seems worldwide is attending these games."

Of course there are plenty of explanations for why Fitzgerald made that mistake. Maybe he thought he was watching "The Social Network" instead of a basketball game. Or maybe Eisenberg was quietly doing his best Zuckerberg impression when the cameras spotted him. After all, he earned an Oscar nomination for his performance in the movie.

Or perhaps NBC is simply incapable of embarrassing themselves.

Ever since the fall of Heroes in its second season...

Arnold and Vin Diesel were in the crowd too. Arnold looked fine but Diesel looked like a reject from a bad Jersey Shores spinoff. Yeah despite the low frigid temps outside and the perfect indoor lighting Vinny D managed to stay Jerseylicious rocking the wifebeater and $1000 shades. He was doing anything he could to protect his tough guy Hollywood image even though he obviously brought 2 huge Guido bodyguards to the stadium for protection. What a fruitcake.

Or maybe, just maybe, some people are too damned stupid to a) differentiate between fantasy and reality and b) see a).
