Jesse Eisenberg Talks Zuckerberg on 'Tonight Show'You'd think that everyone knows Jesse Eisenberg is an actor who played Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in 'The Social Network.' Even if you're less culturally savvy than business-minded, maybe you'd know Zuckerberg's face from the cover of 'Time,' when he was named Person of the Year.

But a particular Blackberry exec mistook Eisenberg for the real deal, he said on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). He approached the actor in a coffee shop and asked if Eisenberg was still affiliated with Blackberry.

"I said yes, because I'm an owner of that particular brand of phone," the actor explained. Then the man started talking business, and it was clear he was referring to Facebook's affiliation with the company. "[Even] if I was the president of Facebook, would I actually want to conduct a business meeting with this random stranger in a coffee shop?" wondered Eisenberg.
