Justin Timberlake to Star in Facebook Movie

Have you ever been updating your status on Facebook, or confirming your brother's girlfriend's mother's friend request, when the thought occurred to you: "This would make a great movie!"

David Fincher thinks so, too. The director of such films as Fight Club and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (not to mention lots of Paula Abdul videos) is slated to direct The Social Network, a film based on the true story of Facebook founders Sean Parker and Mark Zuckerberg.

Last night it was confirmed that Justin Timberlake will play Parker, while Zuckerberg will be portrayed by Adventureland's Jesse Eisenberg. (Earlier rumors had Michael Cera and Shia Labeouf in the running.)

Curious how the actors stack up to the real dudes? Here's a photo comparison.
