    Mark Zuckerberg may be able to deny his detractors the last laugh after all.

    The Facebook founder is rumored to be making a forthcoming appearance on Saturday Night Live alongside Jesse Eisenberg, the man who portrayed him in the hit movie, The Social Network, reports the New York Post.

    Eisenberg has already signed on to host, but Zuckerberg is still mulling over the opportunity. He's voiced concerns about how he came off in the movie, and would like to do a guest spot on SNL to show he has a "sense of humor," according to a source cited by the Post.

    Despite Zuckerberg's complaints, The Social Network has been a critical and commerical success, capturing the Golden Globe for best picture and an Oscar nod for the same, and has grossed over $200 million worldwide.

    Eisenberg will appear on the January 29th episode of SNL with Nicki Minaj as the musical guest.
