Facebook: The Movie

PLEASE … let this be true! Pete Cashmore on Mashable blogged this morning about the possibility of a Facebook movie. It gets better: Michael Cera is being looked at to play Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

This makes me giddy for a number of reasons, though I’m not sure which is the most delightful.

For one, any news that gives me an excuse to re-watch the hilarious MySpace: The Movie is an automatic winner. Watch it now, even if you have already seen it.

Two… The film is apparently not very flattering for Zuckerberg and his mega social networking site. Don’t get me wrong. I think it’s a good thing that somebody my age is making billions, but everything about Zuck rubs me the wrong way. His flip-flopping act on FB’s Terms of Service was just sad, he usually seems a little in over his head (See: “F8 Keynote,”) and my current ‘fun-employment’ situation makes me especially jealous.

Finally – and this is probably the driving force behind this post – Michael Cera looks like and acts exactly like my friend Brody. His winning nervous mannerisms and dry wit are eerily similar to that of my buddy, and I find myself rooting for Cera’s career so I can tease Brody (real name: Broderick) for many years to come.
