Although they're already shooting this, they're not done casting. Variety just has announced that Rashida Jones is the latest to join the young cast of David Fincher's The Social Network, more commonly known as the Facebook movie. They don't reveal what character Jones will be playing, however my guess is that she might be playing Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's girlfriend Priscilla Chan (seen in this photo). More on that later. In related news, ComingSoon was notified that The Social Network has been set for release on October 15th, 2010 next year by Sony. I guess it won't take too long to find out who she's playing after all!
The Social Network stars Jesse Eisenberg as Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, Andrew Garfield as the other co-founder Eduardo Saverin, Justin Timberlake as Napster founder Sean Parker, and Rooney Mara as a girl named Erica. The story follows the creation and development of the popular social networking website Facebook. I asked Carson Reeves of ScriptShadow about who he thinks Jones might be playing, and he said she might be the girlfriend of fellow co-founder Eduardo Saverin instead. Jones, recently seen in I Love You Man, is a very talented actress and I'm excited to see her join the cast of one of my most anticipated films.
