Turns out the rumors were true. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg made an appearance on last night's Saturday Night Live, chatting it up with actor Jesse Eisenberg, Oscar-nominee for his portrayal of Zuckerberg in The Social Network.

The skit began with comedian Andy Samberg coming out in a hoodie and curly wig as Zuckerberg. Meanwhile, from backstage during the opening monologue, "Why can't I go in there? I'm the real Mark Zuckerberg," the Facebook founder said. "Those guys are such nerds - I invented poking!" When the real Zuckerberg appeared onstage, Samberg asked, "Wait, have you two not met? Awkward!"

Later on, Eisenberg shyly asked, "What did you think of the movie?" Zuckerberg replied, "It was interesting," before high-fiving and shaking the actors hand.
