Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Aaron Sorkin y Justin Timberlake ofrecieron una rueda de prensa en Londres para promocionar su nueva película «The Social Network», el 7 de octubre. El actor habló acerca de su interés por el papel, de la audición, del guión del filme y de los adictos a Facebook entre otras cosas.
The Social Network is a classic tale of ambition, greed, ego and self-destruction.
Director David Fincher and writer Aaron Sorkin created an epic story about 19-year-old Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg (played by Jesse Eisenberg), who figured out that people love to share the most mundane details of their lives.
The idea comes together while screwing around on his computer one night in 2003, drunkenly miffed after his girlfriend dumped him. At least, that’s how the story goes; Facebook itself calls the movie fiction.
Justin Timberlake who stars the charismatic Sean Parker explained why he was so keen to take the part: «Yeah, I saw a lot of layers in this character and I think .. it’s a, all these characters are incredibly complex, brilliant people and with that brilliance comes a lot of eccentricities so I was, I auditioned for the part a couple of times and not so much threw my hat in the ring, but kicked the door down to play this part.»
The Napster co-founder encourages Zuckerberg’s ambition, as well as his darker instincts, but Timberlake said he didn’t find it difficult to empathise with his character.
«I spent so much time playing this character, I find a lot of sympathy for Sean’s situation in the film. I think they’re all going to be OK, » he said.
«We’re telling a story about a moment in time. This isn’t a biopic, this is a moment in time and you spend so much time defending the character and no matter if you see him as the hero or the villain in the story, like Mikey said before, I don’t know if that’s, I don’t know if there’s a real hero. That’s the beauty of how the story plays itself out that you do believe in what you’re doing and so, and that was sort of my process,» he added.
Jesse Eisenberg, who portrays Mark Zuckerberg said he felt a lot of responsibility in playing his role.
«Yeah, Mark is both publicly enigmatic as well as arguably the most accessible person in the world because he’s created this thing that allows us to all be as accessible as we would like to be. And so in a way it’s a very interesting character. There’s a lot to find out about him and also the more you find out about him, the more mysterious he may become. But Aaron Sorkin is credited with creating this wonderful character that is a character in a movie that is based on a real person and my primary responsibility was to play that version of that character.»
Fincher cuts back and forth between the creation of what we now know to be the juggernaut of Facebook and the depositions in two lawsuits against Zuckerberg. One is from a group of Harvard classmates, twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss (both played by Armie Hammer) and Divya Narendra (Max Minghella) who say Zuckerberg agreed to help them establish their own on-campus social network, then stole his idea and formed his own.
The other lawsuit comes from Zuckerberg’s former business partner and only close friend back then, Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield), who says he was cheated out of millions after providing the earliest financial backing.
The film is based on Ben Mezrich’s book The Accidental Billionaires, adapted by Sorkin into a 162-page screenplay packed neatly into a two-hour film.
