NBC thinks actor who played Mark Zuckerberg is Mark Zuckerberg

Fourth-Place Medal

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg was not at the gold-medal basketball game between the United States and Spain, but the actor who portrayed him in the hit movie, "The Social Network" was. NBC's basketball announcer couldn't tell the difference.

When cameras showed Jesse Eisenberg watching the game, play-by-play guy Bob Fitzgerald said (as transcribed by SB Nation): "I know I'm gonna put that picture on Facebook. We've got every executive of note worldwide, it seems, attending these games."

Zuckerberg's real-life foils, the Winklevoss twins, competed in the 2008 Olympics. It would have been interesting to see whether Fitzgerald would have referred to them as Armie Hammer.

Tomb raider Lara Croft and fight club devotee Tyler Durden* were also at the Olympics, but largely stayed out of the view of cameras.
