The Social Network cast is official

Their names have been floating in the rumour pool since the start of the month, but now it's official - Justin Timberlake, Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield have been cast in The Social Network.

Way back on 4th September, we reported word that the three were being lined up by David Fincher to play the leads in the film, which traces the drama behind the creation of Facebook.

Now Variety is finally reporting that Sony has tapped Eisenberg to play Facebook chief and co-inventor Mark Zuckerberg, Timberlake as Napster co-founder and Facebook president Sean Parker and Garfield as Eduardo Saverin, who fell out with Zuckerberg over cash from the site.

Fincher is getting ready to shoot next month in Boston, before the film's production shifts to Los Angeles…
