…then the hit TV show The Good Wife may want to hear from you. The legal drama is currently casting for the part of a precocious student who launches a website, becomes an unlikely billionaire, and has an unflattering movie made about him. Sound familiar?
The hit CBS show is meant to begin production in January, and it seems that soon after a special episode will (indirectly?) reference Mark Zuckerberg, and more specifically, The Social Network. The plot behind the episode is in obvious reference to Mark’s incredible journey and what happens to someone when his life suddenly achieves such notoriety that he can’t control how others portray him. In this case, “Patrick” sues some Hollywood producers who make a movie about him and the “dirty” details behind his ridiculously successful website.
It’s a smart movie for the show starring Juliana Marguilies, as The Social Network picks up six Golden Globe nominations and begins its journey to the Oscars.
The role of Patrick is still being casted, so if you’re in your mid-20s and have the angelic looks of Mr. Zuckerberg then you might want to give it a try. I wonder, wasn’t Michael Cera available?
