Andrew Garfield expected Social Network to be dull
A 2010 film version of the story behind the social-networking phenomenon that is Facebook. Jesse Eisenberg takes on the lead role of CEO Mark Zuckerberg alongside a handful of glowing young stars. Andrew Garfield acts as Zuckerberg's best friend and business confidante Eduardo Saverin while Justin Timberlake plays his rival in the character of Sean Parker ( Napster's founder). Rounding out the "Social Network" cast list are actors Rooney Mara, Joseph Mazzello, Brenda Song and Armie Hammer (who plays both Winklevoss twins).
Andrew Garfield didn't think the 'Social Network' would be an exciting movie.
The 27-year-old actor - who portrays ousted Facebook founder Eduardo Saverin in the film - was initially sceptical about the subject matter, but quickly fell in love with the project.
He explained: "When I first heard about it, I was confused, like most people.
"It doesn't conjure images of an exciting film when you hear the words 'Facebook movie'.
"But then as soon as I knew who had written the script I thought, 'Well, there must be something in it' and of course, I was proved right upon reading it."
Andrew believes part of the appeal of the movie - which follows the power struggle between the creators of Facebook - is how there are no clearly defined good and bad characters.
He explained: "What's wonderful about this film is that everyone feels they are the good guy. I don't think anyone feels they are the bad guy.
"There are no villains, no heroes, just a bunch of human beings with different opinions of the situation."
