FB movie - Andrew Garfield as Eduardo Saverin

Recently, I have read Accidental Billionaire by Ben Mezrich. A story about founding of FB told by Eduardo Saverin former co-founder kicked by Mark Zuckerberg.
Great book! Describes founding road of FB from first Harvard days to summer in California and split between Eduardo and Mark. Many rock star VC are mentioned in book including Sean Parker, a founder of Napster.
Looks like honest story, but lacking Zuckerbergs view since he did not want talk with Ben Mezrich.

FB is excited 300 million people this month and from business side it would be blast to create Hollywood version of Accidental Billionaire. And its in making. Movie version of book has awesome cast staring Jesse Eisenberg (Mark Zuckerberg), Justin Timberlake (Sean Parker) and Andrew Garfield as Eduardo Saverin.

Somehow I feel that injustice has been done to Eduardo Saverin ( and not just me - take look at this Larry Chang post ), even dough he made disastrous mistakes. He owned 30% of company that has been diluted to almost nothing through rapid share issuing. Read the book for more or wait for movie.

Looking at previous roles of Andrew Garfield and especially this scene from Boy A, he looks like prefect for Eduardo role :)
