Continuing to return to actors whose tongues have stood the test of that signature spitfire dialogue, Aaron Sorkin has tapped Jesse Eisenberg for a cameo on the great-looking, Sports Night–looking HBO series The Newsroom. The Social Network star "has a small voiceover role in the premiere episode that bows June 24. His voice is easily recognized as a key 'newsmaker,'" Entertainment Weekly reports. That quotey newsmaker thing is curious — is there at least a small chance Eisenberg is dusting off his Mark Zuckerberg impression? The off-camera aspect could certainly give Sorkin and co. a little extra free license to have the Zuck somehow interacting with Jeff Daniels's off-the-rails anchor.
