Joseph Mazzello and Jesse Eisenberg in The Social Network

Ok, so everyone is banging on about The Social Network at the moment. And with good reason, it’s an awesome film, the story is relevant and intelligently told, the three leads (Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake) give excellent performances, and of course it’s directed by David Fincher and written by Aaron Sorkin. But what people aren’t talking about,  what they should be talking about is the fact that that’s the kid from Jurassic Park!!

Sometimes I used to wonder what happened to little Joseph Mazzello. He was in Radio Flyer and then that little dinosaur film that a few people saw, and then he grew up… Which is always difficult for cute kid actors. It’s a bit hard to get work when you’re not so cute anymore. But little Joseph is all growdsed up! And to be honest, I didn’t even recognise him! And I always recognise people!

It wasn’t until the credits were rolling and I saw his name I went, wait a minute… If it isn’t little Timmy the human piece of toast!

So take my advice. Go see The Social Network, and in between thinking, “That Andrew Garfield is a bit of a spunk”, and marvelling at how the filmmakers managed to make computer coding interesting, spare a thought for the reemergence of J.Mo. Let’s hope we see more of him soon!
