On Sunday, when the cameras caught him watching Team USA's gold medal win over Spain, the broadcasters thought he was actually Mark Zuckerberg. On Wednesday, he "contributed" an "essay" to Dave Eggers' "90 Days, 90 Reasons" site that couldn't have made him look more like the clueless, pretentious actor stereotype than if it had been produced by someone who disliked him and wanted to cause him harm. ("I'm traveling through Mongolia and currently staying in a yurt.") And on Friday, his film Why Stop Now? comes out.
