    'The Social Network' Secret Weapon Josh Pence Joins Aaron Sorkin's 'More As This Story Develops'

    Broadway Stars John Gallagher Jr and Thomas Sadoski Also On Board For HBO PilotOn the special features of the DVD for "The Social Network," actor Josh Pence admits that he was devastated when he discovered that he'd been cast in a major role in a new David Fincher film, but that his face and voice would never be heard on screen.
