Though Mark Zuckerberg got the credit for Facebook, their alleged idea, the Winklevoss twins (or, as they were called in The Social Network, the Winklevii) are still making their mark on Silicon Valley. The TV show, that is.

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, who are now major Bitcoin investors, will play themselves in the upcoming season of HBO’s Silicon Valley. It is unclear at this point how their characters will intersect with the Pied Piper guys, but we do know that the Winklevii aren’t the only real-life tech industry figures slated to appear on the show. Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel will make an appearance in season 2, and last season, tech journalist Kara Swisher, Google chairman Eric Schmidt, and TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington all played themselves.
