Seth Rogen may soon have his big dramatic break, perhaps joining Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, as Jobs’ Apple co-founder. A source confirmed to EW that Rogen is in talks to play Steve Wozniak. Sony had no comment.
Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin recently confirmed that Christian Bale is set to play Jobs, saying, “We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale.” The biopic, which Danny Boyle is attached to direct, is based on Walter Isaacson’s biography of Jobs. Sorkin has said that the film will take place in three scenes, each before a product launch.
Wozniak, who was critical of that other Jobs movie, was hired by Sony as a “tutor” on the project, Sorkin said in 2012. Rogen will soon appear with James Franco in The Interview, the comedy that has drawn the ire of North Korea.
