'Steve Jobs' (finally) finalizes its cast
The long stalled biopic Steve Jobs has begun principal photography after locking down its cast, Universal announced Tuesday.
The project, directed by Danny Boyle and scripted by Aaron Sorkin, officially has a finalized cast roster.
The ensemble will be comprised of Michael Fassbender as Jobs, Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as former Macintosh marketing boss Joanna Hoffman, Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley, Katherine Waterston as Jobs’ ex-girlfriend Chrisann Brennan and Michael Stuhlbarg as one of the original developers of the Mac, Andy Hertzfeld.
“Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, the film takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter,” Universal said in a press release.
Other cast members include Perla Haney-Jardine (Future Weather), Ripley Sobo (Winter’s Tale), Makenzie Moss (Do You Believe?), Sarah Snook and Adam Shapiro.
In November, there was still speculation as to who would play Jobs when Christian Bale confirmed he would not be signing on to the project.
The film, based on the Walter Isaacson biography of Jobs, began shooting Tuesday in San Francisco.
