With Christian Bale pegged to play Steve Jobs in the upcoming biopic of the Apple co-founder directed by Danny Boyle, it was only a matter of time before the studio found someone to play the other half of the original Apple Computer duo, Steve Wozniak. Jobs, which is based on author Walter Isaacson’s biography of the high-profile Apple CEO, will feature Seth Rogen as the brilliant engineer popularly known as “Woz.”
Seth Rogen has been set to star as Steve Wozniak opposite Christian Bale in Sony’s Steve Jobs biopic, sources confirm. Variety reported on Oct. 15 that Bale was in talks to star in “Jobs,” Sony’s biopic about the late Apple co-founder. Writer Aaron Sorkin recently confirmed the Bale casting. Jessica Chastain is being eyed for an unspecified role. Based on Walter Isaacson’s biography “Steve Jobs,” the real-life drama is directed by Oscar-winner Danny Boyle. Scott Rudin is producing the tech drama along with Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady. Sorkin, who also penned the Facebook drama “The Social Network,” has publicly said the movie will be divided into three long scenes, each taking place backstage before one of Apple’s famous product launches. Sony acquired rights following the Apple mogul’s death in 2011.
