“Recently, Sony pictures announced that the new Steve Jobs biopic would be penned by Social Network writer extraordinaire Aaron Sorkin,” Abby Koenig writes for The Houston press. “The movie, titled for some reason Steve Jobs, will be based on the best selling biography written by Walter Isaacson.”
“This is not the indie Steve Jobs biopic starring one Ashton Kutcher, which has been getting all the buzz,” Koenig writes. “The indie pic cast Ashton Kutcher before we even had a say… No doubt Aaron Sorkin and Sony will look high and low for the perfect Jobs, as of this post no actor is attached. This is great. Now we can take wild stabs in the wind at who should play Steve Jobs in the second biopic coming out at potentially the same time.”
Which actor should play Steve Jobs?
• Noah Wyle
• Stanley Tucci
• Michael Showalter
• Daniel Day Lewis
• Edward Norton
• James Franco
• John Krasinki
• Spike Jonze
