Perla Haney-Jardine to play Lisa Jobs in Universal’s ‘Steve Jobs’ biopic

“Up-and-coming actress Perla Haney-Jardine, whose most prominent credit may be an appearance in 2007’s Spider-Man 3, has been cast as the daughter of Steve Jobs in Jobs,” Borys Kit reports for The Hollywood Reporter. “Other actors in various stages of joining the movie include Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak, Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld, Kate Winslet and Jeff Daniels.”

“Jobs denied he was Lisa Jobs’ father for years before admitting paternity when the young woman was a teen,” Kit reports. “Due to sensitivities, Lisa Jobs didn’t participate in Isaacson’s book but Sorkin said in interviews last year he talked to her for his adaptation.”

Kit reports, “‘She is the heroine of the movie,’ Sorkin told British newspaper The Independent in November.”

    1. Gee, Apothicus – please regale us with tales of the Academy, BAFTA, Golden Globe and Emmy awards you’ve won – like Sorkin – that entitles you to think that you can credibly diss one of the most honored screen writers of our time. Didn’t think so…
