I haven't watched Ashton Kutcher's Jobs and not sure I will. I'm not a fan of his and after seeing the reviews, it looks cringeworthy. It sounds like the Sony backed Aaron Sorkin film will start production in 2015. They are talking with David Fincher (The Social Network), but he's demanding Christian Bale.

I think that would be an awesome choice. He looks like a young a Steve and the guy is intense. Loved him in The Fighter and I really think he'd be fantastic in the role.


So who would you cast as Jobs? Ashton, Bale, someone else?

I don't look anything like Steve Jobs, but people tell me that I will be the next Steve Jobs as I love Apple very much. :)

I thought Noah Wiley had the look. But I didn't see either the Wiley or Kutcher movies.

I can't see Kutcher. I like Matthew McConaughey. I think he would be superb in that role.

I think Christian Bale will do a fantastic job playing Jobs. He's one of the best actors of our time and he resembles him.

Aston Kutcher's performance in jOBs was not cringeworthy and the movie wasn't bad, but Bale is a better choice.

I'm debating if I should see that movie. Being a fan of Apple, I'm sure there would be some interesting history.

I read this book well over a decade ago (if memory serves me correct). It's a quick read and does a great job detailing the start of Apple.
