Pair of ER alumni battle it out for the chance to play Steve Jobs in movie biopic
Wyle might have the advantage over Clooney because he already had a chance to be Apple's now departed leader in the T.V. movie "Pirates of Silicon Valley". On the other hand, Clooney is more of a box office magnet than Wyle is. And in terms of age, Clooney is closer to the 56 that Jobs was when he passed away last month.
Would you rather see Clooney or Wyle in the starring role, portraying Steve Jobs? Is there anyone else you would like to see be the movie version of Apple's co-founder?

A young Steve Jobs looks a lot like Demitri Martin.

True, but I saw Demitri Martin try and act in the movie Contagion and every second he was on the screen I kept waiting for him to crack a quick joke. It just didn't work and took away from the suspense the movie was trying to create. So hopefully Steve Jobs was a very witty person

It would be best if a no name actor would do it. That way we could view the actor as Steve Jobs and not George Clooney playing Steve Jobs.

Keeping with the ER theme, Anthony Edwards looks a lot like Steve Jobs in his later years.

Actually, that's Aaron Sorkin who wrote The Social Network, not Adam.

I could see Jason Schwartzman in the role too. Not so sure about him being older SJ, but it's possible.
