Christian Bale once again appears the top choice to play Steve Jobs in Sony's biography
It has been a long grueling process to cast the main character. The movie still does not have its Steve Jobs yet, and the front runner, Leonardo DiCaprio, has dropped out of the running because he is taking a hiatus from acting. That means that Christian Bale, who at one time was the top choice to play the co-founder of Apple, is once again seen as the best man to star in the movie.
Other names mentioned as possibilities to step into Steve Jobs' shoes include Ben Affleck, his pal Matt Damon, and Bradley Cooper. Considering that the film is still in pre-production, Sony has the time to find the star it needs to make this a movie that will appeal to techies and non-techies alike.
