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.

I just hope that he doesn't bring Batman out in this movie like he's done with every other movie of his since. He screams or gets intense or intimidating and then it's like, "Oh look, I didn't know Batman was in this movie!"

Bale seems the perfect choice. He has a timeless quality that'll let him do a convincing job at several stages of Steve's life. He has the determination to physically adapt to Steve's changing condition as his disease progresses. Finally he has a bit of the same mean-spirited self-centeredness that Steve is infamous for... Plus he is closer to looking like Steve than any of the others.

How come Hollywood doesn't want to do a bio pic about Eric Schmidt and his life? Just a couple of clowns trying to become interns is all the Hollywood love Google gets.

Well he's a jerk in real life (allegedly) He'll do far better than Kutcher for sure

This movie isn't going to sell because people don't care about executives of a company or the internal functions of a corporation. I'd go as far as to say that not many people know who Steve Jobs even was.

Honestly I liked the movie "JOBS". I already knew that it didn't have accurate details but I felt it captured the spirit of something great. How the computer came to be and its still amazes me that at one point people couldn't fathom using a mouse. I dont know about you guys but I grew up in the 90s and early 2000's. The mid 90's was an explosive time for technology in general and I remember using apple II's in school. I don't know maybe I just connect with the movie differently then most and also because I'm an IT manager now, I feel it partialy reflects my life.
