Michael Fassbender next in line to portray Steve Jobs in Sony flick?
Recently, it was rumored that Seth Rogen would land the role of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. That part went to Book of Mormon star Josh Gad in last year's Jobs. The latter film, which starred Ashton Kutcher in the title role, came to theaters and left so fast that hardly anyone knew that it had been there. The movie was panned by many, including The Woz, who said that the film portrayed the two Apple co-founders incorrectly.
Fassbender is said to be in negotiations with Sony Pictures for the part of Steve Jobs, and is also talking with the film's director, Danny Boyle. The latter was the director for the hit film Slumdog Millionaire. Fassbender is known for his role as Magneto in X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past. He also was in the 2014 winner of the Oscar for Best Movie, 12 Years a Slave.
