Well, why not? The upcoming untitled Steve Jobs biopic (written by Aaron Sorkin, and not to be confused with “Jobs,” the 2013 movie starring Ashton Kutcher, of all people) seems to be having a little trouble casting its lead actor. Earlier this year, Leonardo DiCaprio was approached for the role; he eventually declined, and several weeks ago Christian Bale was reported to be in talks to play the role, but declined as well. Now, word is that Fassbender has been approached; we shall see. In other news on this film, which now has Danny Boyle confirmed to direct (David Fincher was originally attached), Seth Rogen is in talks to play Steve Wozniak. Shooting for the film, which is based on Walter Isaacson’s bestselling biography of Jobs, is set to begin this winter; let’s hope all these casting issues can get resolved in time.
