Variety reports that actor Seth Rogen has been cast to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic from Sony:
Seth Rogen has been set to star as Steve Wozniak opposite Christian Bale in Sony’s Steve Jobs biopic.
We learned earlier this month that Christian Bale, who starred in the recent Batman trilogy, will portray Steve Jobs in the Aaron Sorkin directed film. Sorkin later confirmed the report adding that Christian Bale didn’t have to audition for the role in the film.
While the Sony-backed film is being written by Aaron Sorkin, Danny Boyle will be directing the upcoming biopic.
Before Bale was confirmed to play the role of Steve Jobs in the film, actor Leonardo DiCaprio was set to play the role of the famous Apple co-founder, although he reportedly dropped out of the role before filming began.
In the 2013-released Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher, the role of Steve Wozniak was played by actor Josh Gad. Rogen has played in various roles including Pineapple Express, Knocked Up, and Superbad.
