Seth Rogen will play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in Sony’s upcoming Steve Jobs biopic that will star Christian Bale in the title role. Rogen will have some excellent advice handy on how to play Wozniak, as the Woz himself is a consultant on the film.
Rogen is a popular actor who has starred in movies like Neighbors, 22 Jump Street, andThis Is the End. While Rogen often stars in comedic films, he has demonstrated his ability to do more serious work in movies like Take This Waltz and 50/50.
The movie – which is based on Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs biography, has a screenplay written by West Wing scribe Aaron Sorkin, and will be directed by Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle – will focus on three 30-minutes scenes that lead up to three of Apple’s biggest product launches.
