Actors who should play Steve JobsFive actors who could play Steve Jobs instead of Christian Bale.
Word is that Christian Bale has turned down the role in the upcoming Steve Jobs film. Here are five actors that should be calling their agents right now. Starting off at number five, Stephen Colbert. He's been playing an egomaniacal tyrant for years, so this really shouldn't be much of a stretch. For four, Benedict Cumberbatch. People seem to generally love this guy and everything he does. Though I suspect part of the appeal is just being able to say his name. Benedict Cumberbatch. At number three, Matthew McConaughey. Charismatic, intense, and a bit of a d-bag. Perfect. At number 2, Daniel Day Lewis. This guy can basically play anything. Really, just take his character from There Will Be Blood and substitute iPhones for oil. And finally number 1, James Franco. I'm just saying, if it's true that Seth Rogen is playing Woz, you get Franco in there and it's Freaks and Geeks meets Silicon Valley with a dash of Pineapple Express. There you go. It's just my humble opinion but you let me know who. Who would you think should play Steve Jobs in the comments below.
