As you probably know by now, the second Steve Jobs biopic, with a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin, is currently filming up in Northern California. Michael Fassbinder is playing Jobs, and Seth Rogen is playing the Woz, Steve Wozniak.
As we just reported on TG, director Danny Boyle made the pilgrimage to the Los Altos garage where Apple began, and neighbors were hoping for a glimpse of Seth Rogen as the Woz. Now here’s the first picture that’s gotten out, thanks to the paparazzi.
There will be plenty of people who will have their opinions strictly on first photo, we’re going to withhold any judgment on any of this until we see some actual footage of Fassbinder in action. We know there’s going to be plenty of people that will say they don’t look like either guy, but a great actor can make you overlook the fact that they don’t look exactly like the person they’re playing. It’s all about the overall performance, not whether they can win a Halloween lookalike contest.
There’s currently no release date for the Jobs movie, but recent reports have Universal hoping for a fast turn around, and it’s certainly conceivable that the movie could be ready by the end of the year.
