bale as jobs

Christian Bale may be playing Steve Jobs in Sony’s highly anticipated biopic of the Apple co-founder, reports Variety. Citing sources familiar with the project, the outlet says it can confirm that the Oscar-winning actor is currently in talks for the part.

Perhaps best recognized for playing Bruce Wayne in the popular Dark Knight trilogy, Bale has taken on a variety of roles over the years. He’s well known in the industry for his ability to alter both his appearance and accent to better portray characters.

Aside from Bale, other actors have been considered for the part, including Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio and Bradley Cooper. If he signs on, he’d join the likes of Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle, and award-winning writer Aaron Sorkin.

Sorkin, who completed and turned in the screenplay in January, says the story consists of 3 30-minute scenes leading up to Apple product launches. The film has yet to receive a release date, but early rumors suggested production would start this fall.

  • Justice and Malice

    Perfect for this role in my opinion

    • Melvco

      was just saying he’s the best person I’ve seen suggested for the role thus far. Accent/voice is going to be tough though.

      • Justice and Malice

        He’s a pro. He’ll nail it. And he has the passion that’s needed to illustrate how aggressive of a manager jobs was.

  • Matt

    Bale is my favorite director!

    • Marcus

      You’re an idiot.

  • Jason Baroni

    I would use Kutcher for Steve’s younger years, then Bale.

    • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

      Kutcher sure as hell looks like him.

      • Jason Baroni

        Indeed! And I do like his acting on Jobs movie

  • Marcus

    Christian Bale is by far one of my favorite actors. The Dark Knight Trilogy is amazing and so are all of his other movies. I can’t wait for Exodus: God and Kings, as well as him in this upcoming Steve Jobs film.

  • Zod

    YESSSSSSS Christian Bale is one of the best actors ever.

  • Zod

    Bale > Kutcher

  • NeftyCorrea

    I’d said Ashton kucher should play Steve jobs part he played his part super good in the movie Jobs witch was steve jobs journey to success

  • Whilst Kutcher looks more like Jobs(debatable), then Bale, Bale will definitely act more like Jobs, than Kutcher.
