Steve Jobs / Christian Bale

Just over a week ago, we learned that Christian Bale was again in the running to play Steve Jobs in the new biopic about the Apple founder and technology innovator. Danny Boyle (127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire) is directing the film with a script from Aaron Sorkin, and it's the acclaimed writer who confirms that Bale will indeed take the starring role in the film that is currently titled Jobs (though that might change since the Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher had the same title). In addition, Sorkin has more to say about the film, unsurprisingly noting that he's given Bale a lot to say as Jobs. More below!

Speaking with Bloomberg Television, Sorkin said, "We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale. He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting." And apparently that was good enough to give Bale the role, which is impressive considering Sorkin says, "He has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined. There isn’t a scene or a frame that he’s not in. So it’s an extremely difficult part and he is gonna crush it.” So the movie will be riding on Bale's shoulders, as well as Sorkin's script. This isn't surprising since Sorkin previously said the film would consist of three long scenes, each taking place before the reveal of one of Apple's product launches for Mac, NeXT and the iPod. We're very interested to see how he fills the time with just those scenes.

    I hate Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs was a giant tit head. Why do people praise him? Why? He's a giant asshole who died thinking he did everything right. Why make a movie about him?

    How many of these are there? At least Bale knows how to lose his temper...
