9 to 5 Mac
But if there is something interesting around the future film (apart from the real protagonist: the story) it is the actor who could embody Jobs’ role in the fiction . Our only reference so far has been Noah Wyle in The Pirates of Silicon Valley.
Mr. Wyle was asked if he would like to play the role of Apple’s co-founder again. His answer came as no surprise. For Noah Wyle it would be one of those roles he would like to play again and again.
Wyle gained Jobs’ sympathy for his work even though he didn’t like the movie. Jobs called him to say that it had been good for him but that they could have gotten more if they had paid more attention to the details.
And we believe it in 1999 Noah Wyle appeared on MacWorld imitating Steve Jobs . We’ll see what happens because he doesn’t seem to be the only candidate, other possible actors to play Steve Jobs would be: Ty Burrell, Crispin Glover, Colin Hanks, Edward Norton, Stanley Tucci, James McAvoy, Luke Wilson, Adrian Brody and Penn Badgley. The last two to me personally kind of. So, if Noah Wyle doesn’t repeat a role I think James McAvoy would be my candidate. What about yours?
