With the recent passing of Steve Jobs and the legions of fans he had the success of the biography book that was published was ensured. When that book hit the best sellers list, I suspected a movie about the Apple legend would be made. According to The Register, the actors that are supposedly vying for the lead include a duo that was on ER in the past together.
George Clooney and Noah Wyle are both tipped to be in the running for the lead role in the picture. I think Wyle is a more likely candidate for the role. Wyle played Jobs in the past in the TV flick Pirates of Silicon Valley. Clooney is also a bit long in the tooth these days to play a young Jobs, while Wyle could still pull that off.
Jobs had also invited Wyle to perform on stage at Macworld in 1999 after the Pirates movie aired. Jobs is said to not have liked the portrayal, but appreciated the performance. Who do you think should play Jobs in the movie?

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
