The rumors are true. Christian Bale will play Steve Jobs in the Sony Jobs biopic based on Walter Isaacson' Steve Jobs book.

Reports about actor Christian Bale taking on the Steve Jobs role in Sony's biopic based on Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs biography appeared a week ago. Now Bloomberg confirmed the reports. Christian Bale will play Steve Jobs and did not have to audition for the role, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin says.

“We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale,” Sorkin told Bloomberg Television’s Emily Chang on a coming edition of “Studio 1.0.” “He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting.”

Sony has the rights to Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs. The movie based on the book has not moved forward quickly and there have been already other Steve Jobs movies. Aaron Sorkin is still working on the screen adaption of Isaacson's book. Filming of the Sony produced Steve Jobs movie is supposed to start in the next couple of months. Aaron Sorkin won an Oscar for the screenplay for The Social Network. This is giving Apple fans high hopes that the Sony Jobs' movie will be a master piece, worthy of legendary Apple founder Steve Jobs.

Watch Conan's take on how Christian Bale as Steve Jobs will look like.

Steve Jobs died October 5, 2011 at the age of 56. He died of respiratory arrest related to a pancreas neuroendocrine tumor.

His legacy is overwhelming. Just this week one of the first Apple computers (Apple I) that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak assembled himself got sold for $905,000 in an auction. This huge amount of money just shows how deeply the world's computer history has been shaped by Steve Jobs with Apple.
