Who Would Play Steve Jobs in the Apple Movie?

With all the hubbub of lovely Leo getting cast as Nolan Bushnell, the founder of Atari, I'm hoping that this is the herald for Hollywood movies about Silicon Valley denizens. Thankfully, this Leo flick sounds more compelling than Josh Hartnett's August, and I think it's because this is a biopic. I want to see the history of tech, not a total dramatization.

When I think of what stories I'd really like to see played out on the big screen, I of course think of my Steves. I want to see the fashionista Jobs and the ladies' man Wozniak as young ones creating an empire and all the ups and downs in doing so. Someone thought Noah Wylie would be a good Jobs, but I disagree — I'd like to see someone a little more dynamic announce iPhone 3G's and such. I've got a few suggestions for actors below, but let me know who you'd think would make the best silver-screen Steve!

after seeing ryan goslings performance in "half nelson" and then "lars and the real girl" i think he would be perfect for the job.

So sorry for the double-post, newbie here… just want to add besides all that Aaron Eckhart was born in… Cupertino, California, where Apple's HQ is located. I sort of win. ;)

Aaron Eckhart, fine actor and the guy just looks like Steve Jobs. http://www.imdb.com/media/rm73766400/nm0001173 here with an iBook… :) http://www.imdb.com/media/rm995399680/nm0001173

Oops! Meant 38. If he was 48 he would look pretty damn good. Sorry. Jason Bateman would be good too. I liked him in Juno

Ed Norton isn't 48 - he's 38.

Noah Wyle was awesome! I cannot see someone else in Steve's skin.

While I think Aston's looks are closest, I want to see Ryan Gosling in this role. I can't get enough of that kid!

Anyone by Ryan Gosling, yuck. Kayla, I was thinking of Nathon Fillion, too! I voted for Jason Bateman, he seems very much the right choice.

I agree that since ed norton is older, this doesnt make him the best candidate. and i think that although he is a great actor, he's prolly too serious for this role. I like jason bateman. he kind of reminds me of him. They'd need to dye his hair or use a wig. steve jobs was cute when he was young. bummer. jajaja

Ed Norton is an awesome actor but Ryan Gosling would be better because he's younger. Steve is 55 and Norton is 48. I think someone has to be younger to play Steve when he first founded Apple. I think he was around 22 at the time.

I honestly dont know Steve Jobs personality. If he's quirky then I would say Bateman for sure. But if he is just like a normal guy with a sorta funny sense of humor, then Ed.I voted for Ed cause he seemed the most capable.
