Natalie Portman is in talks for a role in the upcoming Universal Steve Jobs biopic!
It is not known the exact role the 33-year-old Oscar winning actress would play, but it is expected to be a major character.
The biopic has run into some issues as of late after being dropped entirely by Sony following Christian Bale‘s sudden exit from the project. Michael Fassbender is now in talks to take over the role of Steve Jobs.
Seth Rogen is also in discussions to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in the Aaron Sorkin-scripted film.
Michael Brown‘s parents, Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr., appeared on the Today show this morning after Officer Darren Wilson made his case last night and defended his actions after shooting their son over the summer.
Michael Sr. called Darren Wilson’s account “crazy” and “disrespectful,” and added, “For one, my son, he respected law enforcement. Two, who in their right mind would rush or charge at a police officer that has his gun drawn?”
The family attorney, who joined his parents at the interview, said, “When you have people of color be killed, they try to demonize and play the stereotypes, and they try to put the police officer who killed our children on a pedestal. It’s just not right and we have to fix this system.”
Michael‘s parents have called for peaceful protest after the grand jury made the decision not to indict the officer in the shooting of their son on August 9.
Cate Blanchett is all windswept and gorgeous on the cover of PORTER magazine’s latest issue.
Here’s what the 45-year-old Oscar winning actress had to share with the mag:
On the media: “I’m really fascinated by what we accept and what we ignore and how we process the white noise being shoveled down our throats. It used to be you’d go to the hairdressers and pick up those evil magazines and feel dirty. It’s like watching too much porn, I guess.”
On Emma Watson‘s famous UN speech: “I was so fu*king proud of Emma Watson’s speech at the UN. It was brilliant, such an incredible use of her airspace, and really passionate. It was fantastic.”
On moving to Sydney: “We’re really boring. We’ve got three kids; I’m not married to an actor. No one’s interested in us, and that’s part of the reason why we live here – because nobody gives a sh*t.”
On being judged by other moms: “You know there’s an extra judgment. You know they’re really observing how you parent. They don’t know that you cram everything in to make space for your kids like any working parent. Playing the lead in a film where you shoot for three months away from home is not an easy thing for me when my children are in school and my husband is running a theater company. They assume you have a nanny and a driver and a chef. Who gives a sh*t whether I do or not? The fact is, I don’t, but you know there is a certain circle of people – and we all get insecure – who then ask, ‘Why can’t she brush her hair?’ You just have to shrug that off.”
