In case you didn’t know, the Steve Jobs movie will be produced by Scott Rudin and the script was written by Aaron Sorkin, based on the best-selling biography by Walter Isaacson.

    Where does this come from? How? Why? Will he be the Wolf of Apple? No. I can’t see this at all.

    Steve was self-focused, driven and possibly on the Autism continuum. Aston was so good in Jobs that I can’t imagine anyone else who looks nothing like Steve to play him. Trouble with Jobs is it came out too soon after his death. Great film. Enlightening, revealing and entertaining.

  • oh no

    Another biopic?!!! Like WTF?!
    You are so repetitive leo and so tremendously fuc,king boring AND predictabke as f,uck
    Thats what you are

    @Meg – That’s what I thought. Wasn’t Ashton Kutcher playing Steve Jobs?

    not a chance will he do this, boyle WANTS him to do it, hes not attached

  • Rose

    Ugh enough with Steve Jobs. The Apple company sucks and their products are way overrated. Plus Ashton Kutcher just made a movie about Jobs. Do something original, Leo instead of another lame, overdramatic biopic. Maybe then you’ll win an Oscar.

  • mazinger

    @Rose: Everyone knows he’s a very good actor so dont make a drama out of a little statue and go to hell.

  • Amy

    Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin??? Do it, Leo!

  • HAHA12

    In the article it says Danny Boyle wants Leo to star in it, not that Leo is committed to star in it. I doubt he will, and hope he doesn’t because it would be a bad miscasting.

  • Amy

    @GFW:

    I hope you’re trolling. Ashton Kutcher a good actor? lol

  • ####

    @HAHA12:

    I can’t see Leo doing this. I can’t even picture him as jobs.

  • HAHA12

    @####:
    Yeah same, I really doubt he will star in this esp since he’s never been attached or expressed interest in this. It’s just another case of Leo being linked to a baity role he never ends up starring in. Remember that Woodrow Wilson biopic? Lol

  • ####

    @HAHA12:

    I never saw the kutcher one but at least he looked like he could pull off what jobs looked like. I don’t think Leo even has the look of jobs.

  • @justjared

    Get your facts straight FFS!
    You suck anyways lol

  • HAHA12

    @####:
    I haven’t watched the Kutcher version either but I’m curious to despite the bad reviews it got. And yea Leo doesn’t resemble him at all, it’d be like J. Edgar all over again.

  • Leo

    THE KING!

    Get a clue girls.
    Why would Leo ever want to re-make a tired old computer geek concept movie when he could be making some really sweet mula while making movies with me and my stable of underaged Hollywood teenager actress sensations?

  • nononono

    The Beach was soooo bad ROFL ahahahahahah

  • @ Newcomer in previous thread

    “Leo was really bad, couldn’t hit the ball twice in a row and refused to play by the rules even if she was trying to help him, ”

    This is how Leo has sex ehhehe

    No.2; Of course. This thread was just meant to be a little something fun on the side.
    Cocktails anyone?

    @nononono:

    The book was better. The screenplay fell apart in the last third of the movie.

  • Lilly

    Will Poulter will replace Leo for the Steve Jobs biopic and win an Oscar

    Gabourey Sidibe will replace Leo for the Steve Jobs biopic and win an Oscar

  • Zzzzzz

    @HAH12, Newcomer & ####: Hi Ladies! Just on for a sec, but I agree with what you all said. Leo as Jobs would be a terrible miscast – I mean truly horrible – think Hoover. Thank god, he hasn’t signed on and it’s only Boyle wanting him to star in it. Also, they just released a bio on Jobs last year which bombed at the box office, why on earth would they want to do another one so soon?

  • Ken

    Leo is soooo jealous of james franco. james is an awsome director, writer, painter, artist, actor. he’s got it all. leo just works on a movie once in a while . More power to franco yall!

  • Zzzzzz

    Oops! @HAHA12: sorry!

  • uhhh

    @Ken: Franco tried to dress up like Leo in Romeo + Jule in the steaming turd “Sh-t Breakers” and failed horribly. Both are grimy but Franco is a major douche, Leo is simply a baby douche next to Franco

  • HAHA12

    @Zzzzzz:
    This seems to happen a lot in Hollywood, they’ve truly run out of original ideas, especially when it comes to biopics. Think of all the Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor biopics that get made lately and almost always get middling reviews. I think they want this version to be actually good tho, I’m unsure how Danny Boyle will do with this material but he’s going to need an A list star who actually resembles Steve Jobs as you said, and Leo’s not the guy for it. I read Christian Bale was attached but not anymore? Gtg but nice talking to you!

  • MTV

    Josh Hutcherson will star and produce in the Steve Jobs biopic and win both Oscars

    @Zzzzzz: Hi! Yes, I don’t understand how Danny Boyle could think about Leo to play Jobs. Not that Leo is a bad actor of course, but he looks nothing like Jobs. But I don’t think he will join the cast. He is linked to so many projects though, it’s crazy. I am a bit lost when it comes to which movies he has been/is being linked.
