    If this is true, Apple is about to get a whole lot sexier…

    I was going to post a comment, but yours pretty much sums it up.

    No thanks… He looks nothing close to mr jobs

  • iowapipe

    Glad Bale bailed… I’m not a fan of his ‘art’. After American Psycho there wasn’t much differentiation regardless of what could have been done with any of his roles. Yeah, he’s had a variety of roles, by they are all 85% the same in the end. (he doesn’t have much of a range)

  • TeamBella76

    I love him ! He’s going to be great !

  • Morgana

    He is a brilliant actor and, on a separate note, I’d climb him like a tree.

  • Kate Pearce

    though I’d admire his choice of roles but this one seems like a stinker. if bale and dicaprio turned it down then you know something’s not right about it. leave it alone fassbender leave it alone!!!

  • Lola

    I don’t think this is a good fit. I mean he could play a total a$$ and other adjectives associated with S. Jobs, but honestly, movies about Jobs have been made and they have had little success, so why this one? Regardless of the director, etc. Why does the movie business feel like a rehash.
    PS. I am finding odd that the usual people that would have commented on a Fassbender link are not here, don’t know if they had the same problems I did with disque. Well, if you read here, Hi, Ladies!

  • Melita

    He needs to rest. Has been working non-stop.

  • Kate Pearce

    has he taken the role? I just thought he was still considering it. I hope he does do it. if dicaprio and bale dropped out then that should mean something right?

  • Adelbert van Duyn

    Michael is the obvious next choice to be James Bond now that the producers have started mentioning a replacement. He is the only actor on the list with star appeal
