Aaron Sorkin Wanted Tom Cruise for 'Jobs' Instead of Michael Fassbender, According to Leaked Sony Emails

Tom Cruise channels his Risky Business days in Ray-Ban Wayfarers while leaving the London Palladium on Saturday night (December 13) in London, England.

According to the New York Daily News, the 52-year-old actor was wanted by Aaron Sorkin for his Steve Jobs biopic.

In leaked emails to Sony Pictures Entertainment Co-Chairwoman Amy Pascal, Aaron made it clear he didn’t want Michael Fassbender in the role.

“I don’t know who Michael Fassbender is and the rest of the world isn’t going to care. This is insane,” he allegedly wrote.

He later came around, writing, “F-ck it. He’s a great actor whose time has come.”

    Aaron who?
    Fassbender is the best

    Well, what we have learned from this is that stars like Clooney, Pitt, Jolie are all spoiled egomaniacs. At least nobody said anything bad about Tom Cruise in those emails. He doesn’t seem to create problems or go around begging for money and roles like Jolie, Pitt and Clooney were. He is a true movie star unlike those attention seekers listed above!
    And as much as I like Fassbender, its possible not everyone in Hollywood knows who he is yet. He should have won that Oscar last year instead of the majorly untalented Jared Leto. Leto won due to political correctness about gays and transgenders. He speech was awful when accepting that Best Supporting Actor award. I mean why did he bring up Russia and their laws about gays in the speech? WTF does that have to do with the Oscars?

    He looks good for 52. I saw more pictures from another site. He was there with Lewis Hamilton to see Nicole Scherzinger (wife of Lewis) in Cats.

    Others I don’t know but in the latest leak that Clooney actually apologize to Amy for the bad reviews of his movie, that he let them all down. Quite refreshing, isn’t it. As for Tom, I don’t think it would be a good fit for him to play Jobs, but he looks great here!

    Tom, time to come home.

    This is an old news, I’ve read about this couple days ago on some movie webs.

    Seriously? What a pretentious, clueless idiot. Fassbender is actually hotter right now than Cruise. And him saying ‘f’ it, he’s a great actor who’s time has come’. Does he think he’s going to or has the power to make his career with this film? Big ego much? Fassbender is already respected and his time has already come. If I were Fassbender I wouldn’t work with this dummy.

    Regardless, I personally don’t plan on seeing the movie. Have no desire to see yet another Jobs movie.

    From what we can see, the rackeados e-mailsinvolve a lot more people, actors and actresses!But, only “leaked” to the media the biggest, sopost what they say about Obama, Clooney, Pitt,jolie … is the price of Fame and power. It’s been two days, and all about it! And, by the way, eachday if discovers a new gossip or comment meanthese directors of Sony. Is every day moredifficult to give to everyone, I want to see whowill want to work with them now! Tom? I don’t think …

  • Pugsydoodle

    Fassbender could turn in the performance of his career and it would be forgotten just as quickly as Kutcher’s so-so effort. Remember Tom Hulce?

  • Kate Pearce

    don’t do it michael run for the hills!!! if bale and DiCaprio dropped it then there has to be a good reason for it.

  • Living in a box

    Tom Cruise is a good actor, Michael Fassbender also a good actor. If they want to make a good film and financial success then Tom is the right choice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vr3x_RRJdd4
