Christian Bale is reportedly the "first choice" to play Steve Jobs in the Aaron Sorkin-written, David Fincher-directed biopic. Wow, can we fit more A-listers in one sentence?
The news comes from The Wrap, which cites an "individual familiar with the project." It goes on, reporting Fincher met with Sony Studio's co-chair Amy Pascal and said "in no uncertain terms, that he'd only take the reins of the project if Bale plays Jobs."
Assuming that's true, that shows a lot of confidence in the former Batman.
But Bale has not yet been approached about the project, according to Cinema Blend. Sony has also not commented on the news.
Rumors of Bale as Jobs have been circling for a while now, simply because the Oscar-winning actor kind of looks like the Father of the iPhone – minus the turtleneck, of course. (Via YouTube / chuckthemovieguy,Apple)
And even if you don't see a resemblance, Bale has been known to make some extreme changes for previous roles.
