Unconventional casting? Seth Rogen could play Apple co-founder in Steve Jobs biopic
Not many would think of Seth Rogen to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak (below) in the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic.
But apparently he is being seriously considered for the role in the movie, to be directed by Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle.
It was reported last week that the film's screenwriter confirmed that Christian Bale had taken on the part of Jobs - even without an audition.
Sorkin, known for his fast-paced dialogue and wordplay in TV drama The West Wing and The Social Network, said that the part is challenging.
"He has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined," said Sorkin.
It is not known exactly how big the role of Wozniak will be.
Sorkin has said that the movie will comprise three thirty-minute scenes - all of which will take place backstage before three key product launches.
