Christian Bale to play Steve Jobs in Sorkin biopic
Renowned for his protagonist role in "The Dark Knight", actor Christian Bale will star as the late Apple CEO Steve Job's in Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin's latest biopic.
Bale did not even had to audition for the role.
Speaking to Bloomberg Television's Emily Chang, Sorkin said: "We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale.
"He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting."
According to The Verge, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Bradley Cooper, and Leonardo DiCaprio were among the actors in contention for the still-unnamed film.
The film is an adaptation of Walter Isaacson's 2011 biography, "Steve Jobs", and will begin shooting in two months.
"He has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined," said Sorkin.
"There isn’t a scene or a frame that he’s not in. So it’s an extremely difficult part and he is gonna crush it."
Sorkin was also the screenwriter for the hit movie "The Social Network" which won an Academy Award.
