It's Official: Christian Bale Will Play Steve Jobs in a New Biopic

23 October 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Last week, word surfaced that Christian Bale was in talks to play Steve Jobs, and now, he's been confirmed for the role. Bale will portray the late Apple cofounder in an upcoming movie based on Walter Isaacson's 2011 biography, Steve Jobs. "We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range, and that's Chris Bale," said screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. "He didn't have to audition." This project has been tossed around quite a bit, with names like Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Bradley Cooper, and Leonardo DiCaprio attached at various points. While David Fincher was once on board to direct, Danny Boyle is now at the helm. What do you think - can you see Bale as Jobs? Perhaps more so than Ashton Kutcher? »

Aaron Sorkin Confirms Christian Bale Will Play Steve Jobs: ‘He’s Gonna Crush It’

It's Official: Christian Bale Will Play Steve Jobs in Aaron Sorkin-Penned Biopic

23 October 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

After some behind-the-scenes shuffling, the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic "Jobs" has secured its leading man: Christian Bale.

Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin revealed the official casting news in an interview with Bloomberg Television, noting that Bale was the obvious choice for the part -- and didn't even need to audition.

"We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range, and that's Chris Bale," Sorkin told Bloomberg.

The casting aligns with director David Fincher's earlier selection of Bale as his top choice to play the Apple founder. But Fincher eventually abandoned the project -- sources say over budget concerns -- and replacement director Danny Boyle had zeroed in on Leonardo DiCaprio for the role, before that connection also fell by the wayside.

Previous reports indicated that Fincher wanted Bale for the role in large part due to his strong physical resemblance to the late Jobs, but Sorkin told »

Benedict Cumberbatch's Wax Figure Looks Exactly Like the Sherlock Star—It's Basically Him Standing There!

Uncanny! The team at Madame Tussauds really outdid themselves this time, because the new wax figure of Benedict Cumberbatch looks exactly like the Sherlock star. In fact, it's highly possible that all of the women who crowded around to take selfies with his glossy doppelgänger at the unveiling actually thought that it was him. And maybe one day, when they're flipping through their pics, they'll just assume that it was. Seriously, with all of the eerie wax figures out there (we're thinking Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Zuckerberg, aren't you?), have you seen a better likeness lately? Look at the two side-by-side and tell us... Who's who? The fake Benedict »
