    He can't even pull off a good 2 and a Half Men replacement, IMO.



    I think Noah was a little weak, they need someone with a little more passion. How about Tom Cruise? Naw, just joking, even though he could probably pull it off.

    Charlie Sheen is way too intense for this role IMO. I think Tom Cruise would be better, I mean Tom cruise knows how to throw a tantrum. :-)



    Noah Wyle was too wimpy of a Steve Jobs. They need someone that can take command of the BIG screen.

    why not cast jennifer aniston, adam sander, vince vaughn and kevin james while you're at it?

    Haha, isn't it kind of late for an April Fools Day joke?

    ? isn't going to reprise his role.



    ?



    This better be a lie. Though it IS Sony, after all.



    Noah Wyle was perfect in Pirates of Silicon Valley.

    Though this is an April Fools joke it is an interesting question to ask regarding who would be a good Steve Jobs impersonator. Ashton Kutcher is OK for some roles but not this one. Tom Cruise might have been mentioned as a joke but honestly he is a great actor.



    Which male actor would be willing and able to go from a healthy weight to a gaunt look for a role? Tom Hanks did it for a movie but he's too old to pull this off. I agree that Noah Wylie comes off weak.

    This isn't the sony flick about jobs but some indie effort

    They faked it with CGI in the most recent Twilight, why not with?

    Nobody could ever replace Noah Wylie. One of the best movies, ever.

    What I don't understand is Steve Jobs had way more popularity that Ashton. To me Steve Deserves an A rated Actor. Some one who is of great stature and is highly accredited in the Hollywood Community. Ashton didn't even know Steve Jobs. I don't think Ashton doesn't even get how big Steve Jobs really was and still is.



    Noah is a good choice being that he kinda looks like Jobs. But yes even Tom Cruise would be better than Ashton.



    How about Stanley Tucci? He even looks like Jobs. He may be a little to old though huh?

    Christian Bale, hands down. Google an image, can play anything and goes up and down weight without a hitch.

    Well, I guess my selection of choice, Eddie Murphy, just got flushed down the toilet.

    On a more serious note, Bale would be awesome. He's got talent, is a character chameleon, and has that 'do not fuck with me' aura that Jobs had.



    Just don't walk around in the background while he's filming his scene or he'll go thermonuclear on you.

    I'd rather have Johnny Depp. He looks more like Steve, and he's way better

    He is great for TV and slap-stick movies...but not this. Another movie to put on my "Do Not Watch" list.
