No more frontrunner status. It’s official.
Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin confirmed Christian Bale in the upcoming biopic about the Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
“We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale,” Sorkin told Bloomberg Television’s Emily Chang. “He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting.”
Of course, in his interview, he did left out Leonardo DiCaprio was the studio’s choice before Bale.
“He has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined. 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.”
