The Way to San Jose: The musical theatre sensation based on the life and times of Steve Jobs?
Sticking with their casting policy of picking actors-who-look-quite-a-lot-like-the-character, the makers of the Steve Jobs biopic are in talks with tubby TV funnyman Josh Gad for the part of Steve Wozniak. The biographical movie, simply titled Jobs, will detail the life of billionaire biz baron adored Apple co-founder Steve …
Jeff Bridges would be a good choice. Apart from being a marvelous actor, he's got the physical attributes for the task. He played a baldy in Iron Man, and he really put on the pounds for True Grit. Put those elements together (and remove the beard and some charisma), and you've got Ballmer.
He's not quite the right height, but I'd tend to say Michael Chiklis (from the TV series "The Shield" and less famously as The Thing in "The Fantastic Four") appears to have more than a passing resemblance to Ballmer and plenty of time on his hands.
I'm sure they could add the ring-around-the-dome in makeup and give him some Kim Jong-Il lifts in his shoes... should work ok I think : )
No punishment the putative afterlife could deliver can compare to the cosmic naff-ness of being portrayed by Ashton Kutcher.
I consider any outstanding wrath on my part re: the late Jobs and his overblown tat to be properly assuaged.
Of course, I'd have been happier if it had been Keanu Reeves.
I can see the cinemas handing out free sick bags, as I think this will be the cheesiest pile of idol worshipping nonsense. I expect the only thing that will be missing will be the halos & horns and the Omen theme every time Gatesy shows up on screen. Still.... it could turn out to be a work of artistic genius, but somehow I doubt it as I don't think Ashton's "artistic capabilities" could be that far stretched.
