There will never, ever be a 'real' film or book created about anything, let alone Steve Jobs. Both are a phenomenon (perception) which are very poor attempts at representing reality.

The Ashton one was awful and for some reason I doubt this upcoming one will be that much better. I just think because most of us know so much about the subject, we all have high expectations and that will never be fulfilled on screen.

Day Lewis

I can only imagine what Daniel Day Lewis could do with this role. Not to mention his method acting. I'm sure LSD, fasting, fruit diets, and black mock necks would enter his process.

I'm not all that excited about it myself, simply because it's a rare thing for me to get stoked over a biopic. But considering the raw talent working on this, you'll at least know that, if anything, it'll be a decent movie.

Actually there could be. But it won't come any time soon. Because it will have to be thoroughly researched over many years. If someone is working on it they hopefully already started because any more of the major players end up dead.

Lewis looks more like Scully.

Keep in mind that the Ashton one was horrible cause it was a first time producer, a first time writer and a director with one really crappy work under his belt and one meh one. And the rest of the crew didn't appear to be much better (I helped a friend dissect the camera work as examples of what not to do for a class he is teaching)

They clearly weren't out to win any awards but to produce something that would get shown at least once for their resumes. Heck they can even say it showed at major festivals. It got them press. Name dropping Apple and/or Steve Jobs will do that

If you've seen the way that Tom looked in 'Collateral' with the scruffy beard, you can better start to envision how he'd look as Jobs:

Thumb resize.

Aside from all that, it would lend the necessary star power to the film to make people flock in droves.
I'm no fan of Tom Cruise - but he would be a good fit for Jobs.

Why not Dwayne Johnson... he already looks good in black (no homo)

Imagine a long sleeve black shirt

Add a beard, round specs and cropped hair and you have Jobs. The younger years would be difficult.

The only way Steve Jobs will be properly represented is through an HBO series, which would allow for long conversations, character development, and not feeling rushed through things.

If Game of Thrones were forced into a 2 hour movie, it would suck.

Disagree with respect!
And completely agree with Daniel Day-Lewis. Almost all movies he played in are great and he is very hard to accept playing roles as in Wikipedia :

"He is known as being one of the most selective actors in the film industry, having starred in only five films since 1998, with as many as five years between each role."

But Steve Jobs was head of a strange technology cult which takes all the money of its followers.

How would Tom Cruise be able to get inside that role?

Steve would have never allowed his dental surgeon to make such a clearly non-symmetrical smile.

"Yes! We go live in 20 minutes!"
"You think I don't know that?"

"Then why would you aski me if the demo's ready, if you know I know that? You don't trust me?"
"You still haven't answered my question! Is the @#%$! demo ready?!"
"No."
"No?!!!"
"There's been... a problem."

This is why I eventually became irritated by The West Wing.

As for casting, I think they should be really innovative and do it all using CGI. Give those programmers a challenge: "Everything in the movie has to look 100% realistic. If it does, you'll have jobs for life at Pixar, with stock options. If it doesn't, you'll never work in the industry again."

Maybe I'm the only one, but while it was an interesting film, I found The Social Network to be quite irritating. The quick talking, unrelenting pace gave me a headache. I don't know if I should blame Sorkin or Fincher, or the combination.

So, with what I have already heard about Sorkin only having three scenes in the movie and imagining a similar cinematic experience to The Social Network, I am becoming less interested in this movie.

And I still vote for Noah Wyle. I know he's done it before, but I think he has the chops and the look to pull off a convincing Jobs.
