George Clooney and Noah Wyle are interested in in playing Steve Jobs in the upcoming biopic, according to Cult Of Mac (via The Sun). Clooney is 50 and Wyle 40 both starred together as doctors on ER. Filming is slated to start next year on the project that will chart the life and career of Jobs.
Wyle played jobs in the TV movie, Pirates of Silicon Valley. I love Falling Skies, and am not sure how this would impact the shooting schedule if he were to be cast. Clooney has back surgery coming up from an injury that occurred on Syriana.
I would be fine with Clooney of Wyle playing the role. It all depends on the quallity fo the makeup. What are your thoughts?
