Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak? According to The Wrap the Neighbors star is due to play the role in an upcoming biopic about Steve Jobs.
Rogen would co-star alongside Christian Bale in the title role.
Could this become Rogen’s breakout film as a dramatic actor?
Plenty of comic actors have made the successful jump to drama. Steve Martin, Jim Carey, Adam Sandler and Eddie Murphy have all tried to do just that. Robyn Williams even won an Oscar for Good Will Hunting.
Also, Rogen’s sometime sidekick in comedic films, Jonah Hill, has now been nominated twice for an Oscar in a supporting role.
The movie has not even been filmed yet and is still in the development stages, but it already has a great deal to overcome. Last year’s Jobs starred heartthrob Ashton Kucther in the title role and was a complete bomb.
The Steve Jobs movie was written by Aaron Sorkin and will be directed by Oscar winner Danny Boyle.
