"Hahaha, nice thumbnail, but Clooney doesn't resemble Steve one bit. Aaron Eckhart is the perfect candidate. Just look at the bio pic at IMDB, he has a striking resemblance to Mr Jobs. "
I am so going to be watching this. Don't care for who plays the role as long as they make it worthy enough for the viewers :D
I found a youtube video of Noah Wyle and Steve jobs hand picked him to impersonate Jobs on stage at an Apple event.
After watching the video he does a good job and the video was from 1999 so Noah should be a more polished actor this go around. I just hope who ever is chosen really gets into character and is passionate about the role.
Both look like capable actors. George Clooney definitely has the voice but Noah Wyle has the looks, I mean have you seen him in that Pirates of Silicon Valley movie?
Of course, both can't capture an accurate impression of Steve Jobs, even that Aaron guy that Optimus quoted. But we'll see how good of a job they've done once the Steve Jobs movie comes out.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
I think Noah would be much better for the part, if they are only choosing between those two actors. He did a pretty good job in Pirates of Silicon Valley
If they went with Clooney, I'd have a hard time getting past who he is in real life. For biography type movies, I find it harder to connect with the character if it's a huge movie star playing the part. I might even feel the same way about Noah, even though he's not as big of a star, but because I was an E.R. fanatic and know of him from there. I loved his role on the show.
Oh and here's the vid ThunderBird is talking about:
PCAudioLabs Rok Box MC 7xs - Intel Core i7-2600K - Cooling: PCAL Quiet Operation - Gigabyte Z68 Motherboard - 16GB DDR3-1333 - AMD Radeon HD 5450 - Power Supply: 600 Watts - SRT Drive: Intel 311 SSD (20GB) - Primary Drive: 500GB, 7200RPM, 16MB cache - Audio Drive: 1TB, 7200RPM, 32MB cache - Sample Drive: 2TB, 7200RPM, 64MB cache - OS: Windows 7 Professional x64
Justin somebody, the guy who used to play the Mac in the "I'm a Mac" ads.
Going with the ER theme, wouldn't Anthony Edwards be the more spot on choice ?
Hmm... he might be an ER theme favorite but Noah is such a look-a-like that it's hard not to go with him and he has experience in the role.

God not George Clooney ------- Cancel the production rather than him play this role
"After looking at other candidates and looking at other related articles from different site, I think that the best choice, unarguably would be Ashton Kutcher. Just look at the pics below, uncanny resemblance, and Ashton definitely has the charisma to portray Steve."
The movie will be interesting.
I'm halfway through the "Steve Jobs" book, and I have conflicting emotions about this guy. While he was a real mover, shaker with unique ideas, his methods so far are 'prickly' at best.
His ways of dealing with people that worked for him were outrageous at times. The picture that the book is painting of his methods and personality isn't so flattering. I wouldn't want to be remembered like that.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Maybe he was a big E.R. fan too and might have picked George or Noah when asked who he'd want to play him in a movie.
I think everyone has thought about that at one point or another. I have, but I'm still undecided lol
I think the real thing to consider here, is which male actor's career do we wish to see take a nosedive really fast, cuz that's what would happen if this were to come to fruition.
Optimus, I'm with you on A+K its too bad he can't act. Noah Wylie did a good job in Pirates of Silicon Valley.
