Jessica Chastain And Seth Rogen Eyed For Roles In Danny Boyle's 'Jobs' With Christian Bale

If you’re going to star in an Aaron Sorkin written movie, you’re going to have to love walking and talking. And talking. And then talking some more. With the screenwriter boasting that his upcoming “Jobs” has “more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined,” cast members will be challenged. But Christian Bale is up for it, taking the lead role of Steve Jobs, and now some more names are in the mix.

The Wrap reports that Seth Rogen and Jessica Chastain are being eyed for the movie. The former is under consideration to play Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak, who was portrayed by Josh Gad in that other movie about Steve Jobs that we won’t talk about. As for Chastain, no word yet on what her potential role. But we have no argument if either comes onboard, but we have to say, Bale and Rogen trading Sorkin penned sentences at a rapid clip boggles the mind.

There’s also no start date for the movie yet, but it looks like Sony is moving fast to get this one together. Oscar potential next year? With the right ingredients, and a fast turnaround, it could be.
