• E.R. Co-Stars Competing for Role of Steve Jobs in Sony Biopic

    While Sony Pictures has been busy courting Aaron Sorkin to pen the screenplay for the coming Steve Jobs biopic, it appears two former E.R. stars are busy making their case for the role of Jobs in the film.

    Former E.R. star Noah Wyle has already expressed his interest in reprising the role of Steve Jobs whom he played in the 1999 made-for-TV movie Pirates of Silicon Valley. However, according to British Magazine NOW another fellow E.R. Star, George Clooney, has thrown his hat into the Jobs mix.

    George Clooney, 50, is battling it out with his former ER co-star Noah Wyle, 40, to play Apple founder Steve Jobs in a new movie.

    The biopic, which is expected to start filming next year, will chart the life of the techie guru, who died last month from cancer at the age of 56. NOW
    Im not sure how Id feel about Clooney in role of Steve Jobs, but if Sony can secure Sorkin the only question marks left regarding the movie will be the leading man and the director. A competent script from say a Sorkin, and someone like David Fincher behind the camera would be intriguing. But, Fincher would most likely pass on the project after the success of his similarly topical The Social Network.

    Maybe were all missing the obvious here: A Woody Allen written, directed, and acted Steve Jobs biopic.
