    As we announced recently that Universal Studios has picked up production for Aaron Sorkinís upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, more news is coming out claiming that Natalie Portman may be joining the cast. News is being released on a weekly basis in regards to Sorkinís film, and this time itís on another high-profile actress. It has been a roller coaster ride for the film as the original director and highly anticipated actors have dropped out and turned down roles from the biopic. The news comes from Hollywood entertainment website Deadline, but no information on what role Natalie Portman would play was released.

    Sorkin previously reported that the role of Jobsí daughter Lisa, would be a major part of the film, so it would make sense if Portman took on her character. However, we will have to wait for more news to come out in order to confirm it. It was also rumored a few days ago that Michael Fassbender was approached for the role of Jobs after Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale both rejected the role. If this does happen and Natalie Portman also signs on, it would be the second movie Fassbender and Portman have collaborated together on.

    Fassbender.....REALLY???? He's a good actor and all but doesn't look anything like Jobs. Why can't these guys just hire Noah Wiley again, he was born to play Jobs. Jobs himself said that he did a better job's than he did...LOL!!!
