  • Sounds like great casting, actually. Both with Christian Bale and Seth Rogen.
  • I don't believe that any of these films take Wozniak seriously. They use actors who normally take comedic roles and Wozniak comes across as a buffoon. Wozniak is surely a kinder, more lighthearted person than Jobs, but he was also the engineering genius behind the early days of Apple. I don't know if Seth Rogen can pull that off--no offense to Rogen.
  • Depends on what direction Rogen gets, but I think he will be relied on as a comedic foil.
  • this movie just lost my interest now that rogen signed on
  • I love that casting. Aside from his voice (which he can't get rid of) I can actually see the likeness in Seth. And his acting prowess has greatly improved. Golden awards my be issued out, people. Let's not count this film out just yet. Sent from the iMore App
  • The guy is a pretty good actor. Should be very interesting.
  • Can Seth Rogen finally play someone other than Seth Rogen?
  • He could but I doubt he'll be given the chance. Posted from my TARDIS!
  • Well so much for it being a good movie
  • This movie is going to suck. They chose Seth Rogen out of all the countless talented actors in the pool? Can't wait to watch this fail.
