This is what Michael Fassbender looks like as Steve Jobs

Production is under way on the Aaron Sorkin-penned Universal-produced Steve Jobs biopic, and thanks to the high-powered zoom lenses of the entertainment press we have a glimpse of the main characters in costume. So now we now know what Michael Fassbender looks like when dressed up as Steve Jobs complete with the long locks and bowtie, as well as Seth Rogen with extra-messy hair and Steve Wozniak's glasses.

Casting in films can be difficult, and while we have little doubt about Fassbender's abilities as an actor, he's kind of lacking in the "looks like Steve Jobs" department. There's only so much a German-Irish actor can do to look like the American-born Swiss-Syrian Jobs, we suppose. But it's not the facial features that will really sell Fassbender as Jobs — it's the mannerisms and speech patterns. At least he's not Tom Cruise.

For what it's worth, we're definitely getting a Wozniak vibe from Rogen here and not so much of his most-recent cinematic venture.

  • I'm confused. "Bow-Tie era" Steve Jobs did not have hair anything like that. And Fassbinder looks like an English Lord not a Syrian immigrant. He's not even in the same general gene pool as Steve Jobs. They might as well have cast a black woman for the role as Fassbinder.

  • Seth Rogan as Woz! Nice!
  • We need to see how he looks with the salt and pepper beard and balding head. I guess we need to look beyond resemblance here.

  • Fassbender is a phenomenal actor. Period. Yes it's true that the studios initial choice of Leo De Caprio would have been awesome but then he never really showed his interest and refused. It happens all the time. Christian 'Batman' Bale would have been great too... but let's give this guy a chance. Fassbender has been superb in almost all the roles he has played : Shame, 12 years a slave, X Men-Days of the future past, Prometheus - so let us wait and watch what he brings to play Steve Jobs. He might again surprise us all with a great performance. Sent from the iMore App
