At last month's D10 conference, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, The Social Network, A Few Good Men) sat down with Walt Mossberg to discuss his new HBO show The Newsroom (premiering June 24th) and his latest project, adapting Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs into a movie for Sony Pictures.

Just enjoy it and don't take anything too seriously.
Actors I could imagine pulling off the difficult task of playing Jobs are:
Daniel Day Lewis
All great actors, all possessing a complexity similar to Jobs, all with their own fire-burning-inside intensity. :apple:
Although I am looking forward to the "circus" version with Kutcher. Note the reference to the D10 interview term. :)
Dx interviews could be improved with 70% less host talk (run on sentences) and 70% more guest interviews.
No dis on Noah Wyle, but I'd rather see someone of a higher calibre than someone who stars in second rate television dramas. I want a film actor who really knows his stuff.
Just because you saw Noah Wyle in some made for tv movie does not mean that he is necessarily right for the role.
