Michael Stuhlbarg Speaks on Filming Steve Jobs Movie: 'Unlike Anything I've Ever Done'

Michael Stuhlbarg, who plays early Apple employee Andy Hertzfeld in Aaron Sorkin's upcoming Steve Jobs movie, spoke with Collider about his experience shooting the movie and shared some insight into the three-act structure of the film.

According to Stuhlbarg, the Steve Jobs movie was a "very unique project" with a rehearsal process that was split between each of the acts, with the actors spending two weeks rehearsing and then two weeks shooting the movie at each different location where the product unveilings took place. The film is centered around three product launches for the original Mac, the NeXT Computer, and the iMac.

This shooting method, says Stuhlbarg, was "unlike anything I've ever done to this point and probably unlike anything I'll ever do again. He said it brought the actors together "in an extraordinary way."

Also, it kind of gave us something in the telling of the story that you don't often get, which is a sense of momentum of what a story is telling you. He got the opportunity to get the barrage of nonsense that was being thrown at him throughout the entire story. It was just unlike anything I've ever done before.

Stuhlbarg also spoke about the experience of working on a highly desirable Aaron Sorkin screenplay and his take on Andy Hertzfeld's relationship with Steve Jobs, all of which can be read in the original interview on Collider or seen in the video below.


The Steve Jobs movie will premiere at the 53rd annual New York Film Festival on October 3 before seeing a wider release on October 9. The film, which was written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle, stars Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs, Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as Joanna Hoffman, and Jeff Daniels as John Sculley.

how many of these *chinese voice " city" * movies does the world need?

How many movies has the world ever needed? Like every other film, this is something to enjoy. If you don't, it's not for you. How many more "how many more … do we need" comments do we need?

mine was a rhetorical question on a public forum board. you don't have to actually answer to everybody you don't agree with, ya know.

If you post, you are inviting a response. Don't post if you don't want a response.
You don't have to actually post every random thought you have on a public forum board, ya know.

I haven't seen very many if any, but I'm hardly an apologist given that this is simply an issue of personal taste.

I never answered your rhetorical question; I asked a couple of my own. As for the bolded text, you aren't exactly following your own advice.
