Fassbender Doesn’t Look Like Steve Jobs

Michael Fassbender‘s resemblance to Steve Jobs is pretty close to nil. His casting as the late Apple genius is analogous, say, to Brad Pitt playing Richard Nixon. Director Danny Boyle, currently filming the Aaron Sorkin-authored, Scott Rudin-produced drama about Jobs, costarring Jeff Daniels and Kate Winslet, that will open on October 9th, has obviously decided against giving Fassy a Jobs-like nose or floppy Jobs-like hair. Boyle had a Jobs look-alike when Christian Bale was on the train, but that flew out the window when Bale abandoned the role. We will have to forget, with Fassbender, any thought of physical resemblance; the actor will have to act.
