Rumor: George Clooney in the Running for Steve Jobs Role

When word first got out about the possibility of a movie about Steve Jobs' life, we were among many that thought Noah Wyle might be asked to reprise the role he played so well in Pirates of Silicon Valley. However, if the latest rumors are to be believed, Noah might have some competition from one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors.

According to the Now Magazine, George Clooney and Noah Wyle are 'battling it out' for the role of Jobs. Leaving aside the fact that Noah has already successfully played Steve once (and Steve actually thought he did a good enough job to ask him to do it again at MacWorld), Now doesn't cite a source for this piece of information, so we're taking this one with a massive grain of salt.

Still, it's possible that George Clooney really is in the running to play Steve Jobs. If that's the case, it's also possible that it might end up being the most poorly cast role since George Clooney played Batman.
