To bring back a character to life on big screen is really a very difficult task but sometimes it happens that an actor’s performance is enough for making us forget the difference between the real and reel world. Same thing happened at the 42nd Telluride Film Festival during Universal’s “Steve Jobs” screening where Michael Fassbender mesmerized everyone with his performance as Steve Jobs. Read on for more details.
Yes, our own Magneto of “X-Men” fame made people forgetful about the reality with his awesome acting in the upcoming work of director Danny Boyle, producer Scott Rudin, and writer Aaron Sorkin.
“I saw a rough cut and I felt like I was actually watching Steve Jobs and the others (including Rogen’s dead-on portrayal of Wozniak), not actors playing them, I give full credit to Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin for getting it so right,” Steve Wozniak said, the friend and colleague of late Steve Jobs.
The Apple co-founder Wozniak while talking about Fassbender also praised the upcoming movie and said that in comparison to 2013’s Joshua Michael Stern directed and Ashton Kutcher starrer “Jobs,” Boyle’s “Steve jobs” is completely authentic.
The actor not only received round of applause from Wozniak but from everyone present there and some of them have even said that he’ll definitely deserves an Oscar for the same. “He completely owns the screen,” quoted Variety and in the same way The Hollywood Reporter also cited “You get the strong sense from Fassbender of a mind that is always several steps beyond everyone else’s.”
Well, we can imagine how good Fassbender is looking while playing Jobs’s character from the feedbacks about his performance in the film. One can also understands how much soul he put into the character because to play the legendary mastermind figure who was behind the establishment of Apple Inc. was not at all an easy task.
The movie, whose screenplay was created with the help of Walter Isaacson’s biography Steve Jobs, is slated for Oct. 9, 2015 release.
