Since Jobs died on Oct. 6, there has been chatter about making a movie to profile his life. Sony is planning a cinematic adaptation of Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs bio, according to The Los Angeles Times, which reported that Social Network writer Aaron Sorkin was among a short list of screenwriters being recruited for the project.
Wyle, as some readers may recall, played Jobs in Pirates of Silicon Valley, a movie that aired on TNT in 1999. As the video below demonstrates, he also memorably stood in for Jobs at the opening of Macworld that year.
