Dermot Mulroney Gets Jobs
He's on for the Apple founder biopic

Dermot Mulroney Gets Jobs

Though it's currently labouring under the awkward title jOBS, the first Steve Jobs biopic to make it out of the gate – which would be the indie starring Ashton Kutcher as the young Jobs – is now filming. And the latest cast member has been announced, with Dermot Mulroney signing on as Mike Markkula.

As the earliest investor in the embryonic Apple company being nurtured by Jobs and partner Steve Wozniak (played in the film by Josh Gad), Markkula became the third person to join it after the co-founders. He brought not just cold, hard cash, but business expertise and technical skill, helping to craft some of the nascent software.

But in later years, the tension within Apple over, in particular, Markkula siding with board members against Jobs, led the latter to leave the company he helped create in 1985.

Matt Whitely has written the script, with Swing Vote’s Joshua Michael Stern directing. Ahna O’Reilly is playing Chris-Ann Brennan, who had a daughter with Jobs, Matthew Modine is John Sculley, who took over the Apple board after Jobs left and Lukas Haas will be Daniel Kottke, another early Apple employee.

The movie will be out next year, though there’s no set date yet. We hope they set up some sort of keynote address to announce it. And then one a year later with news that there's a more advanced, faster version of the film ready to hit our screens...
