Seth Rogen may soon have his big dramatic break, perhaps joining Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, as Jobs’ Apple co-founder. A source confirmed to EW that Rogen is in talks to play Steve Wozniak. Sony had no comment.

Well, that didn’t take long: Just a few hours after EW posted the first clip from jOBS — a Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher as the tech visionary and Josh Gad as his partner Steve Wozniak — Wozniak himself took to Gizmodo’s comment boards to deride the film as inaccurate. “Not close,” he wrote. “We never had such interaction and roles…I’m not even sure what it’s getting at…personalities are very wrong although mine is closer.”
Later, Wozniak would expand on his comment in two emails to Gizmodo, calling the scene “totally wrong.” He objected to the film’s styling — “I never looked like a professional” — as well as the way the clip seemed to credit Jobs with ideas Wozniak claims as his own: “The ideas of computers affecting society did not come from Jobs. They inspired me.” He concluded by poking fun at the Apple guru’s mercenary nature — “By the way, the Apple I was the 5th time I designed something just for fun that Steve found a way to turn into money.”
When asked for comment, jOBS publicist Amanda Lundberg responded with the following statement:
