3. Aaron Sorkin isn’t an X-Men Fan

Popular German-Irish actor Michael Fassbender is a hot commodity these days, due to his roles in films like X-Men: First Class, Inglorious Basterds and 12 Years a Slave. However, when his name was brought into consideration for the role of Steve Jobs in an upcoming biopic, screenwriter/producer Aaron Sorkin had no clue who the Oscar nominated actor was. Hoping to get Tom Cruise, Christian Bale or Leonardo diCaprio to play the lead, Sorkin’s leaked email said, “I don’t know who Michael Fassbender is and the rest of the world isn’t going to care.” It seems he changed his tune, as Fassbender is now officially cast in the film.
