Quickie: Seth Rogen joins Christian Bale, as Steve Wozniak, in Steve Jobs film

Seth Rogen has been cast as Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, in the upcoming Danny Boyle directed Steve Jobs film.  This comes just a few days after Christian Bale was cast in the lead role.  This is actually kind of an interesting casting choice.

Rogen is mostly known as a comedic actor, and I was under the impression this was the 'serious' Steve Jobs biopic, vs. Jobs, the film starring Ashton Kutcher.  That's not to say the character will be played from a nonsensical point of view; but it does make you wonder.

I'm a big fan of Seth Rogen and love his films.  I'm just not so sure he has the dramatic chops to keep up with the likes of Bale, in a movie made for Oscar season.  We'll have to wait and find out.

Ps... Jessica Chastain is also being rumored to join the cast.
