“I didn’t really know much about him,” admits Michael Fassbender when asked about playing the title character in “Steve Jobs” (watch below). “I suppose the thing that really stuck with me was meeting people who knew him — John Sculley, Joanna Hoffman, Steve Wozniak, Andy Hertzfeld … You could see he was still very much present in their lives. Even if their relationships were difficult, there was a sadness and a love there for him.”

The film by Oscar champ Danny Boyle(“Slumdog Millionaire”) paints a complex portrait of the man as a brutal taskmaster with conflicting emotions about his family and his legacy. The actors credit the screenplay by Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin(“The Social Network”) as an essential but demanding part of the process.

Recalls Kate Winslet, who plays Jobs’ marketing guru Joanna Hoffman, “I have to be honest, it was terrifying. I remember all of us walking into the room on day one of rehearsal when you’re trying out your accent and hoping to God that everyone else isn’t looking at you and thinking, ‘She’s shit’. When we walked onto the set, we had to be that well-oiled machine, we had to be ready to go, we had to have Sorkin-ese in our back pockets.”

That difficulty wasn’t lost on Sorkin. “Each of them, at at least one point in the movie, has a long list of things to say. I went over to Jeff [Daniels] and I said, ‘Michael’s a really big Irish guy. I think he’s going to beat me up.’ And Jeff, who had been doing this for three years with ‘The Newsroom’ stared at me and said, ‘I’m a really big Irish guy, and I’m going to beat you up.'”

“Steve Jobs” opens Friday (Oct. 9) in limited release with a nationwide roll-out to follow on October 23.

Kate Winslet and Jimmy Fallon attempted to make each other look as strange as possible on Wednesday night’s episode of The Tonight Show.

In a new segment called “Photo Booth,” the host and Steve Jobs star fittingly used iPads to shoot some freakish photos of each other through the Photo Booth app.

Using features like “mirror-effect” and “squeeze,” Winslet marveled at the ability to enlarge her forehead and give herself a “butt-face.”

The actress also wondered how taking pictures qualified as a talk show.

“This isn’t really a talk show I’m on, is it?” Winslet joked. “What are we doing?”

Kate Winslet is set to play Joanna Hoffman in the new movie about Steve Jobs’ life.

Hoffman was one of Apple’s first employees, and she is known for standing up to the Apple co-founder.

From the moment she heard about the role, Winslet wanted it. But she looks nothing like brown haired, Polish-Armenian Hoffman.

In a recent interview with Vulture, Winslet spoke about how she managed to convince producer Scott Rudin that she was right for the part:

“So I put a wig on my head and scrubbed my face of all makeup. I took one photograph of myself, and, lucky me, I have an email address of one Mr. Scott Rudin, and I just sent him the photo with no subject. Soon there’s this call saying, okay, okay, can Danny come and meet with Kate in Australia? And I’m like, “Holy f–k, what have I started?” They sent me the script, and immediately I thought, This is amazing, I really want to play this part. I had the meeting with Danny, and I just said, “This is how I would play this part, this is who I believe that she is,” and he said, “I want you to play this part.” So then cut to three and a half weeks later, I’m in a rehearsal room in San Francisco. We rehearsed each act like a play and then filmed it in order from start to finish.”

Michael Fassbender is leading the cast as Steve Jobs, and Seth Rogen will play Steve Wozniak.

The film is due to be released this October.
