You may love or hate Seth Rogen, but it looks like he’ll be playing the Woz.

According to MacRumors and Variety, Seth Rogen will play Steve Wozniak alongside Christian Bale, who has been cast in the role of Steve Jobs in Sony’s upcoming Jobs biopic. Rogen will have the opportunity to get advice directly from Wozniak, who is working as a consultant on the film.

Rogen is a popular actor who has starred in movies like Neighbors, Pineapple Express, Knocked Up and This Is the End. While Rogen often stars in comedic films, he has demonstrated his ability to do more serious work in movies like Take This Waltz and 50/50.

After several months of limbo after writer Aaron Sorkin finished the screenplay, production on Sony’s Steve Jobs movie is picking up. Danny Boyle, who directed Slumdog Millionaire has been announced as the director of the film, and just last week, Sony signed on Christian Bale to play Jobs.

While the previous JOBS movie with Ashton Kutcher focused on Jobs’ early life, Sony’s film will use material from Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs biography and will focus on three 30-minute scenes showing three of Apple’s product launches.

Rogen is reported to have not yet officially signed on, while Jessica Chastain is also being considered for an unspecified role in the film.
