Katherine Waterston joins ‘Jobs’ as Apple founder’s wife

Katherine Waterston joins ‘Jobs’ as Apple founder’s wife


Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs film Jobs has gotten more updates than a version of iOS. Now Deadline is reporting that Katherine Waterston, the lead actress in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice, has joined the film as Chrisann, Jobs’s first wife.

Early this week, there were numerous reports that Kate Winslet was in early talks to join the film alongside star Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak. But just like Natalie Portman’s role before, she too seems to have been scuttled.

Of course, any casting news about this film has to be taken with a grain of salt, as it was only a matter of days before Christian Bale was cast and then dropped out. And of course Danny Boyle was not the first director on Aaron Sorkin’s project, with David Fincher being the first to go. Even Sony and Scott Rudin dropped the rights to the film for it to be scooped up by Universal.

Jobs is set to start filming next year, but knowing Apple they’ll probably just release a new version in another six months.
