George Clooney has had a lot of important roles in his life: the guy with the feathered hair on "Roseanne," the guy with the Caesar cut on "ER," and maybe, if he plays his cards right, the guy in the black turtleneck and blue jeans in the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic.
The Sun reports that rumors are swirling that Clooney will play the late Apple CEO in an upcoming movie based on Jobs' life. Jobs, who died from pancreatic cancer on Oct. 5, 2011, had already been portrayed on screen by Clooney's former "ER" castmate Noah Wyle in the 1999 made for TV movie "Pirates of Silicon Valley."
It seems that Wyle may give Clooney a run for his money when it comes to playing Jobs again; Wyle is reportedly also in the running for the role in the upcoming biopic, rumored to start filming sometime next year
Whether or not the actors end up in the movie may be of little consequence to them however. Wyle has his hands full playing lead character Tom Mason in the TV series "Falling Skies," while Clooney has spent the past year hard at work on "The Descendants" and "The Muppets," both scheduled for release this month, as well as sci-fi thriller "Gravity," which hits theaters in 2012.
