Funny or Die Also Did a Steve Jobs Movie

In addition to the Ashton Kutcher-starring jOBS and Aaron Sorkin's Steve Wozniak-approved Jobs project, we now have iSteve, the first feature film from comedy website Funny or Die, which will be available online on April 15. Dodgeball's Justin Long stars in the title role, while James Urbaniak plays Bill Gates and Lost's Jorge Garcia portrays Steve Wozniak. "In true Internet fashion, it’s not based on very thorough research," Funny or Die's Ryan Perez explained to the New York Times. After "essentially a cursory look at the Steve Jobs Wikipedia page," Perez wrote the 81-page script in just three days and filmed it in five. "It's very silly," he said, though the producer added that he thought it would win over even "the harshest fanboy critics."
