Funny or Die Debuts ‘iSteve,’ Its First Full-Length Movie

By

Comedy video website Funny or Die has released its first movie this morning. Called iSteve, it’s a comedic biopic of Steve Jobs starring Justin Long as the Apple founder and it’s  now streaming on FOD. Clocking in at 79 minutes, it’s not only the first movie for Funny or Die but also the first biopic of Jobs to see a wide release, beating Ashton Kutcher’s Jobs out of the gate. iSteve was written and directed by Funny or Die staffer Ryan Perez, who says he only used Steve Jobs’s Wikipedia page and a few interviews as source material. It took Perez five days to write the script and another five days to shoot the movie. iSteve also stars James Urbaniak (Venture Bros.) as Bill Gates, Michaela Watkins (SNL) as Melinda Gates, and Jorge Garcia (Lost) as Steve Wozniak. Hopefully, this is the start of more feature-length movies – and minimally-researched comedic biopics – from Funny or Die.
