Katherine Waterston Takes a Lead Role in Universal’s Steve Jobs Film

By

Following her turn as Shasta in Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice, Katherine Waterston is moving over to Universal's Steve Jobs biopic. Deadline reports the actress is tasked with playing a lead role as Jobs's first longtime girlfriend and partner, Chrisann Brennan, who is also the mother of his first child. The movie, which will be directed by Danny Boyle (and written by Aaron Sorkin), should begin production in 2015. Waterston joins Michael Fassbender, who's playing Jobs; Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak; and Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld. Sadly, no sign of Sportello here — yet.
