For one thing, instead of just two lonely leads, The Martian boasts a star-studded cast that seems to get bigger by the day.

Aaron Sorkin Christian Bale

We thought Christian Bale was a pretty solid choice to play Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle’s upcoming movie, but it turns out we weren’t half as excited as writer Aaron Sorkin is. Calling Bale “the best actor on the board in a certain age range,” Sorkin expressed his confidence that Bale would “crush it” as the late tech guru — in a role that is particularly difficult, and present in every single moment of the film.
