It seems Michael Fassbender has found a new fan in Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, who has revealed he loves the actor’s new Steve Jobs biopic.

The movie, also named Steve Jobs, screened at the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado, USA over the weekend.

The film follows the life of Steve Jobs and is based on Walter Isaacson’s controversial, but authorised, biography published shortly after Jobs’ death in 2011.

Wozniak praised the film’s actors including Michael Fassbender, who portrays Jobs in the movie.

“I saw a rough cut and I felt like I was actually watching Steve Jobs and the others, not actors playing them, I give full credit to [director] Danny Boyle and [writer] Aaron Sorkin for getting it so right,” Wozniak said.

The movie also stars Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels and Michael Stuhlbarg.

Seth Rogen takes on the role of Wozniak.

The Biopic follows Sorkin’s The Social Network, which is said to be a companion piece to this latest film.

In 2013, an attempt at a Jobs biopic, titled Jobs and starring Ashton Kutcher, was universally panned by critics and audiences alike.
