Seth Rogen on Playing a Role in ‘Steve Jobs’

Actor Seth Rogen, who plays Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) co-founder Steve Wozniak in the film ‘Steve Jobs’, spoke with FOX Business Network’s Deirdre Bolton about his role in the movie.

“Honestly, I was skeptical that I would want to do it when I first heard about it,” he said. “Then I read the script and it really blew my mind. It's one of the best, if not the best written scripts I've ever read in my entire life.”

He added: “As a writer it pains me greatly to say that and it fills me with both rage and jealousy. But it really just blew my mind and Danny Boyle is someone I'm a huge fan of. I really wasn't interested in Steve Jobs at all going into the movie. It was just the work itself was incredible to me and so I wanted to be a part of it.”

On a different topic, Rogen said he believes there is a gender pay gap issue in Hollywood.

“I think that it's [the pay gap] real and I don't want to tell people what their responsibility is, but I personally view it as my responsibility to try to make that gap disappear as much as humanly possible,” Rogen said. “I think Hollywood has a lot of problems… I would advocate for trying to not have there be a massive gap between how much men and women get paid to do the same thing, and how many people of color are represented in films and television.”
