The movie "Steve Jobs" delves into the complex relationships the Apple co-founder had with many of those closest to him, including his daughter Lisa and former Apple CEO John Sculley.But screenwriter Aaron Sorkin said that when he talked to the real people from Jobs' life, one person who stood out was Steve Wozniak.
Sorkin spent some time with Woz before he wrote the script, and though he said he got a lot of the typical Woz flavor - a guy without a care in the world who has no regrets not having Jobs' rockstar persona - he observed, "That's the way Woz is for about 10 minutes.""Then without much prodding at all you begin to feel like you're talking to Garfunkel who is talking about Paul Simon," Sorkin told Business Insider last weekend before the film premiered at the New York Film Festival. "And that's when I knew there was a point of friction that I absolutely wanted to write about."
Woz, played by Seth Rogen, is portrayed in a similar way in the movie.
This leads to Woz and Jobs having a verbal public argument towards the film's end at the launch of the iMac.
