It looks like The Newsroom’s Jeff Daniels will reunite with writer Aaron Sorkin for the Danny Boyle helmed Steve Jobs biopic. According to a new report, he’s being eyed to play former Apple CEO John Sculley.

An official offer hasn’t been made as of yet, but The Dumb and Dumber To star is said to be the top choice for the role which is described as being a key supporting part. If he does end up joining the cast, he’ll star alongside Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs and Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.

Sculley served as Apple’s CEO between 1983 – 1993, and has actually played a role in helping Sorkin develop the movie after The Social Network scribe met with those who were part of Jobs’ inner circle.

It was revealed yesterday that Natalie Portman had decided to drop out after entering talks to join the cast of the biopic, so the hunt is back on to find an actress to play Mac marketing chief Joanna Hoffman.

The movie is based on Walter Isaacson’s biography Steve Jobs, and Sorkin has previously revealed that the movie will be broken up into three lengthy scenes, each of which will take place backstage before the launch of famous Apple products. These are said to be the Mac, NeXT and, of course, the iPod.
