And the Academy Award goes to … Seth Rogen?
In the new film Steve Jobs, Seth channels Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and completely knocks it out of the park. The all-star cast also includes Michael Fassbender (Jobs), Kate Winslet (Joanna Hoffman) and Jeff Daniels (John Scully), but it’s the often-comedic Rogen who surprises audiences with his dramatic portrayal of The Woz.
HipHollywood hopped across the pond and spoke to Seth in London about the role. While it remains to be seen if the Academy and others will honor the actor for his performance, there is one person who absolutely loved it — Steve Wozniak. When asked if pleasing Woz was a priority, Rogen replied with a laugh saying, “No, it’s honestly not anything I put thought in to before I heard he liked it, but it’s great that he did. It was not at all my priority to make him happy.”
And although he didn’t focus on making Wozniak happy, he did spend time with him and study the Apple man. “The way he talked about computers is probably the thing that I found most absorbable,” Seth stated.
Check out Seth Rogen in Steve Jobs in select markets right now and nationwide on October 23rd.
TimesUp! Tracee Ellis Ross Wants More Money For ‘Blackish’
Tracee Ellis Ross is reportedly the latest star tackling gender wage gap in Hollywood head on.
As the #MeTooMovement continues to stay relevant around the world and the TimesUp campaign continues to grow, women are starting to speak out about making less money than their male co-stars.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ross makes significantly less money than her black-ish co-star, Anthony Anderson, and now is fighting for equal pay. Per the report, “Ellis Ross feels that if she isn’t brought up to Anderson’s level, she may opt to appear in fewer episodes to make up the disparity by guesting on another show.”
A source at ABC also suggested that a “new deal will significantly increase her compensation and cautioned that Anderson and Ellis Ross’ roles aren’t equal given that he has been attached to Black-ish from the start and is an executive producer.”
SIDE NOTE: That was also the argument when E! News host, Catt Sadler stepped down due to making less than Jason Kennedy. At the time, the network claimed Jason had other duties, which also included his contributions to the Today show.
Ross has yet to comment on the report, but if she does take a step back, this means the show will be more male dominated; after all, Zoe, played by Yara Shahidi, is now in college and has her own spinoff show, Grownish.
