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.

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
