HOLLYWOOD – John Goodman revealed that he spent time in the hospital as a result of his preparation to play Steve Jobs in a new feature film called jOBS.
Goodman said that he wanted to reproduce a faithful portrait of the tech innovator and tycoon and so took to one of Jobs’ infamous fruitarian diets. Speaking at Sundance, Goodman remarked:
First of all, the fruitarian diet can lead to, like, some severe issues. I ended up in the hospital like two days before we started shooting the movie. I was, like, doubled over in pain. My pancreas levels were completely out of whack, which was really terrifying … considering everything.
The film debuted last Friday at the film festival in Utah to somewhat mixed reactions, including questions about the casting of John Goodman. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said: “I don’t really know if Goodman is right for the role. I know I’m going to be biassed but his accent is off.”
Aaron Sorkin is prepping another movie of Jobs’ life, produced by Sony Pictures and based on Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography of the late Apple CEO and founder. Jack Black is rumoured to be preparing for the role.
