All right, so Steve Jobs has nothing to do with Jobs, the Ashton Kutcher biopic about late Apple cofounder and CEO Steve Jobs — except for the fake that they’re about the same person. The twist, supposedly, for this new Jobs biopic, which is directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin, is that the whole film is set at and around three different Apple product launches. (Kutcher’s version featured a more traditional biopic structure).

Aaron Sorkin and Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs biopic has certainly become one of the most troubled productions in recent memory: After replacing a director, losing two leading men, and switching studios from Sony to Universal, the upcoming film has hit another bump in the road. Natalie Portman, who entered negotiations to star in the untitled Jobs biopic just before Thanksgiving, has decided to take a pass.

It's been a bumpy road for Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs biopic: the change of director from David Fincher to Danny Boyle, the change of leading man from Leonardo DiCaprio to Christian Bale to a big question mark, and now apparently a change of studio, as Sony has dropped the project entirely. But right on the heels of that announcement comes news that Universal is likely to save the day.

"Pete! What did I say?! We're not doing an Aaron Sorkin sketch!" The Aaron Sorkin parody sketch has been done before, done well, and then ceaselessly imitated. It's old material, people, and the world doesn't need any more old-- wait. Wait, no, no, we were wrong, because Seth Meyers has just breathed spectacular new life into the Aaron Sorkin sketch, thanks to a cleverly designed send-up from last night's episode of 'Late Night With Seth Meyers.'

The mere mention of 'A Few Good Men' instantaneously elicits everyone's "you can't handle the truth" impression, but few remember that writer Aaron Sorkin original staged the show on Broadway before the famous Tom Cruise-Jack Nicholson film. Now, NBC looks to follow up its 'Peter Pan Live!' by returning to those Broadway roots, staging a live TV adaptation of 'A Few Good Men.'
