Whats going on: Boyle & DiCaprio for Jobs biopic?; ESPN gets NFL Playoffs; Fallon’s Brian Williams rap; NETFLIX to raise prises.
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that “Sony Pictures is in talks with Danny Boyle to direct the biopic of the late Apple Computer co-founder. Boyle is said to have approached Leonardo DiCaprio to star.”
The film will be written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), based on the best-selling biography of Jobs by Walter Isaacson.
If both Boyle and DiCaprio are on board, The Jobs film would reunite the duo as they previously worked together in 2000 in the feature film The Beach. Neither has previously worked with Sorkin.
Sources are saying that the deals are not done. This is definitely worth keeping up with. Loads of potential.
“We’re thrilled to televise our first Wild Card playoff game and we thank the NFL for the opportunity,” said ESPN President John Skipper. “This game will be among the highest-rated programs of the year on cable and it is compelling content that will help us better serve football fans during the postseason.”
ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” team of Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden and sideline reporter Lisa Salters will call the Wild Card game.
The rich get richer. I like the idea. More Gruden is good for everyone.

Thanks House of Cards, your awesomeness is leading to an increase in prices with the popular Netflix.
The increase, to take place sometime before July, will hike prices by $1 or $2 per month for new customers. The company’s nearly 36 million current subscribers will continue to pay $8 per month for at least the next year, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said on Monday.
“When we look at the shows and movies that we will be able to get if we have a bigger budget, it’s exciting,” Hastings told The Associated Press. “We want to make the service better and better so more people will join.”
