Of course, this isn’t Seth Rogen’s first dramatic turn, nor is it his first time playing an important, real person. The actor, best known for roles in films like Superbad and Sausage Party starred as Steve Wozniak in the Aaron Sorkin-scripted, Danny Boyle-directed film Steve Jobs just a few years ago. Actors like Jim Carrey, Steve Carell and Adam Sandler have all made the jump from comedy to drama in the past, and have shown some serious skills when the project and direction was suitable. This could be a great opportunity for Rogen to break out from the types of roles he always plays and show that he has some real range. At the same time, while I don’t doubt his commitment to the role or ability, but I’m not sure I see it. His looks and voice just simply don’t approximate those of the famed newsman. But perhaps he showed the producers and casting director something special that made him more than just a non-traditional pick.
