Like Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs was a complicated visionary who became a polarizing figure. Under Jobs’ watch, Apple revolutionized several business, including personal computers, music, computer-generated animation and mobile phones. In the process, he became known as one of the greatest innovators of his generation. At the same time, he was unapologetic about his difficult personality, was at one point ousted at Apple and was criticized for the incredibly harsh treatment of workers in China who assembled Apple products.

Tom Hardy Comments On Playing Notorious British Gangsters Reggie & Ronnie Kray: “All The Plans Are On The Table….”
Following a report earlier this week linking him to a movie about the notorious Kray Twins from writer-director Brian Helgeland, Tom Hardy has confirmed to the Mail that he would “absolutely love” to play both Reggie and Ronnie Kray, and looks set to star in the film version of their criminal lives. Hardy told the outlet, “All the plans are on the table. There’s a lot of crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s, and there’s a lot of shift and geography to work out.” Hardy is said to be in discussion to star as both brothers in ‘Legend,’ the film’s working title, which will chart the tortured and unique relationship between gangsters Ronald and Reginald Kray, the identical twin brothers infamous for their criminal exploits in London during the 1950s and 1960s.
‘It would be difficult,” Tom Hardy said about the mechanics of playing two characters sharing a lot of the same screen time. ‘It’s quite technical and I’m a bit of an anorak.” He added, “There’s a physical transfer; we’d have to shoot one bit, go away come back and shoot it all again with another part. I’ve never dreamt of playing two people on the screen!” Currently in development, the production is aiming to shoot in the UK later this year. Working Title, whose recent features include ‘Rush,’ ‘About Time’ and ‘The Two Faces of January,’ is developing and producing the project.
