Hollywood may be competitive, but the latest exchange between Seth Rogan and Josh Gad — both of whom have now portrayed Apple mogul co-founder Steve Wozniak — proves that there are still actors who appreciate each other’s work. Rogen currently stars as Wozniak in the Danny Boyle directed Steve Jobs, while Gad played the character in the 2013 film Jobs, directed by Joshua Michael Stern and starring Ashton Kutcher. This weekend, Gad sent out the following tweets praising Rogen’s performance, with Rogen quickly returning the compliment.
@joshgad thanks man. I kept thinking how happy I was you were in the other one because you for sure would have stolen the part from me.
