As we see CEOs like Marissa Mayer on the cover of magazines and movies made about the lives of Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs, it is clear that the job of CEO, particularly in tech companies, has taken on celebrity status. These leaders give us technology that shapes our lives. They have harsh critics (Wallstreet) and big fans (shareholders) who can worship them or hate them from one day to the next.
So, let’s help Hollywood figure out which celebrities should play our favorite tech CEO’s when their life story gets made into a movie. Casting directors, pay attention!
I notice as I review this list that I’ve chosen mainly comedic actors. Well, it wouldn’t hurt to lighten some of these folks up a bit. Let me know if I missed any good ones or if you’ve got better celebrity look alikes to suggest. Hollywood needs our help because the plight of tech companies today is drama made for the big screen.
