Leonardo Dicaprio is in talks to star in a new film about Steve Jobs, according to 'The Hollywood Reporter.'
The movie -- written by Aaron Sorkin -- is based on Walter Isaacson's best-selling biography of the late Apple co-founder.
Nothing is official yet, but this kind of role would not be new for Dicaprio. He's portrayed high-profile figures in previous movies-- including J. Edgar Hoover and Howard Hughes.

Ellen Degeneres has a new show on HGTV.
The show is a competition series called "Ellen's Design Challenge."
It will have six contestants who will compete against each other to design and build furniture in a 24-hour period.
The show debuts sometime next year.

Aretha Franklin might sue the satirical website "News Nerd."
The website published a fake story claiming Pattie Labelle was "arrested and charged with assault and battery" after she attacked Franklin with "a Mayweather style right and left."
Franklin's lawyers says it amounts to commercial exploitation and if they do file the case -- they will ask for at least $10 million in damages.
