If you've never seen this movie before, it's worth the watch - or at least the space on your DVR.
Tonight, TNT will air the Pirates of Silicon Valley, the 1999 Emmy-nomiated telefilm about the late co-founder Steve Jobs. The network will air back-to-back broadcasts, which stars Noah Wyle as Steve Jobs, Anthony Michael Hall as Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Joey Slotnick as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. It's a great watch for anyone who isn't familiar with the early days of Steve and the Apple company.
Upon hearing the news of Steve's passing, Noah issued this statement, saying:
"Portraying him in Pirates of Silicon Valley was as challenging and as fulfilling of a role as I will have in my career. I had the honor of meeting him shortly after the movie aired and was struck by his sincerity and self-deprecating sense of humor. We have lost a visionary whose innovations will continue to impact our society forever."
The world is in mourning, but we're glad that there are so many ways to remember Steve and his life.
