Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs?
by Nigel Chew
20 May 2012 - A celebrity news site, TMZ, posted a photoset of actor Ashton Kutcher in Apple’s late co-founder, Steve Jobs, typical wear. Apparently, the photos were taken as Kutcher was going to the set of an upcoming independent biopic titled Jobs: Get Inspired.
It’s not to be mixed up with Sony’s biopic Steve Jobs: The Movie, which is inspired by Walter Isaacson’s authorized bio book.
TMZ has said as the photo was taken, Kutcher was on his way to the set in Los Angeles. The actor was dressed in Jobs’ trademark blue jeans, black turtleneck sweater and New Balance running shoes. He’s even got the long hair and beard, looking quite like Apple’s late honcho when he was younger along with the forward-leaning walking posture. He seems to be getting quite into character, though seeing that Jobs was a complex man, it would be interesting to see if Kutcher can be convincing enough, especially when the actor’s best known for comedic works.
Jon Cryer is said to be Steve Wozniak in Jobs: Get Inspired. The movie is to cover Apple’s founder’s life from 1971 to 2000.
