The first picture has been released depicting Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs in the film aptly titled "jOBS". When news first hit of Kutcher playing the brilliant tech guru, many did not believe he had the acting chops nor bore the physical demeanor to pull it off. From the picture below, the resemblance is definitely intact and rather impressive, at least aesthetically. Only time will tell if Kutcher is also able to master Jobs' energy and mannerisms.
The Sundance Film Festival Site released the following synopsis for the film, which was penned by Matt Whiteley and helmed by Joshua Michael Stern:
The true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history, jOBS chronicles the defining 30 years of Steve Jobs’ life. jOBS is a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently. Cast: Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, Matthew Modine.
"jOBS" is being released in 2013. Aaron Sorkin's other project called "Steve Jobs" is also in the works and both George Clooney and Noah Wyle are rumored to be up for the role. We'll keep you posted as the story develops.
