Ashton Kutcher Playing Steve Jobs: First Look
Ashton Kutcher is getting the opportunity of a lifetime for an actor in getting to play the role of the late Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs in a film titled JOBS. We are getting a first look at a clip from the film and judging from the clip Kutcher looks like he has done a superb job of portraying Jobs' resemblance and personality better than anyone could have predicted.
The movie stars Ashton Kutcher playing the role of Steve Jobs and chronologically goes through the major defining moments in Jobs' life. Viewers will get to see what drove Jobs on a daily basis from 1971 through 2001. IMDB describes JOBS as, "Steve Jobs' ascension from college dropout into one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century."
ETonline has released the first clip of the film:
"In the clip, Jobs (played by Ashton Kutcher) is raving about the operating system that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak (played by Josh Gad) created. While Jobs is certain that this will become a ubiquitous product for mass consumption, Wozniak needs convincing.
"Nobody wants to buy a computer," says Wozniak.
"How does somebody know what they want if they've never even seen it?" Jobs replies."
When Ashton Kutcher was cast to play Steve Jobs, many people thought that while he might physically resemble Steve Jobs, there was little faith that he would have the presence or acting ability to play Jobs. It appears that Kutcher might prove the naysayers wrong with his ability to take on the role and channel Jobs. JOBS will be released nationwide on April 19 and has been chosen to close the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
