First Official Press Shot of Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs Released, 'jOBS' to Premiere at Sundance




Along with an announcement that the Ashton Kutcher-led jOBS [sic] will premiere this winter at the Sundance Film Festival, the festival has also released the first official image of Kutcher as Steve Jobs.

From Vanity Fair magazine:
Quote:
Courtesy of the Sundance Film Festival, which, just moments ago, announced that jOBS--weird capitalization choice theirs, not ours--would premiere at this year's festival, the photo shows the Two and a Half Men lead in a cubicle. Outfitted in a button-down shirt, jeans, and a goatee--Kutcher's Jobs, who leans against a desk in front of a poster bearing the IBM slogan THINK--bears an eerie resemblance to a vintage photo of an actual Steve Jobs floating around on the Internet. That vintage photo also features Steve Jobs's Jobs in a button-down shirt, jeans, and a goatee, leaning against a desk in front of a poster bearing the IBM slogan THINK.
It was announced earlier this year that Kutcher would play the iconic CEO in an independent film that is separate from the Sony project that will be based on Walter Isaacson's autobiography. That film is being written by West Wing and Newsroom scribe Aaron Sorkin.

Sundance's description of the film:
Quote:
jOBS / U.S.A. (Director: Joshua Michael Stern, Screenwriter: Matt Whiteley) -- 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. CLOSING NIGHT FILM
The 2013 Sundance Film Festival will take place in Park City, Utah from January 17th through the 27th.

He does look a lot like a young Steve Jobs. He is perfect in that regard.

Let's hope his acting is a little better than the other non-That 70's Show roles he's tried doing before.

If its released on blu-ray, steve jobs will be rolling over in his grave.

He'll also be rolling over in his grave if consumers are given more than one option as well. Dude was a psychotic anti-choice freak.

Ashton Kutcher looks pretty accurate to Steve Jobs.

Sheesh, have a little respect wikus. Steve Jobs was an extraordinary man who built the most successful company the world has even seen. You could argue that he not only did this once, but twice! It's an amazing feat, and to label him as "psychotic" is disgraceful on your part, all he did was execute a product strategy for HIS company's products! What have you done?

And you know, many of us around here would label someone who posts endless negative comments in a forum designed for Apple enthusiasts as "psychotic".

He certainly does look the part. Let's hope he can act the part.

Yes, because people are surely going to comment about the odd capitalization of the title.

I don't think he is. I think he is simply enquiring as to who urinated over your breakfast cereal.

Of all the things to complain about...

This is called professionalism. Maybe you get it but what if someone doesn't?
