First Photos of Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs

Many Apple fanboys were somewhat displeased to hear that Ashton Kutcher would be playing Steve Jobs in an upcoming biopic. Although the physical similarities were striking, many people felt that Kutcher simply could not be taken seriously as a dramatic actor. The movie has since added a few more cast members, including Josh Gad (21, The Rocker) as Steve Wozniak, and is now in production in Los Angeles.

This week TMZ has the first unofficial photos of Kutcher wearing the trademark black turtleneck and white sneakers. I don’t know that there is anything particularly unexpected about the look, but perhaps these photos will convince a few of the haters that he is right for the part. The movie is being directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote) and is now going under the working title Jobs: Get Inspired. Check out a larger photo after the jump and let us know what you think.

Around the Web:

  • Steven

    Is he going to gain weight to portray him as well?

  • patrik

    I’m gonna take a stab in the dark and say that I think he’ll do well.

    I was hoping this would be a gritty reboot. A younger Steve Jobs and the Steve Jobs from the future. Fighting with Bill gates.
