Ashton Kutcher on the set of the new Steve Jobs biopic called 'Jobs' in Los Angeles, CA June 18th. Kutcher hasn't changed his look much for this role, but he still looks the part. From hollywoodreporter.com:
"Ashton Kutcher will star as Steve Jobs in Jobs, an independent biopic being produced and financed by Five Star Institute's Mark Hulme. Joshua Michael Stern is set to begin principal photography while Kutcher is on hiatus from Two and a Half Men. Kutcher is a natural to play Jobs; the resemblance between the two is unmistakable. It's a high-profile assignment for Kutcher, and Jobs looks to get off the ground before Sony pulls together its own biopic on the man behind Apple Inc. Stern (Swing Vote) will direct Jobs from a script by Matt Whiteley.
The film will chronicle Jobs' meteoric rise from Northern California hippie to co-founder of Apple.
Looking back at some pictures of Jobs when he was younger (although according to Mitch Hedberg, "One time, this guy handed me a picture of him, he said,"Here's a picture of me when I was younger." Every picture is of you when you were younger."), and Kutcher does look a lot like the Apple Icon. It's always difficult to see an actor play against type and this will be no different. We're all so used to him as the goofy guy he was in That 70's Show, Two and a Half Men and Dude, Where's My Car to name a few. Hopefully he pulls it off. Jobs is scheduled to be released next year.
