Ashton Kutcher finds his Steve Wozniak in these new photos from jOBS

Jan. 16, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Looks like Ashton Kutcher is going to Sundance since his biopic, jOBS will be closing the festival on January 26th.

These new pics from the film show Kutcher as Steve Jobs and Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak, and what a pair they make. I'm actually interested in Kutcher's take on the Apple visionary after the glowing review Gad gave.

In an interview with USA Today, Gad said, "There is an eerie resemblance he didn't have to do much to get there,'' says Gad. "When he showed up, it sent a ripple of shock throughout the set. Everyone was like, 'We're in the presence of Jobs. Let's go do this.' It was literally like being in the room with the creator of Apple. This is one of those roles that's the perfect fit."

I also found the last statement that Gad made kind of strange. Part of the film chronicles where the idea began in the Palo Alto garage where the very company began:

"We were blessed with the opportunity to actually shoot in that garage. It was so eerie to go back there and think, 'This is where it all started.' And then you notice everyone texting on their iPhone. It was otherworldly."

Check out the photos below.

Synopsis: The film covers Jobs from his early years as an impressionable youth and wayward hippie, through his initial successes and infamous ousting, to his storybook return and ultimate triumphs as a man who set out to change the world and did just that. jOBS chronicles the 30 most defining years of Steve Jobs life, as seen through his, colleagues, and friends eyes. Dark, honest, and uncompromising, jOBS plunges into the depths of his character, creating an intense dialogue-driven story that is as much a sweeping epic as it is an immensely personal portrait of Steve Jobs life. A rousing narrative of this business and tech icon, jOBS pulls no punches and does not speculate, telling only the candid and captivating account of the life of Steven Paul Jobs.

He looks a lot like young Jobs...

Unfortunately Kutcher is a terrible actor and this film will suffer for it. Jobs was a very interesting, multifaceted person which you will almost certainly get no sense of from this film because Kutcher is talentless. Gad was a really great choice for Wozniak, though.

He's dead on

I've watched 2 Steve Jobs documentaries in the last weeks with photos and outtakes and there's moments - specially in his 30's - where Jobs looks just like Kutcher. I mean uncanny crazy resemblance. So if he can pull the right tone - meaning act like his ego is 10 times bigger - then he'll be great.

The guy was an asshole who invented a product...

Why do we praise a man who can be blamed for the downfall of education and rise of laziness? These apple products are nothing but hype. I am an IT professional and I think it is crazy how lazy people are becoming because technology allows them to be. It is advancing too fast and we are going to wind up like the people in the movie Wall-E.

I'm almost embarrassed to say (not in present company, but just in general) that I really, really, REALLY don't like Ashton Kutcher. There are a lot of actors and celebrities who I'd be willing to watch in the right role, but basically anything post-That 70s Show, his off-screen persona has pretty much poisoned me against. There are few actors I can say that about. And the possibility that this might even be a good movie (his star has faded and so, hopefully, too, his ego - I dunno, I don't

For the record, I don't think he's talentless, I just have zero desire to support anything he's a part of.

I'm willing to give Ashton Kutcher a shot at being Steve Jobs. Just because I've pretty much hated him in everything else he's done doesn't mean he can't hit one out of the park.

Never was an Ashton Kutcher fan...

but give the guy a chance to prove himself. Good roles don't come to everyone, and for all you know, this might be his calling to a better acting career. He might just kill this role with a vengeance and move on to even greater roles. AGAIN, I have always been annoyed by this guy...I fucking hate "that 70's show," but as a person of charity Ashton is a great guy. I think he just hasn't met the right script

I don't think I'll be able to watch this movie without thinking to myself "that's Aston Kutcher pretending to be Steve Jobs" every three minutes. I don't neccessarily hate Kutcher, it's just a bad casting decision IMO, it's the kind that distracts me from a movie..

If it has Kutcher, then I will not be seeing it. The only thing that he has done that I have liked is The Butterfly Effect and Dude, Where's my Car to a certain extent.
