The Sundance Film Festival has released the first official press shot of Ashton Kutcher portraying the iconic Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs.The image shows the Two and a Half Men star sitting on a desk, shoes off, glasses in his hand, piercing stare with an old computer in the back and the “THINK” poster hung on his cubicle.
The resemblance to the actual Steve Jobs photo bearing said elements is striking to say the least. If we didn’t know any better we’d probably mistake Kutcher for the late Apple CEO.
Sundance says jOBS, directed by Joshua Michael Stern and written by Matt Whiteley, depicts “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,” according to the festival organizers.
Ashton Kutcher will star as Steve Jobs, and Josh Gad will portray his friend and partner, Steve Wozniak. Other actors featured in the film in different roles include Dermot Mulroney, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, and Matthew Modine.
