Ashton Kutcher’s role as Steve Jobs has been controversial, but in the eyes of most people, there’s no denying the fact that they look very similar. An image tweeted by Ashton himself has further confirmed this, proving that the two look almost identical.
Yesterday, we reported that the first jOBS clip had been released. It showed Ashton Kutcher, who plays Steve Jobs, talking to Steve Wozniak, played by Josh Gad, about the invention of the system. For most people, the clip was an opportunity to judge Ashton Kutcher on his performance, but for Steve Wozniak, it was an opportunity to see how true-to-life the biopic is. As it turns out, not very.
The decision to have Ashton Kutcher portray the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs has been a controversial one. His recent films have all been comedies, most of which have been flops in the eyes of critics. I’ve always felt it seems like he plays the same character in each film, but am really eager to see how he plays Steve Jobs, as the two do look-alike.
TMZ has published photos taken of Ashton Kuther on his way to the film set of ‘Jobs: Get Inspired’ yesterday, dressed in the full Steve Jobs outfit, complete with the turtleneck jumper, jeans and white trainers.
The Two and a Half men star was revealed to be playing the late Apple CEO last month, which prompted a mostly angry response from most apple and film fans. The overall response was that Kutcher hasn’t really starred in a good film since the Butterfly Effect.
I was always quite impressed with the idea of Ashton Kutcher playing Jobs, and this image confirms to me that they do look remarkably like each other. Hopefully Kutcher can prove critics wrong and play a believable Steve Jobs.
The perfection and minimal design that Steve Jobs loved is truly shown in his notes, used to prepare him for the 2007 Keynote, which saw him reveal to the world for the first time, the Apple iPhone.
The image surfaced on Reddit linking to a Flickr account. It shows a beautifully minimal agenda decorated with different iOS icons to guide him through the iconic event.
