New Images Of Ashton Kutcher & Josh Gad As Steve Jobs & Steve Wozniak In 'Jobs'

As always, there will be no shortage of movies based on real life characters at Sundance. "Lovelace," "The Look Of Love," "Big Sur," "Kill Your Darlings" will be offering up cinematic tales based on true people, but perhaps the most high profile of the batch is "Jobs." Yes, it's the movie where Ashton Kutcher is playing pioneering (and late) founder of Apple, Steve Jobs. And it seems the advance word on this one right now, is mostly around Kutcher's uncanny likeness to the tech hero. 

"There is an eerie resemblance — he didn't have to do much to get there," co-star Josh Gad — who plays Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak — told USA Today. "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."

The film will focus on the early days of Apple, from the guys who made homebrew computers in their garage, and tells the story through to the launch of the iPod in 2001. Dermot Mulroney, Lukas Haas, J. K. Simmons and Matthew Modine round out the cast for the movie that has already been picked up by Open Road for a spring release (no date yet).

There is definitely a strong resemblance to young Jobs in those pics.


To soon, too far from the mark.
In trying to find close physical resemblance the casting team have completely ignored casting the 'spirit' of Jobs and Wozniak, both of whom must/would be pretty disappointed to see this. Kutcher looks like such a douche bag next to Jobs.


Hmm…. I think…. yeah… I think I'm going to go ahead and call… bullshit. Yeah, that feels about right.
