Ashton Kutcher jOBS

Let the buzz begin. It's official - the Steve Jobs indie biopic jOBS has been confirmed to premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in January. Announced this afternoon in the Premieres line-up is the film, directed by Joshua Michael Stern, starring Ashton Kutcher as the late Steve Jobs. Okay, so this is isn't exactly our very first look as there have been a lot of set photos have been floating around of Kutcher. But this is clearly a promo shot, and it looks pretty good. It resembles the real Steve Jobs Apple shot from circa ~70s, which I've added below. So the buzz begins for Kutcher at Sundance 2013 in jOBS - added it to my list.

Here's the first promo photo, as found by The Film Stage. I guess that spelling of jOBS for the title is official.

The Sundance 2013 announcement includes this description: jOBS (Director: Joshua Michael Stern, Screenwriter: Matt Whiteley) — 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. Cast: Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, Matthew Modine. We learned a lot about the film's plot back in April, which will indeed cover roughly 30 years in the life of the technology innovator. It's listed as the Closing Night Film, so it'll premiere in the later half of the festival beginning on January 17th, but we'll be there to catch it. See you in Park City!

    I'm a bit skeptical for this film right now, I'm afraid i will only be able to see Kutcher in this film rather than Steve Jobs. Kutcher to me isn't a transformative actor. For instance when i saw Lincoln, I believed Daniel was Lincoln, but that's cause he's the best at that skill. I just don't know yet, hopefully the trailer will set aside my worries.

    lovin it

    I think we really have yet to see what Kutcher can do. I don't feel like he's been tested enough. Not that I've seen, anyways. I'll watch this despite not caring at all about Jobs.

      Actually i'm really looking forward to Kutcher impressing me in a role like this cause i think it's about time he becomes a more serious actor. He's done too many comedies to where ihs presence is just getting old.
  • I hope they get Noah Wyle back for that Sorkin adaptation.
  • conradthegreat
    He does look just like him though doesn't he? p.s. Rest in Peace S.J.

      Jobs had a better moustache
    Dude, where's my Macbook Pro?
  • worst casting ever..
  • This is Ashton's time to prove himself, as long as his Steve Jobs interpretation is not a 'Michael Kelso' kind of 70s character it's cool.

      this is the big question - outside of his MK character, i've never been very impressed with kutcher.
      • Yeah me neither that's why I think this could be his game changer, but I'm not too sure about it

    Kutcher's face is just so punchable...
    Noah Wylie looked better. And is a better actor.
