Ashton Kutcher Steve Jobs

We've already gotten a good look at Ashton Kutcher as the late Steve Jobs in the biopic jOBS (which has already been acquired snatched up by Open Road Films), but now we have a couple of fresh looks of co-star Josh Gad before Sundance gets underway. USA Today has a new photo (and they tweeted one as well) that shows Gad as Steve Wozniak, one of Apple's co-founders and the man responsible for creating the Apple I computer. Gad doesn't quite have the scarily-accurate physical resemblance to his real life counterpart that Kutcher has, but as long as he embodies the essence of the tech genius, jOBS should surprise a lot of haters.

Here are the two new photos showing Josh Gad and Ashton Kutcher in jOBS, originally from USA Today:

I've been on board with the casting of Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs since the day it was announced, and I don't doubt that he'll give a memorable performance, but Gad is more of a wild card for me because I'm not as familiar with his work. Aside from his performances in 21, Love and Other Drugs, and the new NBC series "1600 Penn," this will be his most high profile screen work to date, and we're really hoping he turns out to be one of the better aspects of this movie. It's on our Top 10 Most Anticipated Films of the Festival list, so we'll definitely have a review for you coming out of Sundance 2013 in the next week or two.

Joshua Michael Stern directs jOBS from a screenplay by Matt Whiteley, which tells the true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history, covering about 30 years in the life of tech guru Steve Jobs. jOBS is said to be a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently. It stars Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, and Matthew Modine. Open Road will distribute the movie, likely in the latter half of 2013. Looking forward to this?

        If that was supposed to be a comparison photo, it wasn't a good choice. They look nothing alike.

    The real question is, who's the better actor: Kutcher or the beard?

    Somehow I can't take that guy seriously, so for however realistic Ashton looks he just undermines everything!

    ashton imo was pretty solid in butterfly effect but he seems to have not done anything substantial since that film
