First look at Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs in biopic


jobstribute3The first official shot of Ashton Kutcher in his role as Steve Jobs in the upcoming biopic has been released by the Sundance Institute before the film’s premiere at the famous festival.

The independent film jOBS (yes the J is meant to be lower case) will be the closing night film of the Sundance Film Festival on January 27.

This first picture of the Two and Half Men star Ashton Kutcher in character as Steve Jobs shows a remarkable resemblance to the former Apple co-founder and CEO.

The image is actually modelled on an actual picture of the late Steve Jobs taken while sitting on his desk in the first years after forming Apple as a company.
