Film: Ooh, you look just like that Steve Jobs
What, no turtleneck?! We can assume that comes later in the forthcoming Steve Jobs biopic, new details of which were released today.
The man pictured is Ashton Kutcher looking uncannily like the late Apple boss in his shirt-sleeves days. The image emerged yesterday to promote jOBS, which will close the Sundance Film Festival in Utah next month.
The image is a play on a photo of Jobs posing on a desk in his early days as the king of computing. In the original, Jobs, who died in October last year, wore a pink shirt and a paunch, but the beard and hair are identical. To his right sits a 1977 Apple II computer.
Kutcher is the only big name in a drama directed by Joshua Michael Stern. It will span three decades of the entrepreneur’s life to 2000 and is described on the Sundance website as “a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently”.
