TMZ, a celebrity news site, just posted a set of nice photos depicting actor Ashton Kutcher dressed in Apple’s late co-founder Steve Jobs’ classic attire.
The image was allegedly taken as Kutcher was making his way to the set of an upcoming independently produced biopic aptly named Jobs: Get Inspired.
The flick is not to be confused with Sony’s biopic entitled Steve Jobs: The Movie, based on Walter Isaacson’s authorized bio book.
Here, have a look at Kutcher channeling Jobs and tell us what you think…
According to TMZ, paparazzi-style photos were snapped as Kutcher was making his way to the set in Los Angeles on Friday.
Kutcher can be seen clad in Jobs’ trademark blue jeans, a black turtleneck sweater and New Balance running shoes. He also got long hair and a beard right.
Kutcher’s physique on the photographs does appear to resemble Apple’s late honcho in the early days, down to his forwardly leaned walking posture.
Kutcher appears to be really getting into character, though it’s too early to tell until we see some footage. Besides, Jobs was a complicated man so it’ll be interesting seeing whether Kutcher, 34, has the mojo to channel Jobs, but in a believable and dignified manner.
As you know, Ashton Kutcher is best known for his comedic roles. That’s why some folks fear he is a bad choice to portray a very important person like Steve Jobs.
The actor is also an investor in various Silicon Valley startups.
Jon Cryer will apparently play Steve Wozniak in Jobs: Get Inspired. The movie will cover the early years of the Apple founder’s life from 1971 until 2000.
Principal photography began in May and the project is said to wrap up in time for a fourth-quarter release.
Regardless of your feelings about Kutcher, would you say he looks the spitting image of a young Steve Jobs?
Is this movie gonna tank?
