First Look: Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs in ‘Jobs’ Biopic
It’s actually happening: Ashton Kutcher is playing Steve Jobs. Look! Pictures!
Just in case anyone was still holding out hope that maybe this whole Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs thing wasn’t actually happening, I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news for you: It is. And we have photographic evidence.
These pics come to you via TMZ, who spotted the former That ‘70s Show star on his way to the set of the indie biopic Jobs this past Friday. Let’s take a little bit of a closer look at him and his Starbucks cup:
Aaaand closer still:
And just for kicks, here’s an image People put together comparing the two gentlemen:
Well, they… certainly have the same wardrobe. According to TMZ, Ashton is wearing a black turtleneck, jeans, and New Balance sneakers: Steve’s signature look. His hair looks a little better groomed than Steve’s did when he was that age:
Other than that, though, it’s a pretty decent lookalike.
But does anyone else remain unconvinced that Ashton has the acting chops to pull the whole thing off? Because try as I might, I just can’t quite get there—especially after that disastrous and remarkably stupid PopChips incident. Am I alone here?
Who knows; I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see. Maybe he’ll surprise us all and burst out of the woodwork with a stunning performance. Jobs is due out sometime in 2013.
I still wouldn’t date him, though.
