TMZ, the celebrity site, has just released a series of stunning photos of actor Ashton Kutcher in the outfit of recent Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. The pictures were allegedly taken while Kutcher was on his way to the set of an independent biography film simply titled Jobs: Get Inspired.
Do not confuse this project with Sony's biography "Steve Jobs: The Movie", based on author Walter Isaacson's authorized biopic.
So take a look at Kutcher portraying Jobs and tell me what you think?
According to TMZ, the paparazzi-style photos were taken as Kutcher walked to the set in Los Angeles on Friday.
Kutcher can be seen wearing Jobs' signature blue jeans, a black turtleneck and New Balance trainers. He also has long hair and a beard.
With his physique in the photographs, Kutcher reproduces the recent Apple CEO in his early years, right down to his lean posture and energetic gait.
It seems like Kutcher really got into the role, although it's too early to talk about it, before watching the footage. Regardless, Jobs was a difficult person, and it will be very interesting to see if 34-year-old Kutcher has enough mantra to convey Jobs in a believable and dignified manner.
As you know, Ashton Kutcher is well known for his comedic roles. This is why some lament that he was the wrong choice for such an important person as Steve Jobs.
The actor is also an investor in a variety of Silicon Valley startups.
John Cryer will likely play Steve Wozniak in Jobs: Get Inspired. The film will cover the early years of the Apple founder, from 1971 to 2000.
The main shooting began in May, and the project itself is planned to be completed by the fourth quarter, when the film will be released.
Aside from your attitude towards Kutcher, don't you think he looks like a spitting image of young Steve Jobs?
Will this film be a breakthrough? We are waiting for your comments.
