Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs: First photos of actor portraying late Apple CEO
Two and Half Men actor and the former Mr Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher has been photographed making his way to the set of his new film about the late Steve Jobs.
Not without controversy, both in terms of the subject matter as well as the casting of Kutcher, there’s no denying the 34-year-old actor bore more than a passing resemblance for the former Apple CEO, complete with black turtle neck jumper and trademark beard.
Filming has only just begun in Los Angeles and is currently going under the working title of “Jobs: Get inspired.” The biopic is said to focus on Jobs’s “hippie years” in the lead up to his forming Apple. It’s pencilled in for a 2013 arrival.
Kutcher’s portrayal of Steve Jobs is not the only film in the pipeline with Sony Pictures also working on a movie based on Walter Isaacson’s biography.
In 1999 a film entitled Pirates of Silicon Valley”was also released, though of course back then the world had never heard of an iPod, let alone an iPhone or iPad.
