Kutcher will take on the role of Jobs in the new film
The first official photo of
Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs
has been released on the Web ahead of the premiere of the new movie based on the Apple leader's life.
Back in April of this year, it was announced that Kutcher would play the role of Jobs in a new indie movie called "jOBS." The movie is directed by Joshua Michael Stern, who is best known for directing Disney's 2008 comedy "Swing Vote." The script for "jOBS" was written by Matt Whiteley.
Now, the first official photo of Kutcher acting as Jobs has made its way around the Web, and many are weighing in on whether he resembles the late Apple CEO or not.
The photo shows Kutcher dressed in classic "young" Jobs attire -- a button-up shirt and jeans. He has a similar hairstyle with the goatee and a watch that resembles Jobs' style as well. The background shows the IBM poster "THINK" and an old Apple Monitor II.
This photo is meant to closely replicate an old
photo of Jobs
, where he's sitting on a wood table in similar clothing with the same items in the background.
Jobs passed away October 5, 2011 after stepping down as Apple CEO only two months earlier. He died due to complications involving pancreatic cancer. Tim Cook took over as Apple's CEO.
What do you think? Does Kutcher look like Jobs? Feel free to share in the comments.

I actually think it may be an interesting movie, if accurate. Guy was a real lunatic and hippie. Would make for a pretty entertaining film.

Speaking of accuracy, I supposed the whole illegitimate child thing will not surface in the film. Nor his angry and tyrannous "thermonuclear" mood-swings.
I estimate it will be accurate as far as remembering him like a hero or success story. In that case, I'll pass. But I might prefer the real story including the ugly truths, like that Johnny Cash movie.
Actually I think Steve-O would make a better Diznee animation toon: turtleneck, jeans, and a temper like Yosemite Sam. (And imagine the Bill & Woz caricatures while we're at it.)
