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.

Agreed. Type-casting at its finest.
It won't be a real biographical movie unless it portrays the "Beloved Leader" in all his douchy glory. I anticipate this movie will have to be offered in 3-D only...since the visual effects of said movies make it much easier to replicate "reality distortion".
I also want to see monologues about how "Beloved Leader" explains that prior art doesn't exist. Ever.
