Nina Simone & Marvin Gaye Biopics Take Notes: First Photos Of Ashton Kutcher As Steve Jobs Drop…And They’re Twins

December 4, 2012  |  

Can’t say how I feel 100 percent about Ashton Kutcher these days, especially after the whole ugly split between him and Demi Moore and the fact that “Two And A Half Men” is just NOT funny, but I can say that I’m starting to get VERY excited about his starring role in this Steve Jobs biopic. And it will be refreshing to see since I don’t think anyone has watched Kutcher play a serious role since…maybe Butterfly Effect!? Why? To get people excited and the ball rolling on promotion, stills from the movie just dropped with Kutcher dressed like Jobs circa the early ’80s and I must say, these two men look eerily similar.

The photos were put out to also alert people that the movie, jOBS, will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this January, closing out the very popular annual event. According to the Guardian UK, the movie will cover about three decades of the entrepreneur and tech king’s life, and it definitely sounds captivating, just check out the movie description that was put on the Sundance press release. “The true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history, jOBS chronicles the defining 30 years of Steve Jobs’ life. jOBS is a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently.” And if that’s not enough for you, get excited because the movie also stars Dermot Mulroney,  Matthew Modine and more. Don’t know who those people are? It’s okay, I’m not too sure either, but that’s what they made Google for! Anyway, now that you see the stills, are you excited for the biopic? Do you think Kutcher and Jobs look very similar or is this a miss?

    They do look a lot alike. Did someone get a DNA test? I’m not a fan of Kutcher’s work though, i hope he’s good in the movie.

  • silkynaps

    whatever. all white people look alike.

  • Idris Elba should have played Steve Jobs. Or Jet Li.

    • Kaori

      Are you being serious? Jet Li is Chinese and Idris Elba is a Black British. Steve Jobs was neither of those.

      • Cleo

        Just like Nina Simone was not Hispanic or Marvin Gaye was biracial, she was joking calm down.

        • Kaori

          Why are you telling me to calm down? I was never hyped up.

      • AfricanBambi

        it’s just a joke.

      • Bwahaha! You took my comment seriously!

        • Kaori

          You are aware that tone cannot be heard through the internet?

          • Not heard, but assumed, which is why this thread has become a bit of a cluster. Oh well!

    I didn’t think Angela Basset looked a thing like Tina Turner and Diana Ross as Billie Holiday was a WTF for casting.

  • Say What?

    They look so alike…too bad he can’t act worth a damn though…

    • rita

      I agree! It’s not all about looks. The point is to get an actor who looks similar enough, but who is also talented and able to handle the role like Angela Bassett as Tina Turner or Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe. Being a ringer for the role can help a lot though, like Foxx as Ray Charles, maybe that will help Kutcher here as well.

    • They do look eerily alike but like the writer said, Idk how Ashton can act in a serious role, but this casting was proper. Take notes people, all Ashton had to do was grow some damn hair


    Speechless!!! Resemblance is uncanny!!!
