When it was revealed that a movie was going to be made about the life of Steve Jobs, there were quite a few top Hollywood names linked to the lead role. So, it was quite a surprise when Ashton Kutcher was cast as Steve Jobs, since he is not exactly the most accomplished actor around. Now, two new pictures for jOBS have been released, showing Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs.
The synopsis for jOBS is as follows:
The true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history, jOBS chronicles the defining 30 years of Steve Jobs’ life. The story of Steve Jobs' ascension from college dropout into one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century jOBS is a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently.
As well as starring Ashton Kutcher, jOBS also stars Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine. jOBS is directed by Joshua Michael Stern, based on a script by Matt Whiteley and is set to feature at the Sundance Film Festival later this month.
