The above sneak peek photo shows the That 70′s Show actor looking like a spitting image of Steve dressed in one of his common outfits from the 1980s, with the full beard and parted hair to match!
The jOBS biopic is set to debut during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah in January, where it will be headlining.
Trevor Groth, the festival’s director of programming, recently told USA Today of the film:
“We’re really excited to have it as the closing night. It’s really an inspirational and entertaining film about a man who has had such a significant impact on the world.”
He also said of Ashton playing Steve Jobs:
“My hunch is he got the job because he bears such a striking resemblance to Jobs physically,” Groth says. “But (Kutcher) really owns the performance.”
This is a really big move for Ashton and we can’t wait to see how it pans out!
