As previously reported, Ashton Kutcher will play Steve Jobs in an upcoming biopic about the late Apple founder, and the first image from the film has hit the web.
Check out Ashton as vintage Jobs, circa 1983:
The film, jOBS (not a typo, that’s how the movie title is stylized), will premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, which released the above image yesterday.
Outfitted in a button-down shirt, jeans, and a goatee, the Two and a Half Men star leans against a desk in front of an IBM poster with the slogan THINK.
Physically at least, he bears an uncanny resemblance to Jobs. Not convinced? Follow the jump and see the actual Steve Jobs photo upon which this is based:
Sundance describes the Jobs biopic as the “true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history,” which “chronicles the defining 30 years of Steve Jobs’ Life.”
jOBS also stars Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J. K. Simmons, and Matthew Modine. It will close out the January 17-27 event in Park City, Utah.
