‘jOBS’ Pics: See Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs and Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak
One of the biggest films to premiere at Sundance in the coming week is ‘jOBS,’ the biopic about the late Apple founder Steve Jobs, and we’ve got a peek at stars Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad in the lead roles of Jobs and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, respectively.
It sure is striking how much Ashton Kutcher looks like late Apple founder and visionary Steve Jobs, but let’s not overlook how much ‘The Book of Mormon‘ and ‘1600 Penn‘ star Josh Gad resembles Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
In a piece over at USA Today, Gad says of his ‘jOBS’ co-star, “When he showed up, it sent a ripple of shock throughout the set. Everyone was like, ‘We’re in the presence of Jobs. Let’s go do this.’ It was literally like being in the room with the creator of Apple. This is one of those roles that’s the perfect fit.”
‘jOBS’ follows Jobs and Wozniak from their early days putting together computers in their garage to the launch of the first iPod in 2001 (does that make you feel old? It should). The film also stars Dermot Mulroney, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine, and is scheduled for a theatrical release through Open Road Films this spring, though an official date has not yet been set.
