With the right makeup and hair, Ashton Kutcher can look a lot like Steve Jobs — and he wants to make sure you don’t forget it.
His new biopic about the Apple co-founder, “jOBS,” recently made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival and will hit theaters on April 19. Lest you forget that a big draw of the movie is seeing Kutcher take on the Jobs role, the actor has uploaded a split screen image of himself as the late tech guru to ram the point home.
Does it work? Yes, but a picture can only go so far. Kutcher can look like Jobs all he wants, but if he doesn’t act like him too, then the film won’t work. Fortunately the first clip from the movie shows that he does a pretty convincing job with that too.
Kutcher also gets a stamp of approval from his “jOBS” costar Josh Gad. MTV News caught up with Gad at the Toronto International Film Festival back in September, and he spent a good portion of the interview singing Kutcher’s praises.
“We wrapped production on ’jOBS,’ and I think it’s going to be a really great film,” he said. “I think people are going to be blown away by Ashton Kutcher. He has completely immersed himself in this role. It’s kind of frightening how amazing the similarities are.”
