Ashton Kutcher spotted in Steve Jobs drab for biopic

Posted by Mark Raby

It seems the reports about Ashton Kutcher portraying Steve Jobs in the biographical film of the Apple co-founders life are true.

Celebrity stalking website TMZ.com managed to grab some pictures of Kutcher wearing the trademark black turtleneck and blue jeans that Jobs became famous for wearing.

When Kutcher was announced for the role, it drew a largely positive reaction.

Jobs was known for being a rather outgoing and larger-than-life kind of person, at least during his early days, and Kutcher's ability to capture that kind of persona has been proven multiple times.

There is a lot of anticipation for the movie, which if done right could be even more successful than the wildly popular bestselling Steve Jobs biography that was released right around the time of the visionary's death.

Jobs was one of the rare executives who was more powerful than the company he led, so casting someone to play him is as tough a process as any director could imagine.

Producer David Hulme was quoted earlier this year as saying, "Since our film covers the early years of Apple, when Jobs was in his 20's, we needed an actor who could carry not only the youthfulness of Jobs at the time but also the psychological complexity. Because of that, and Ashton's physical similarities to Jobs, he's perfect for our film."
