We've all been wondering what it's going to be like to see Ashton Kutcher play Steve Jobs. Well, here's our first look at him in the role, along with Josh Gad as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. In the clip Jobs is trying to convince Wozniak that he thinks people would be interested in buying a personal computer. My first impression of the clip reminds me of a made for TV movie.
I will be seeing the film tomorrow at Sundance, we'll let you know how good or bad it is after we see it. In the meantime, here's the clip!
The movie was directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote) and also stars Ahna O’Reilly as Jobs’ girlfriend Chris-Ann Brennan; Lukas Haas as Apple employee DanielKottke; Dermot Mulroney as former Apple CEO Mike Markkula; and Matthew Modine as former Apple CEO John Sculley. It will be released in April of 2013. Here's the synopsis...
The film covers Jobs from his early years as an impressionable youth and wayward hippie, through his initial successes and infamous ousting, to his storybook return and ultimate triumphs as a man who set out to change the world and did just that.
