I have to admit, ever since I first heard Ashton Kutcher was playing the role of Steve Jobs in a movie, I wasn’t best pleased. One of my least favorite on-screen performers normally seen playing doofuses/doofii? in movies like Dude, Where’s my Car haven’t exactly inspired confidence in his acting quality or versatility. (Yes, I am a movie snob. No, I’m not sorry.)
However, from seeing the official images throughout shooting of the ‘Jobs’ movie, I’ve been pleased at just how much he looks like a younger version of Apple’s late, great founder. But, can he act the part? We get our first glimpse at his performance in the trailer below:
I’ve got to say, I’m very impressed. I can’t wait to see it in full. And, since it won’t be available in my local theater, I’m probably gonna have to find another (legal) means to watch it.
What do you make of the first glimpse? Is it better looking than you expected?
