Dude, where's my Apple?

Ain't no April Fool's here.
The news broke yesterday. Ashton Kutcher is to play Steve Jobs in an upcoming indie cinema masterpiece called just 'Jobs', which will be a biography of an iPod inventor. Yep, Kutcher, the one known from shitloads of stupid comedies and the 'wittiest' show ever 'Punk'd'.

DERP
Not that I'm a fan of Steve Jobs, he, as usual in this business, wasn't a saint, and not such a genius as he was portrayed to be, as the succes of iTunes/iPods/other iThings is mostly a matter of tons of money spent on an advertisment, but this casting seems to be controversial.


I doubt that Ashton will handle the task, judging by his previous filmography. I admit, there is some ressemblance (look down). But is it enough? Best wishes to the makers, but it probably won't repeat a success of the loudest biographical film in previous years, 'Social Network'.

  2. Yeah there is a resemblence, but I highly doubt Kutcher will do a good job too, don't like many of his movies anyway.

  4. Man, Hollywood is really running out of ideas now aren't they?

    I'm sure the overly zealous mactards will surely look past the shitty actor and more into the life of their "God-King" Steve.

  10. I'm neither a fan of Jobs nor of Kutcher, so I'll just ignore this movie.

  13. Well, they do look alike... I remember I liked Ashton back in the day when I thought that MTV was cool.. But this film does not seem as an easy task, I wonder if he will cope with it.
