When we first heard about Ashton Kutcher portraying Steve Jobs in a biopic, we assumed it had to be a joke. But then the producer of JOBS: Get Inspired — which is the working title of this atrocity — Mark Hulme gave an interview in which he said:
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. [Neowin]
Beyond first-time-producer Mark Hulme’s interview, we had little reason to believe this could possibly move forward, but now 34-year-old Ashton Kutcher has been spotted in costume while walking to the set of the apparently-in-production-are-you-freaking-kidding-me movie.
So let’s go ahead and state the obvious. When Steve Jobs had a beard, he was much younger than Ashton Kutcher is now. And he didn’t start wearing the jeans and black turtleneck until decades later. And he wore a different style of New Balance shoes; they’re not that difficult to find. Also, Ashton Kutcher sucks.
Here are some more pictures if you need them for some reason like, I don’t know, dartboards or bird cage liners.
“That guy sucks.”
