Footage of Ashton Kutcher as Jobs from "jOBS" Biopic Emerges
The first footage of the “jOBS” biopic hit the web, giving viewers a peek of actors Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad as Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. The clip, originally obtained by ETonline, shows Jobs (Kutcher) excitedly attempting to convey to Wozniak (Gad) how important his developed operating system is.
In the clip, Woz remains unconvinced, thinking that nobody would want to buy the computer but Jobs remains the visionary, asking Wozniak “How does somebody know what they want if they’ve never seen it?” Overall, the clip looks promising and conveys the two cofounders and their personalities very well. The video can be seen below:
The full film will hit theaters on April 19, coinciding with Apple’s 37th anniversary. It is said to cover 30 years of Jobs’ life, from 1971 to 2000. “jOBS” is one of the two forthcoming films focused on the late Apple cofounder. The other film is a big-budget, Sony-backed picture which is said to be penned by award-winning writer, Aaron Sorkin and based on Walter Isaacson’s official biography. Those of you who are interested in Jobs’ life and Apple’s history have a lot to look forward to.

Great example is Bill Murray playing FDR in his most recent movie. Who would have ever figured that the whacko from Caddy Shack and GhostBusters would ever be able to pull off a dramatic role playing one of the most influential presidents in American history. Well Bill 'reinvented himself' for that role and the result's AMAZING. Kutcher ain't there yet.
It's rare when you can pull of 'your schtick' in every role you play and have each new role be believable - like somehow Robin Williams can. Even when Robin plays straight non comedic roles like in "Dead Poet's Society" (best flick EV-ER!) - you still see the crazy MORK of "MORK and MINDY" coming out a 'bit'. But somehow Robin Williams makes that work. Kutcher doesn't have the gravitas yet. I'll watch this movie for the 'story line' of it - but will look more forward to the other Jobs movie they're working on too.

I think people may have unreaslistic expectations of this movie. First, remember it's a movie with paid actors. It's not a documentary.
As with every movie based on real events and real people, the actors simply will not nail the character perfectly. The only way to do that is have Steve Jobs do it himself. Second, the screen writer and director have to take some creative liberties to make the story interesting. If they stuck strictly to the facts the movie would either be dull and boring, or it would be a documentary.
Enjoy it for what it is, and don't expect it to be the perfect telling of Steve Jobs' life.

I don't claim to know a lot about Steve Jobs book from all of the keynote speeches that I've seen, it seems like Ashton Kutcher nailed the inflections that Mr. Jobs had.
