First Look: Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs

The Two and a Half Men star strikes a pose as the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

Sporting a goatee and dressed in a button-down shirt and jeans, the first official photo, released today by the Sundance Film Festival, features Ashton Kutcher bearing an uncanny likeness to the technology icon in the film titled JOBS.

The biopic will be the closing-night film at Sundance, on January 25.

UPDATE: Steve Jobs lost his battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of 56 in October 2011 and as April 2013 marks the 37th anniversary of the founding of the Apple Computer Company, Open Road Films has decided to release JOBS on April 19.

Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, written by Matthew Whitely, shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter and produced by Mark Hulme, JOBS details the major moments and defining characters that influenced Steve Jobs on a daily basis from 1971 through 2001, according to a press release.

For JOBS, which co-stars Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine, authenticity was key, which is why filmmakers shot in the historic garage in Palo Alto, that served as the birthplace to Apple Inc.
