    terrible choice. he cannot act and he looks nothing like him

  • dee

    this is another april’s fools joke, right?

    it takes a douche to play douche…casting is spot on

  • Sarah

    I think someone like Adam Scott would have been a better choice. Ashton is decent in comedies, but I don’t know if he can pull off a role like this.

  • Mel

    Booooooooo

    Let the man (Steve Jobs) Rest In Peace for awhile before you make a movie about him, just to make some money. Show some respect!

  • kizbit

    Such a shame…

  • Brittany

    Why would they get someone like him to represent someone who did such miraculous work?..

  • Gossipgirl

    Ugh….just, ugh.

  • Sayer

    I noticed the resemble when they showed pics of Jobs’ younger years.

  • Dave Howard

    Miraculous work? Perhaps you should do a little research on the man. The only thing he was good at was turning someone elses hard work in to profit for himself.

  • Christina

    For the love of God, please. NO.

  • commonsense

    Only one explanation for this inexplicable choice: he must be the producer.

  • original miley

    steve jobs looks like ashton when he was younger, when steve died, the first thought i have was, if theres going to be a movie about him, ashton should play him!

  • have all the actors died?

    mother effing choice. i’m not a fan of steve jobs but i effing hate this kutcher-prick more.

  • hmm

    Wow, Good for him!

  • HA

    Stupidest thing I’ve ever heard.

  • sweetness

    and no one will go see this movie, so why make it?

  • laly

    Too soon, and Ashton is the worst actor ever

  • k

    would he just disappear already?

  • dan

    poor steve

  • lolo

    At First I said they are not serious for this choice, but when I saw this photo:

    I changed my mind. Ashton Kutcher incredibly looks like Steve Jobs. Check the eyes. Specially the nose. He can take the role. Just be hopeful!

  • R

    I don’t know why this makes me so sad…

  • Christian Bale is my choice

    How did this happen? Christian Bale is gorgeous like Steve Jobs and he is the absolute best actor to give honor to a guy that made the lives of so many people better. Steve gave the public control over their own destiny.
