    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.

    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!

    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.

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

    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!

    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!

    Christian Bale is my choice Says:

    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.
