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

# 2

this is another april’s fools joke, right?

# 3

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

# 4

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.

# 6

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!

# 7

Such a shame…

# 8

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

Ugh….just, ugh.

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

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.

For the love of God, please. NO.

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!

have all the actors died? @ 04/01/2012 at 7:09 pm

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

Wow, Good for him!

Stupidest thing I’ve ever heard.

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

Too soon, and Ashton is the worst actor ever

would he just disappear already?

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!

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

Christian Bale is my choice @ 04/03/2012 at 11:32 am

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.
