Ashton Kutcher releases Steve Jobs comparison image

Ashton Kutcher celebrated the release of jOBS at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival by unveiling an image comparing himself in-character with the real Steve Jobs.

In fairness to the Two And A Half Men star, the resemblance is rather uncanny. From the first official image of Kutcher as Jobs , it was evident that the physical likeness wouldn’t be a problem.

When TF was in Sundance, we thought Kutcher nailed the Apple-man’s mannerisms and gestures, but we were less convinced by his dramatic chops.

Conveniently, a video of a young Jobs explaining how he founded Apple has gone viral on reddit , with one user suggesting that it explains the seemingly bizarre casting decision.

Give it a watch and tell us what you think:

jOBS opens in the US on 19 April 2013, with a UK release date yet to be confirmed.
