'Jobs' (stylized 'jObs' in classic Apple style) is the story of the late Apple Inc. founder and his transformation from a college drop-out into one of the richest and most influential technology entrepreneurs of our time. The visionary iPhone creator passed away on October 5th 2011 after a respiratory arrest following an eight year battle with pancreatic cancer. Kutcher will star as the pioneer after a prolific career in comedy, most recently when he replaced Charlie Sheen on the hit TV show 'Two and a Half Men'. The Sundance festival's director John Cooper explains that actors often appear in roles unusual for them at the festival. 'A lot of these actors are looking to spread out of their comfort zones', he said. 'It's about doing something different for them.'
We are sure that Kutcher's transition from comedy flicks to true story dramas will be a smooth one; after all, he certainly looks the part as the first official photo released showing the actor with long floppy hair and facial hair bears remarkable similarities to the black and white photos of Jobs in the early years of his Apple career.
