Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs in jOBS is "Uncanny"

Aston Kutcher has been dismissed before as a one-trick pony, a handsome guy who plays pranks on people for money. It's not a bad place to be, when you put things in perspective, but he's been trying to step out of that mould, and if his performance in jOBS is anything to go by, he should be taken seriously as a 'proper' actor. 

"If this story is going to get told, I want to get it told in a way that honors my hero," Kutcher told the audience at the Macworld trade show about reading the screenplay.  Actor Josh Gad stars in the film alongside Kutcher as Jobs' partner Steve Wozniak. "Ashton is going to blow a lot of people away. His performance was absolutely transformational," Gad told Us Weekly last November. "If he looked any more like Steve Jobs, I think it would just confuse a lot of people in thinking Steve Jobs never passed away. It's that uncanny."

The journey wasn't easy for Kutcher though, and his Jobs-like fruitarian diet landed him in trouble. "I ended up in the hospital two days before we started shooting the movie," Kutcher told the Associated Press. "I was like doubled over in pain, and my pancreas levels were completely out of whack, which was completely terrifying, considering everything."
