He may be gone but thanks to the legacy he left behind, certain indie film and Hollywood movie production studios will never lets us forget the iconic Apple founder, Steve Jobs. We will all continue to enjoy the amazing products and services which Jobs managed to unleash to the world during his final years with Apple, but if Ashton Kutcher has anything to do with it, we could be remembering the former Apple CEO for different reasons.
The current star of the hit TV sitcom Two and a Half Men has been casted by a small movie production studio to step into the shoes of Steven Paul Jobs in the soon to be released jOBS movie. Over the last couple of months we have seen various image sets emerge that show Kutcher throwing himself into the role in an attempt to give the best performance possible, with each set seemingly portraying a different stage in Jobs personal life and career.
The latest set of images to do the rounds from the movie set shed light on a different aspect of the movie and definitely highlight a time in the Apple founder’s life when he was enjoying the carefree era that was the 1970s. Speaking from a personal point of view, I didn’t exist in the 70s to be able to comment on the decade, or indeed what was deemed acceptable and what wasn’t. However, with that in mind, the set photographs clearly show Kutcher having the time of his life in his euphoric state.
Although jOBS isn’t an officially sanctioned movie, it is one that a lot of Steve Jobs and Apple fans are looking forward to watching in an attempt to try and gain a little insight into the life of someone who so many of us consider an inspiration as a man and a business person. With that said, the image of Steve Jobs which a lot of us have from his keynote presentations and media events is somewhat different to the one which Kutcher is portraying in the shown pictures, clearly partaking in some of the more questionable experiences that were widely available during that era. When alive, Steve Jobs never made any secret of his younger days and claims it was a period from which he gained invaluable life experience. I for one can’t wait to see the scenes in the movie when it finally hits the shelves, or theaters, whichever comes first.
