Snapped On Set: Ashton Kutcher Continues Filming ‘Jobs’ (PHOTOS)
Channeling the late Apple founder, Kutcher, 34, was spotted hanging around the set of Jobs in Van Nuys, Calif., on Friday. Sporting a scruffy beard and long hair, the Two and a Half Men actor looked almost identical the technology mogul back in his young adult days.
According to a production insider, Kutcher has been taking his new role very seriously.
“He is already meeting with folks that knew Steve Jobs. He’s working with professionals to get inside the voice. He’s letting his hair grow out. I understand he’s canceled all meetings and actually canceled all other projects,” producer Mark Hulme told Flash [via The Daily], adding, “He believes the role was meant for him.”
“The physical resemblance is actually scary … but he himself connects with this man in a very significant way. Of course he’s a big techie. He has a personal affinity to what Steve Jobs accomplished,” Hulme said of Kutcher.
Jobs himself passes away last October following a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 56.
This biopic also stars Ahna O’Reily (The Help), who will play Jobs’ first girlfriend, and Josh Gad (Love and Other Drugs; Broadway’s The Book of Mormon) as Steve Wozniak.
Jobs is Kutcher’s first high-profile film since his wife of six years, Demi Moore, filed for divorce after rumors surfaced that Kutcher had cheated on her with multiple women.
