ASHTON KUTCHER‘s portrayal of the late Apple co-founder STEVE JOBS in a new biopic is “uncanny,” according to his co-star, JOSH GAD.
A little over a year after Steve Jobs passed away due to pancreatic cancer, the production of his much-awaited biopic about his rise to fame and success as a young Apple visionary is in full motion with Ashton Kutcher portraying him.
Gad gushed about his co-star to Us Weekly at last week’s BAFTA Britannia Awards in Los Angeles:
“I think it’s going to be pretty wonderful. Ashton is going to blow a lot of people away. His performance was absolutely transformational. 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.”
Other than looking like every bit the tech entrepreneur in his earlier days in a sweater vest, jeans, sneakers, and round glasses, Kutcher‘s acting was equally impressive.
“He really immersed himself. I think he has an appreciation for Steve Jobs, the likes of which I’ve never seen in any actor who’s portrayed a real, living person.”
“Ashton is one of the most giving actors I’ve ever worked with. I was surprised by his work every day.”

Do you think Ashton really makes a perfect “Jobs“?
