Following yesterday’s news that the independent film JOBS starring Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs will open in theaters on April 19, ETonline.com has released the first video clip from the film. The brief clip shows Kutcher as Jobs speaking with Josh Gad in the role of Steve Wozniak.

In the clip, Jobs (played by Ashton Kutcher) is raving about the operating system that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak (played by Josh Gad) created. While Jobs is certain that this will become a ubiquitous product for mass consumption, Wozniak needs convincing.

“Nobody wants to buy a computer,” says Wozniak.

“How does somebody know what they want if they’ve never even seen it?” Jobs replies.

In related news, management appears to have made a change to the styling of the film’s title, as there had been a fair amount of confusion and criticism over the original “jOBS” styling, an homage to the “i” naming scheme for Apple’s products.

But it appears that in recent weeks various official presences for the film such as a revamped teaser site, Twitter account, and Facebook page have adopted a new all-caps styling for JOBS, with the “J” appearing slightly larger than the other capitalized letters in the film’s new promotional logo.

JOBS premieres tomorrow at the Sundance Film Festival ahead of the public release on April 19.

(Thanks, Joel!)

Looks and sounds like Ashton Kutcher in the role of Ashton Kutcher.
So thats what Hurley from LOST is doing now he got off the island
Meh, seemed kind of amateur.
.
I’m nauseous after watching that. :(

:apple:

This is an easy pass…
Kutcher from that clip seems believable, good. But Woz, wow, thats all I’ve got really. That was…..shockingly amateurish acting:(

I’m Pumped.

That’s what she said.

Since this is more of a documentary I would pay more attention to the message rather than the acting skills, especially in this very small clip.

Noah Wyle > Ashton Kutcher

Noah BECAME Jobs. He did such an incredible job in that role; I just cant see Kutcher coming close to that.

Would have been better off going with some no name guy to take on the roll. Would have felt more authentic. Kutcher is doing okay, and I’ll see the movie, but he’s got too much of his own presence based on previous stuff to convince Apple people that they’re watching Steve Jobs on screen. :apple:
