Ashton Kutcher explores the glamour and glitches of Steve Jobs
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Ashton Kutcher may be best known for his goofier comedy roles in That '70s Show and Two and a Half Men, but the actor takes a rare dramatic turn in new film Jobs as visionary Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
Kutcher, 35, who bears a strong physical resemblance to a young Jobs with his wavy dark hair, brown eyes and five o'clock shadow, said as a fan of Jobs' work, he was surprised when learning details about the Apple CEO's life.
"When I read the script, Steve was a guy that I really admired, and he was not always being shown in the best light, and I was a little taken aback. I really admire who he is and what he's done. I want to in some ways protect the legacy of a guy that I admire," Kutcher said.
"I also had the challenge of playing a guy who very much is still in the zeitgeist ... I had to play the guy that became the guy that everybody remembers," he added.
