First Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs pictures leaked

Filming for the much talked about Steve Jobs biopic has begun in Los Angeles, and TMZ has managed to post the first photographs showing actor Ashton Kutcher in full Steve Jobs turtleneck and jeans outfit as he made his way to the set of the independent film earlier this week.

As we exclusively revealed in our recent interview with producer Mark Hulme, the movie, with the working title Jobs: Get Inspired, will focus on Jobs' early life from 1971 to 2000. The movie won't apparently go into detail on Jobs' life after that time period, when Apple launched the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad and became the massive company that it is today.

Joshua Michael Stern, who directed the comedy Swing Vote, is helming this new movie. It's currently expected to be released to theaters in late 2012.

While Kutcher is known mostly for his comedy roles in movies and on TV sitcoms such as That 70s Show and more recently Two and a Half Men, he's also done a few dramatic parts over the years. Of course, Kutcher is a known fan of technology and gadgets and has been an investor in a number of startup tech companies.

a douche playing the role of another douche.....awesome, that's just what our pitiful little planet needed....more **** to convince people that "this is how it really was". Fail. Will not watch, even if it's played in hell's waiting room, and I'm the first person there....I'll gouge my eyes out with my arm-bone, thank you but no thank you.

First he ruined two and a half men and now he is going to try and portray legend Steve Jobs? C'mon, i am so sick of hearing about ashton kutcher! lol

No two and a half men was ruin when the "half" became a man himself... and Rob Lowe

My understanding is, Steve did not start wearing the black turtle neck until the late 80's after visiting Japan to learn about the Sony factory.

I won't be watching it for sure....I mean the whole business of delivering the movie before anyone else does sounds too low standard to me and I don't know if I can expect a quality movie from such people!

Wow, can't believe people are being so whiny about this. I think it's a fairly good match. I'm open to watching it, maybe it'll be ok, maybe it'll be terrible. I'm willing to bet there are going to be much worse movies than this, this year.

will focus on Jobs' early life from 1971 to 2000.

Why that time period again? There's already Pirates of Silicon Valley!

NOT NEWSWORTHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Agreed. What is this... NeoCelebs? Are we soon going to know what kind of breakfast cereal Katy Perry eats every morning? Or what color Ben Affleck's newest car is?

The movie has a working title of "Jobs" but anyone wonder what the final title of the movie will be called? How about:

iNeverGaveACentToCharity
iStoleIdeasFromThePaloAltoResearchCenter
iWasAJunkie
iDestroyedPeoplesLives
iDidNotWorkAtIBM
iAmHatedByAllMyStaff
iDontFlash
iWontSupportBluRay
iLimitYourCustomizationalAbilityAndLockDownTheIDevices
iStillLegallyOwnYourIDevicesEvenThoughYouPaidWAyMoreForThemThatWhatTheyAreWork
iAmworshipedByDumbAndIgnorantPeople

And one more thing...

How about the truth as the title? iWasNotReallyAGenius.

You don't have to be a genius to change the world.
I'm not saying changed it for the better either. It's all in your point of view.

Wrong shoes. Steve Jobs used new balance shoes, not asics. Hope that Ashton Kutcher will run a full marathon using his asics kayano.

THIS. it's the first thing anyone should notice while looking at the picture. Can't believe it took this far into the comments for someone to say it.

Looks to me that all they are doing is re-doing the movie that TNT made back in 1998 called...Pirates of Silicon Valley.

Only difference will be...they will only focus on Jobs's life...not talk about Bill Gates's early life as well.

edit: nevermind, misread the article. Kind of odd that they would focus on essentially the same time period as Pirates. Maybe they are going for more factual accuracy than that movie.

Is there a Steve Ballmer movie coming out? I think there's way more material to work with on Steve Ballmer than there is with Steve Jobs. I mean, at least with Ballmer you can go beyond a boring documentary and into something more action packed.

The actor would need major throat surgery after shooting the "Developers! Developers! Developers!" scene a few times.

He's not in coffin yet

I would like a Bill Gates movie with a scene re-enacting the photoshoot of the 'sexy' Bill Gates pictures

I still dont understand why one of the most innovative and brilliant minds is being played by.... Michael S. Kelso.....

Whoever played him in the Pirates of Silicon valley matched the role a bit better IMO.

Noah Wyle, and you are right

Ashton Kutcher > Charlie Sheen

Indeed. I really can't stand him.

I thought Steve didn't wear that Turtleneck and Jeans till he was older with grey hair? He always wore "normal" clothes when he was younger.

Apparently in the movie, he also wears his turtleneck to sleep. There were fears the audience couldn't identify him without one.

I am not an Apple user but it makes me sad knowing Jobs is no longer with us.

Jobs was a important person that do a lot of stuff but sadly, he also was a big douchebag.

Mohitster said,

Are you kidding me? This early? Sources?

Well, realistically shooting only takes a month or two, and there's no real special effects shots at all (which tend to take the longest) - so all they have to do is edit it together.

Doesn't take long to cast a twit as a douche, and they want to crank this crap out just as fast as they can. People won't care in a few more months.

That's actually pretty good.

Not really. The guy is too old to play the part... and he needs a tan. I know it is popular to reinvent people but come on. The last guy who played the part of Steve Jobs was a little closer.
