TMZ states that Steve Wozniak finds the young actor quite good for the role, “being glad that he’s on board”:
“The fear that many might have is that Ashton was selected because he’s ‘hot’ right now. But I feel that his selection was done in the most professional manner. And I’m glad that he’s onboard. I think he’ll put a lot into it and that he cares about this particular subject.”
We stated in a previous article that Ashton Kutcher is going to play the role of Apple’s co-founder and it seems that he does not waste time at all, rumours wondering around that he is meeting friends that used to know Steve Jobs and even letting his hair grow.
Even the producer Mark Hulme believes that he is the right guy for the movie:
“When he read the script, he loved it. He and the director (Joshua Michael Stern) met two days later and they could tell that this was the right direction…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”. “Ashton is a much more intense individual than a lot of his current roles represent. We are feeling convinced that he’s gonna nail this.”
