Well, Ashton is a cunt, and so was Steve, so this will work out nicely for both of them.
I only want to see this because the guy who voices Finn on Adventure Time is in it.
He actually does favor the late Steve Jobs to a fair degree.
Isn't there to be another film which is more nerd-centric? I thought I read that somewhere.
Has he ever thought about cutting that mop into something more grown up and stylish?
I tried watching a movie (Valentine's Day) with him in it yesterday and turned it off after 30 minutes. He just doesn't look like a man to me much less a leading man. Of course the whole movie and cast blew chunks.
Lucille Ball was going to go after that role, but Gary talked her out of it.
Same level of narcissism. Smart casting.

Um, R11? He grew his "mop" merely for the role. Before it he had his hair nicely trim and parted, with no bangs.
Makes me think of Lindsay in Liz and Dick. A train wreck of an autobio.

...except it's good enough to have been selected for a Sundance premiere, not a low-budget TV movie for Lifetime.
How doesn't he look like a man, R11?
He really does resemble Jobs closely.
Too bad he can't act.
He looks like a little boy to me R17. It's that ridiculous mop of hair.
Thank you, R19/R11.
Why do they hate Steve Jobs so much?
Steve may have been a horrible human being, but he was a visionary. It's so wrong the he should be played by a hapless moron like Ashton. They've should've picked an unknown actor who could've made Steve his own.
I saw this film at Sundance last week. Ashton was actually great in it. I think the film will do really well. I think Steve Jobs had a Narcissistic Personality Disorder or Borderline. Definitely off.
I saw it yesterday, and it's a lot better than I expected. Ashton is really good as Steve.
There was a screening in SF for a bunch of old Apple people who are portrayed in the movie, and everyone thought Ashton really captured Steve's walk and talk, and intensity.
Ashton showed up at the screening. He was at MacWorld earlier in the day. He was humble and gracious, and happy to talk to everyone.
