Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs looks like Ashton Kutcher

Will he make a fortune from this movie?

When it was first rumored that Ashton Kutcher would be playing the younger Steve Jobs in a movie, some were moved to joy and others to wailing.

But if you really want to know what’s going on in Hollywood, who are you going to call? Setbusters, that’s who. These are the intrepid men and women who can point a camera in the tightest of spots and sell the results to TMZ.

Sure enough, TMZ has real images from near the set of a movie which is now said to be called “Jobs: Be Inspired.”

More Technically Incorrect

To some, that might sound like a political rallying call for the coming election. One can imagine, too, that there might still be several iterations of a title to a movie that is to cover the Apple co-founder’s early years.

Sadly “Diff’rent Strokes” has already been taken.

I cannot help but look at these pictures and see, well, Ashton Kutcher. Yes, there’s the black turtleneck and bright blue baggy jeans. I struggle to see Steve Jobs.

But there’s more to playing Jobs than the garb. There’s the slightly nasal voice, for example. But, most important are surely the eyes. Can Kutcher convince us to forget not merely that this isn’t Steve Jobs but also that this is Ashton Kutcher?

If he does, you just know there’s an Oscar waiting, don’t you?
