Coming Soon: Jobs

Could this be the “job” that finally breaks Ashton Kutcher away from his romantic comedy stereotype?

Film Synopsis: The story of Steve Jobs’ rise from college dropout into one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century.

Directed by Joshua Michael Stern and Written by Matt Whiteley

Stars: Ashton Kutcher, Josh Gad, Dermot Mulroney, James Woods, J.K. Simmons and Amanda Crew

 

First Impressions: Based on this trailer alone, it looks like we’ll get to see a whole new side to the guy from That 70’s Show. We did get a glimpse of a more serious side to him in ​Butterfly  Effect ​ and The Guardian.  But that didn’t last too long, and he quickly reverted back to the genre he felt the most comfortable.  I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy What Happens in Vegas and No Strings Attached.  I just knew he was capable of more versatility.  This is what he seems to be showing in the first trailer of the anticipated Steve Jobs bio pic, Jobs.

If the film’s release date was closer to Oscar season, I would even say he has a big shot for that Best Actor nomination.  Oscar history has shown that actors who play real-life roles, only up their chances at taking home that golden statue.  In the past ten years alone, six of the Best Actor winners were from portrayals of real people.  Including Jamie Foxx as Ray Charles(2005), Sean Penn as Harvey Milk(2009), and of course most recently Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln(2013).  But all those actors gave strong performances that earned them a much deserved win.  So we will just have to wait and see how compelling of a performance Ashton Kutcher gives when the movie is released August 16, 2013.  For now, you be the judge…
