In one of the most shocking casting moves of recent memory, Ashton Kutcher was chosen to play original Apple genius Steve Jobs in the simply titled biopic Jobs. This casting news was surprising on two counts. First off, Kutcher is an actor not typically associated with drama. Secondly, with That '70s Show and Dude, Where's My Car? being among his most popular works, this typically comedic performer is often typecast as a doofus. So taking on the role of Jobs, a controversial figure known and loved the world over, is a major risk for the star. Penned by Matt Whiteley, Jobs focuses on the entrepreneur's life between 1971 and 2000. The film directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote) will reveal how Jobs and Steve Wozniak founded Apple. We got a look at that era in a previously released photo. Now, Open Road Films is revealing a critical clip. Viewable below »
