Ashton Kutcher becomes his look-a-like Steve Jobs in the upcoming Open Road Film indie jOBS, and stars alongside 1600 Penn actor Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak.

jOBS debuts Friday at the closing night of the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Directed by Joshua MIcheal Stern and written by Matthew Whitley, the biopic follows Jobs from his college dropout days brainstorming with Wozniak in 1971 up through 2000. During this time he founded Apple Computer, was ousted from the company, founded Next and Pixar, and eventually returned to work at Apple in 1996.

Kutcher reportedly took time off from all of his other projects in order to delve into the role of Jobs. "He is already meeting with folks that knew Steve Jobs," producer Mark Hulme told The Daily last April. " He’s working with professionals to get inside the voice. He’s letting his hair grow out. I understand he’s canceled all meetings and actually canceled all other projects. He believes the role was meant for him.”

Playing alongside Kutcher, Gad shared some insights on how the known funnyman pulls off this more serious role. "I think that there is a lot of mystery and there’s a lot of pre-loaded expectation based on Ashton’s body of work of what his version of Jobs will be like," he told Entertainment Weekly. "Ashton is nothing short of extraordinary and transformational in this movie." As far as type casting is concerned he said, "Hollywood is the kind of place that takes what you do well in one thing and manufactures it so the joy can be taken out of it." He believes both he and Kutcher have risen above the expectations set for them.

Also starring in the film are Dermot Mulroney, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine. jOBS is set to be released on April 19, Apple's 37th anniversary.
