A lot of people groaned and complained when Ashton Kutcher was cast as Steve Jobs, including me. Yeah, he looked the part, but could he really pull off the acting aspect of it? Surprisingly, he did really well, but unfortunately, the movie itself just wasn’t that good. It played out like a decent made for TV movie, but not the caliber of HBO. It was more in the range of a network like Lifetime.
We’ve got a new behind the scenes featurette for the film, along with a couple of clips.
[box] We follow Steve Jobs from the enthusiasm and self-discovery of his youth through his darkest days, brightest triumphs, and the ultimate power of his drive, his passions, and his undying will to change everything we thought possible. Dark, honest, and uncompromising, “Jobs” plunges into the depths of Steve Jobs’ character, uncovering his driving motivations, his gifts, his flaws, his failures, and his ultimate successes.[/box]
