Fans know funny guys Ashton Kutcher from That ’70s Show and Two and a Half Men, and Josh Gad from Broadway’s Book of Mormon and TV’s 1600 Penn, but they come together as a rolled up ball of friendship and genius-level nerd-tech intelligence as Apple co-founders Steve Jobs (Kutcher) and Steve Wozniak (Gad) – aka Woz — in jOBS, premiering Friday at the Sundance Film Festival. The movie hits theaters April 19.
Check out this exclusive clip from the movie of Kutcher — all bright-eyed, bearded, and enthusiastic as Jobs — heatedly discussing with Gad’s Woz — less bright-eyed, and more puffy haired — in the parking lot of Hewlett Packard a new real-time computer operating system Woz created. “This is freedom! This is freedom to create, and to do and to build, as artists, as individuals,” exclaims Kutcher in the clip. “Look! You’re over-reacting! Even if you were developing this for freaks like us, and I doubt you are, nobody wants to buy a computer, nobody!” Gad shouts back. To which Kutcher replies, with all the passion of the real Jobs, ”How does somebody know what they want if they’ve never ever seen it?”
