Ashton Kutcher is Steve Jobs
Kutcher headlines director Joshua Michael Stern's "jOBS," one of 18 star-studded premieres announced Monday for Robert Redford's independent-cinema showcase.
Chronicling 30 years in the life of the Apple mastermind who died last year, "jOBS" is the closing-night film at Sundance.
The role is a dramatic departures for Kutcher, best-known for broad movie comedies and the TV sitcoms "That '70s Show" and "Two and a Half Men."
But dramatic departures often are what it's all about at Sundance. It presents films out of the mainstream that let top-name talent take a break from the Hollywood mold.
"A lot of these actors are looking to spread out of their comfort zones," said Sundance director John Cooper. "It's about doing something different for them."
Critical thinking challenge: Why is the first letter of the movie's title – “jOBS” – lowercase?
Define these words: mastermind, mainstream
