People can surprise you. For example, sometimes you think someone is going to be a major figure in your life — a best friend, maybe, whom you think you’ll have forever — and then one day it turns out they’re just not someone you want to surround yourself with anymore. And sometimes you write someone off completely the first time you meet them and then, years later, you meet them again and then it turns out that you guys are going to get married! And sometimes you think that if you just got the chance to meet your favorite celebrity they would definitely for sure fall in love with you and that you would both live happily ever after, and then you meet them and they DO fall in love with you, but it turns out you don’t actually like them very much and they are much shorter than you thought they would be. And then sometimes an actor who you thought would maybe not do the best job as Steve Jobs in the Steve Jobs biopic, an actor who was probably only cast because of the slight resemblance he bares to the man who completely changed the way we interact with technology, puts on a pair of jeans and a black turtleneck and then just totally BECOMES Steve Jobs. And you can’t even tell who’s who anymore. Just an incredible transformation. People do surprise you. Full-size photo-realistic Steve Jobs costume photo after the jump. (Via SlashFilm.)

  1. I never pictured young Steve Jobs as being quite so racist.

  2. Kelly, Aaron was a disappointment? That sucks. I heard he was a genuinely nice guy.

  3. He’s going to Ashton Butcher this role.

    Annnnnnnnd off to bed with me. Goodnight from Korea, Monsters!

  4. I am 110% positive that if I met Ryan Gosling, he would fall madly in love with me, and I would probably realize that he is even more amazing than I would have ever imagined. Then, I would divorce The Narrator and run off with Gos.

    • “I am 110% positive that if Nightmare met Ryan Gosling, he would fall madly in love with her, and she would probably realize that he is even more amazing than I would have ever imagined. Then, she would divorce The Narrator and run off with Gos… only to have Gos run into the arms of The Narrator!” — M. Night Shyamalan

    • “The Gos runs into the arms of the Narrator, who would get divorced from Nightmare who left him for the Gos, who is even more amazing than she would have ever imagined when he falls madly in love with her once they meet, when she is 110% positive that if they did ever meet, would be in love with her, even though she’s married to the Narrator” – Christopher Nolan

    • I am 110% positive that if I met Jason Schwartzman, he would fall madly in love with me, and I would probably realize that he is even more amazing than I would have ever imagined. Then, I would divorce Luke Wilson and run off with Bill Murray.

    • “I am 110% positive that if I met Ryan Gosling, he would fall madly in love with me, and I would probably realize that he is even more amazing than I would have ever imagined. Then, I would divorce The Narrator and run off with Gos. Then robots would show up and everything will blow up” – Michael Bay.

    • “I am 110% positive that if I met Ryan Gosling, he would fall madly in love with me, and I would probably realize that he is even more amazing than I would have ever imagined. Then, I would poison The Narrator and murder Gos. Everyone would die! Haha, I’m probably a Nazi.” – Lars Von Trier

    • “I am 110% positive that if I met Johhny Depp, he would fall madly in love with me, and I would probably realize that he is even more amazing than I would have ever imagined. Then, I would divorce Michael Keaton and run off with Depp. Pplus everyone’s wearing black clothing and lots of eye makeup” – Tim Burton

  5. Thunk Duh-fferent

    • Celebrity pranks? There’s an app for that.

      • Q. What is Ashton Kutcher’s favorite kind of pie?

        A: Von Dutch Apple

      • Kutcher should visit an Apple plant in China as Steve Jobs and act like he’s really concerned about the working conditions found there. Then, just as the factory employees are thinking that maybe ‘Steve Jobs’ will bring about some change in the treatment of employees, Topher Grace could walk in and be like “Ashton, what are you doing here?” and then all of the workers would know it was a gag, and they’d all probably have a very polite Asian laugh about it. THEN Kutcher, as himself, would be like “Topher, wanna grab a bite?” and Topher would say, “sorry man I can’t, I gotta get back to work.” and THEN Ashton would get all sad and reflect on the crazy way the world works sometimes, specifically in how his career, in contrast to Topher’s, has taken off since ‘that 70s show’, even though as actors they were both about equal in terms of their Hollywood marketability, but THEN Kutcher would cheer up because he finds out that he gets a free iPad.

        because, you know, prankz. iPrankz.

  6. As Gizmodo pointed out yesterday, this movie is supposed to be covering the first half of Jobs’ life BEFORE he adopted his signature jeans/mock turtle neck/New Balance look. So we’ve got young Steve Jobs in old Steve Jobs clothes. They didn’t even get the shoes right. UGH.

  7. Starbucks ice coffee to complete the look…I’m nailing this guys!

  8. It might do Ashton Kutcher some good to learn about someone who truly was aleader and a visionary. It might ground Ashton a little, allow him to realize that when it all comes down to it he’s an actor who makes heaps of money to entertain people. He’s not going to change the world and he probably shouldn’t have an inflated view of his own importance and influence. Just kidding, PROTRAYING A GREAT MAN WILL MAKE YOU A GREAT MAN! Ashton, you have arrived!

  9. The Turtleneck Effect

  10. iDon’t care.

  11. Rumor is Demi is doing a biopic on Jobs’ wife called: “Just Laurene”

  12. Things a genius (Steve Jobs) as played by Ashton Kutcher can be expected to say: “Dude, I have to poop!!!”

    That baby Mensa from the Today Show knows what I’m talkin’ bout.

  13. Too soon.
