You've got to hand it to Ashton Kutcher. He's doing a fine job of using his star power to drown out early, tepid critical response to his latest film about the late founder of Apple. First, in an apparent attempt to get wider audiences buzzing, the first "jOBS" clip debuted on Entertainment Tonight (and notably not on a film-geek or pop culture outlet such as Entertainment Weekly, Slashfilm or even our own Yahoo! Movies). The clip got out just ahead of the film's premiere at Sundance last week.
nd now, Kutcher's latest savvy attempt to get audiences pumped about a biopic that one critic likened to a television movie is a split-screen photo that seamlessly matches half of his face with half of the face of the late Steve Jobs. Kutcher posted the photo on Twitter in tandem with the premiere of the film and thanked Sundance for supporting it. Now, a few days later, it's making the rounds online.
The photo melds Kutcher in full makeup as a late-era Jobs with a pic of the actual, famed Apple entrepreneur in one of his most iconic poses.....which side is which?
