Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, the film is described as an incredibly personal story covering nearly 40 years of Steve Jobs’ life and an intensely character-driven story that is as much a sweeping epic as it is a personal tale.
Kutcher is a celebrity actor, tech investor and producer. In 2000, he co-founded Katalyst, a media company creating original content for digital media, television and film. In 2011, he co-founded A-Grade Investments, a venture fund.
In 2010, Kutcher was named one of Time Magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential People. In that same year, his company, Katalyst, was named one of the year’s Top 50 Most Inspiring Innovators by Ad Age and one of Fast Company Magazine’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies.
Currently Kutcher stars in the CBS comedy series "Two and a Half Men."
Gad serves as an executive producer, co-creator and also stars as Skip Gilchrist, the president’s (Bill Pullman) clumsy, eldest son whose sincere attempts to do the right thing often go awry, in NBC’s family comedy “1600 Penn.”
His television credits include “Back to You,” and ABC’s “Modern Family,” as well as the animated series “Good Vibes,” where he voiced the character of Mondo.
