First clip from the jOBS movie released, Woz says it’s not even close to what actually happened
The first clip from the upcoming jOBS movie starring Ashton Kutcher as the late Steve Jobs and Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak has been released. In the short clip it shows Steve and Woz discussing how Woz has the ability to create a personal computer that actually displays information on a screen in real-time. The clip was discovered by Gizmodo and Steve Wozniak jumped into the original posts comments to have his say on the accuracy of the clip.
Not close...we never had such interaction and roles...I'm not even sure what it's getting at...personalities are very wrong although mine is closer...don't forget that my purpose was inspired by the values of the Homebrew Computer Club along with ideas of the value of such machines and Steve J. wasn't around and didn't attend the club so he was the one learning about such social impact of the future.
I never looked like a professional. We were both kids. Our relationship was so different than what was portrayed. I'm embarrassed but if the movie is fun and entertaining, all the better. Anyone who reads my book iWoz can get a clearer picture.
Of course the film was never going to be an exact replica of what actually went on back in those great days but the first available clip does appear to miss the mark by quite a bit; which is really disappointing. If you are looking for a film to closely represent what actually happened,you may have to wait a bit longer for the film being written by Aaron Sorkin and produced by Sony, which is based on the official Walter Isaacson biography of Steve Jobs.
