The nice thing about playing a tech billionaire in movies? You don't exactly have major costume demands. Just ask Jesse Eisenberg, who played Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in "The Social Network," and almost always wore a hoodie onscreen.

Steve Jobs circa 1981 or 1982 is shown at left, and Ashton Kutcher, playing Jobs, is shown at right.
Now Ashton Kutcher is enjoying the same mellow dress code as he plays Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. A photo released by the Sundance Institute for the upcoming film "jOBS" (capitalization theirs, reportedly to play off the titles of products such as Apple's iMac and iPad) shows Kutcher, in jeans and a casual shirt, perched on a desk with a retro computer behind him.
The film's photo was staged to resemble a real 1981 or 1982 photo of Jobs, and it's pretty spot on.
And speaking of accuracy, filming for the movie began in June at Jobs' actual childhood home, including scenes shot in the garage where Jobs and Steve Wozniak founded Apple.
'jOBS" will close the Sundance Film Festival in January, according to The Hollywood Reporter. No theatrical release date has been announced.
