We've seen plenty of images of Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs in the forthcoming jOBS biopic, but we haven't yet seen him alongside Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, until now. USA Today just published a few photos showing Kutcher alongside Josh Gad, who will be playing the role of the more technically-minded half of the pair. We've matched USA Today's photo (on the right) with one that appears to be from a similar time period above. While we've found Kutcher's resemblance to Jobs to be quite uncanny, Gad doesn't quite hit the mark as well, though there's definitely some resemblance. Hopefully Gad's acting chops will be sufficient to complete the picture for movie-goers.

We're only a few weeks away from the film's January 26th premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, at which point we should hear plenty more about how Gad manages to pull off Woz. For his part, Gad also finds the Kutcher / Jobs resemblance to be a bit of a shocker. "There is an eerie resemblance - he didn't have to do much to get there,'' Gad told USA Today. "When he showed up, it sent a ripple of shock throughout the set."
