Last week we had a look at a couple of new photos from the jOBS movie set, which showed off actors Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad resembling Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak back in Apple's early days. Today, the folks behind the Macworld/iWorld expo have announced that the two stars will be making an appearance and will be attending a talk during the conference.
During the talk, Kutcher and Gad will be discussing their experiences portraying the two Apple geniuses back when they started the company in 1976. Musician Will.i.am is also planning to attend the conference this year, and will be speaking alongside Intel futurist Brian David Johnson about future technology and gadgets. Fred Armisen, star of Portlandia and Saturday Night Live, will also be present at MacWorld/iWorld 2013.
jOBS will officially be premiering at the Sundance Film Festival on January 27, just a few days before the start of Macworld/iWorld. The movie will then see a public debut sometime in April. Ashton Kutcher is a household name, so the film should definitely get a lot of attention, and while Josh Gad isn't as popular, he has starred in the 2008 film The Rocker with Rainn Wilson. He also made single-episode appearances in New Girl and Modern Family, as well as currently starring in a new NBC comedy called 1600 Penn, where he’s also the co-creator and executive producer.
Macworld/iWorld features upcoming products, apps, and various tech talks, and unlike most other annual tech events, Macworld/iWorld is open to the public. Tickets can be purchased starting at $25 for access to the Expo hall, and the convention is live from January 31 through February 2 at Moscone Center West in San Francisco, CA.
