Two years ago Ashton Kutcher took on the role of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

Unfortunately, not many critics had praise for the film or his portrayal of the tech-giant. E! News said it was an "unsatisfying portrayal of an icon who deserved better."

Now Michael Fassbender is taking on the role in Steve Jobs, the biopic directed by Danny Boyle. 

Michael Fassbender will play Steve Jobs in Universal's film to be released in October.

The film, and Michael's performance, has been the subject of much buzz already. At a recent press conference in New York, the Michael, 38, was asked about what kind of work he put into preparing for the role.

The German-Irish actor admitted that he knew very little about Jobs or technology in general before the project. 

"I'm not very interested in technology. I use it pretty poorly. So everything was new to me to be honest."

Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs in the Universal film.

The actor, who apparently opts not to use a smartphone, also revealed that he was not the first choice to play the part:

“Obviously I don’t look anything like Steve Jobs. That was the first thing I said to Danny. I said: ‘Christian Bale looks a lot more like Steve Jobs than me.’”

Christian Bale was actually supposedly the first actor to be offered the role. 

So, how did Michael prepare himself to take on such a well-known figure? The Guardian reports that a 'smirking' Michael informed the press: "I studied Ashton Kutcher."

Although, Steve Wozniack, the Apple co-founder told Deadline:

"I saw a rough cut and I felt like I was actually watching Steve Jobs and the others…not actors playing them."

So perhaps Ashton's performance did give Michael some clues after all?
