MacworldiWorld 2013Macworld announced on Monday that the stars of the independent biopic jOBS, Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad, will headline a panel at the show, while rock star Will.i.am will give a talk on technology and his latest iOS products.

Macworld/iWorld runs from January 31 to February 2 at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco. Kutcher and Gad will be part of a panel called “Playing Steve & Woz” that details their experiences portraying the Apple co-founders in the forthcoming film. The film is due to premiere at the Sundance film festival this weekend, where it will be the closing night film. Clips from the movie may be shown as part of the panel with Kutcher and Gad, who played Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak during the years just before Apple was created through to just before the introduction of the iPod in 2001.

The independently-made film will be the first major movie looking at Jobs’ life, but not the last — Sony is preparing a big-budget film focusing on Jobs’ life, currently being scripted by The Social Network’s Aaron Sorkin, but has not yet commenced shooting and is not expected for some time. Kutcher, who bears a strong resemblance to jobs when made up and costumed, won praise for his performance at a screening in Cannes.

Josh Gad, who plays Wozniak, is best known for his work in The Book of Mormon. Their session will start at 9AM local time on the main stage on Thursday, January 31.
