    Jobs star Ashton Kutcher couldn't have enjoyed playing Steve Jobs more.

    "For me, the idea of playing Steve Jobs, it was somebody who I admire and respect for his innovation and creation—that was an honor," the actor told E! News at the film's premiere last night.

    Kutcher (who just joined Vine, see his first video below!) continued, "And it was also an opportunity to spend three months studying how to be an innovator, how to build a successful business, how to be an entrepreneur, which is something that I'm really passionate and interested in. So it was a great privilege really."

    Meanwhile, Kutcher's Jobs costar Josh Gad is sounding of on whether or not he'd ever reprise his role of in the hit Broadway play he originally starred in The Book of Mormon.

    "We'll see," Gad smiled last night. "I always, always, always tell [writers] Trey [Parker] and Matt [Stone] to please, please, please, please when they run out of enough talented people who play those roles to give me a call because I'm sure at some point I'm going to want to just don the suit and get back out there. I would love it. If the door's open, I'll be there."
