Ashton Kutcher, Will.I.Am, and Fred Armisen all to make appearances at Macworld/iWorld expo

It's going to be a star studded week at the upcoming Macworld/iWorld expo

Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad, the two actors respectively portraying Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in the upcoming biopic "Jobs," will both be hitting up this year's annual Macworld/iWorld conference in San Francisco next week. The conference, which if you recall is no longer officially attended by Apple, is slated to kick off on January 31 and will run through February 2 at Moscone Center West in San Francisco.

Gad and Kutcher will take the mainstage at the conference where they will talk about the iPhone 6. Kidding. They'll actually talk about their experience playing the Apple co-founders in Jobs, which will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival later this month and in theaters this coming April.

Some other celebrities of note who will be in attendance include Fred Armisen of Saturday Night Live and, of course, Black Eyed Peas front man Will.I.Am. Armisen in particular will discuss how he personally uses Apple products to enhance and assist his creative endeavors.

In addition to the aforementioned celebrities, there will also be a who's who list of speakers. You can check out a full list of expected speakers right here. A lot of recognizable names there, including Jon Gruber, Jacqui Cheng, Dan Moren, Rogue Amoeba CEO Paul Kafasis, and Ton Marvuglio - the assistant VP for Academic Technology at the Berklee College of Music.

A three day pass to everything (Expo Hall + Tech Talks + Live Zone access) costs $100 or $125 if you want to get a ticket onsite. Tickets just to the Expo Hall - which houses 250 exhibitors and iOS and OS X developers - will just set you back $25 if you order before January 30. Getting an Expo pass on-site will run you $45.
