    Default Ashton Kutcher to Play Apple Founder Steve Jobs

    It's no April Fool's Joke as Variety is reporting that "Two and a Half Men" star Ashton Kutcher has landed the part of Apple founder, the late Steve Jobs, in the upcoming indie biopic Jobs, directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote) from a screenplay by Matt Whiteley.

    Kutcher's name was brought up shortly after Jobs' passing last October due to his resemblance to the Apple CEO during his early days as a hippie, which will be the starting point for the movie as it follows his path to becoming one of the most respected tech pioneers and businessmen.

    Stern's past directing gigs include the 2005 Aaron Eckhart movie Neverwas, Kevin Costner's political comedy Swing Vote and he's attached to direct the R-rated Carnaval, teaming John Cusack and Johnny Knoxville.

    The movie will be financed by Mark Hulme at Five Star Institute and is scheduled to start production once Kutcher goes on hiatus from the CBS series. Apparently, this is not the planned biopic based on Jobs' own autobiography, which was picked up by Sony shortly after his death.

    This should be about as good as Robin Williams as Popeye.

    I would love to see an accurate movie about Jobs' life. Kutcher is a solid pick for the role.

    I really need to see evidence that Ashton Kutcher can actually play someone besides Michael Kelso (read: act)

    God please no....

    Good thing this is not the "official" Steve Jobs movie. It's an indie movie from some 2nd rate producer.

    How does this guy keep getting gigs, I must be missing something.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    This is real, not an April Fools joke. And this isn't the script being commissioned by those that own the rights to the recent official biography. That script has been offered to Aaron Sorkin (A Few Good Men, West Wing, Social Network) but he hasn't accepted as far as I know. Clooney's been rumored for that movie, but I'd doubt that that happens.

    This is one of those movies that I believe is best served by a relatively no-name actor. I felt that way about The Davinci Code too. Sure Hanks did a decent job but these big name actors bring with them a certain amount of baggage as far as past characters. Kutcher = no chance in hell will I see this.

    Woz has officially lost his mind.

    Steve Wozniak is officially endorsing Ashton Kutcher to play Steve Jobs

    http://www.tmz.com/2012/04/03/steve-...er-steve-jobs/


    Chaz Bono should play Woz.
