Ashton Kutcher to Play Steve Jobs in Biopic [REPORT]

Ashton Kutcher to Play Steve Jobs in Biopic [REPORT]

By Stan Schroeder on Mashable


Ashton Kutcher and Steve Jobs

Ashton Kutcher will play Steve Jobs in the indie biographical movie about Apple’s charismatic CEO, Varietyreports.
Matt Whiteley will write the script, and Joshua Michael Stern of Swing Vote fame will direct the movie, titled simply: Jobs.
The production is slated to start in May, when Ashton Kutcher is on leave from his main project, hit TV seriesTwo and a Half MenVariety claims.
Though the story broke on April 1, Variety’s Jeff Sneider said repeatedly on Twitter that the story is not an April Fools joke.
The movie should not be confused with another Steve Jobs biopic, based on Walter Isaacson’s biographical book and currently under development by Sony Pictures.
Looking at pictures of young Steve Jobs and Ashton Kutcher (especially in their respective bearded phases of life), we can definitely see a resemblance. Looking the part and acting it are two different things, though.
What do you think? Does Kutcher have the acting chops to portray one of the most charismatic businessmen of all time? Share your opinions in the comments.
