  • Ashton Kutcher to Play Steve Jobs in Biopic, and No This Isn't a Late April Fools Post

    Honestly though, how much do these two look alike? And Steve Jobs looks like a living, breathing, Guy Fawkes mask...


    Looks like Ashton Kutcher and his wave of destruction knows no bounds. Variety is claiming Kutcher will play Steve Jobs in an upcoming bipoic.

    Huge disclaimer here: This is not the same Sony backed, Aaron Sorkin penned biopic that most associate with Jobs movie rumors. This is a separate “indie” biopic entitled “Jobs.” Still, Variety claims this is true, and not some horrible attempt at an April Fools joke.

    According to Variety Joshua Michael Stern (“Swing Vote”) will direct a script penned by Matt Whiteley and Five Star Institute’s Mark Hulme is financing the production. The production is scheduled to begin in May while Kutcher has down time from Two and A Half Men.

    The script will reportedly chronicle Steve Jobs life from “wayward hippie” to “co-founder” of Apple. Sounds like this story may hone its focus on a certain section of Jobs life instead of basing itself on the expansive Walter Isaacson penned biography.

    Ashton Kutcher. As Steve Jobs. It only makes sense that the greatest actor in modern cinema would represent a visionary like Steve Jobs.

      I think he looks a lot like Jobs and when he needs to play a serious role he can do it. I think for the hippie stage of Jobs' life, Kutcher will do a great job! I think may made a good choice casting him.
      totally agree. Ashton is a great candidate for the movie and by far when it comes to similarity, almost dead on,#2, this guy has been acting for decades and he gets my approval based on his experience and I simply believe that he can pull it off. But hey, he might suck too....(doubt it ).

      Well Steve Jobs was a prankster also.

      Dang, give the guy a break, Jeezus.
      Yea, most people see him as a comedic actor, but he's quite capable of playing serious roles. You all are trying to be movie critics. Wait for the movie to be released.

      I for one am excited to see Kutcher play this role. Hopefully he'll live up to the expectations of all these professional volunteer critics

      Ashton did a very good job in his movie where he played as Coast Guard rescue. I can't recall the name at the moment
