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

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

    Honetly 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 he 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.

    Kill me now......

    Alls this guy does is yell his lines, and act like a complete idiot.....in "That 70s show" and in "Two and Half men". They could have created any character they wanted when he replaced Charlie. Yet they made another semi retarded character, who talks way to loudly. There is a reason all his roles are similar....he can't act! He plays himself in everything he has done, anything successful at least.

    Oh......And he used to prank celebs and video tape it.

    This is a absolute horrible choice. I'm sorry Steve.....You deserve MUCH better then this.

    Can we start some sort of protest?

    Maybe Borat would be a better choice.

    Well as far as acting goes they'll work on that. But it's pretty good that he pretty much looks similar. Give Ashton a break. What about butterfly effect?

    I can't take this guy seriously. I mean he's funny and all but to do a role like this, he just doesn't fit. What happened to Noah Wyle? He did Steve Jobs perfectly.

    Good actor but not to "be" Steve Jobs... For god... I hate him at two and a half men... The butterfly effect was a good movie but nothing else...

    you got to be shitting me......THIS GOT TO BE AN APRIL FOOL'S JOKE.....GOD PLEASE LET IT BE!!!!

    why can't the producers hire Noah Wyle to reprise the role of Jobs. Even Job's himself said that Noah did a better job at playing him than himself during a mac keynote. What an insult to Jobs and Mac fans......truly sad!!!

    please somebody start a petition.

    This is for an Independent Film and not for the proposed Sony Pictures Biopic, based on the Steve Jobs Biography Walter Isaacson wrote, that Aaron Sorkin is considering.

    Maybe Denzel Washington would have been a better choice?

    I'm not a Ashton fan but he may surprise you. Maybe he needs a role like this to step outside his box. Who knows, but I know I'm not going to say "kill me now!" or lose any sleep over who's going to play Steve Jobs in an indie biopic.

    I remember people use to say the exact same things about Jim Carey...but then when he nailed several more serious roles (Truman Show, Majestic, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The #23, etc.) people started to realize there was more to him than mindless, physical humor.

    Maybe it's Kutcher's time.

    I think Noah Wyle looked and did a pretty good job at playing Steve Jobs in Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999).

    You obviously haven't seen all of Kutchers movies.....

    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.

    He will do fine. This thread is turning into Topix.

    Can't wait to see it.
