Ashton Kutcher To Play Steve Jobs In Upcoming Indie Biopic

Variety reports that actor Ashton Kutcher will be playing Steve Jobs in an upcoming independent movie called Jobs. The movie is set to start production in May while Kutcher’s CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men is in between seasons.

The film will chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple, where he became one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time.

The Hollywood Reporter also reports on the news and provides the comparison shot above between Kutcher and Steve Jobs from 1977. It should be noted that this is a separate project from the Sony project that had acquired the rights to the Walter Isaacson authorized biography.
