Ashton Kutcher has signed on to play Apple cofounder Steve Jobs in a biopic called “Jobs”. The film will attempt to chronicle Steve Jobs journey from wayward hippie to cofounder of Apple, during which he becomes one of the most famous and creative entrepreneurs of our age.
This could be an Indie pic which Joshua Michael Stern(Swing Vote) will direct and the script is written by Matt Whiteley.
Personally I don’t believe that Ashton has the acting chops to pull this roll off. In my mind he’ll always just be that stoner kid from that 70s show or the douche bag who cheated on Demi Moore. So I’m going to have a hard time seeing him as the iconic Steve Jobs a man who pretty much changed the lives of an entire generation of people.
I wonder if this role will have any affect on his ability to stay on at CBS’s Two and A Half Men. Then again if he gets him off that show I guess this movie is a good thing.
