Ashton Kutcher Set to Play Steve Jobs In Biopic Film!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

That was fast.  Ashton Kutcher is set to play Steve Jobs in an independent film titled ‘Jobs’.  Joshua Michael Stern will direct from a screenplay by Matt Whiteley according to Variety.  Stern is mostly known for directing the Kevin Costner vehicle ‘Swing Vote’ while I can’t find anything Whiteley has done.  This might be his first big project.

The film will follow Steve Jobs from his younger days to him being the co-founder of Apple.  The film will start shooting early this summer while Kutcher is on break from ‘Two and Half Men’. I won’t be surprised to see a few other Steve Jobs films and documentaries coming out this year or next.  I believe Sony Pictures already has one in development as well.


Kutcher is by no means my first choice, but I’ve seen in his past films that he has a bit of acting chops in him.  I just hopes he pulls this off.  There are tons of Apple fanatics out there who are going to be putting this under a microscope, so Kutcher better be ready.  But I hope I’m wrong in thinking this was a poor casting decision.


Your thoughts?
