Ashton Kutcher Cast as Late Apple Co-Founder Steve Jobs

Posted by Karen Benardello On April - 2 - 2012 0 Comment

Ashton Kutcher has been cast as late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in the upcoming indie biopic based on his life, ‘Jobs,’ Slashfilm is reporting. The film will be helmed by ‘Swing Vote’ director Joshua Michael Stern, based on a script by Matt Whiteley.

‘Jobs’ will follow the Apple co-founder’s life from when he was a hippie to when he helped create the important electronic company, “where he became one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time.” It hasn’t been reported yet if ‘Jobs’ will chronicle the business man’s later life, after he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Kutcher is expected to start shooting ‘Jobs’ in May, while ‘Two and a Half Men’ is on hiatus.

Besides the hit CBS sitcom and his hit FOX sitcom, ‘That ’70s Show,’ which helped launch his career, Kutcher is generally known for appearing in romantic comedies. It’s not known yet how Kutcher will fare in the dramatic role of a well-known personality on screen, but he has drawn attention for his dramatic turns in such films as ‘The Butterfly Effect’ and ‘Bobby.’ But the actor’s physical resemblance to the young Jobs has been gaining attention, a key element of a biopic.
