Ashton Kutcher to play Apple founder in Steve Jobs biopic

I cant think of a worse possible candidate for such a role...Except maybe Ricky Gervais

Ashton Kutcher has been cast as Steve Jobs in one of two competing biopics about the late founder of Apple, reports Variety.



Kutcher, who bears some resemblance to the young Jobs, has been cast in a version by Swing Vote's Joshua Michael Stern, which will chronicle the entrepreneur's journey from "wayward hippie" to co-founder of the iconic technology firm, "where he became one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time".


"I had the idea the day Jobs retired and I notice several IT and art directors at my company all in a buzz," producer Mark Hulme of Five Star Insitute told TheWrap. "I was observing that day how distractive his retirement was to the marketplace and I knew in my heart that his story was the film I wanted to do".

I figure the Apple fans are hating this. I feel for them. Kutcher couldn't act his way out of a wet paper bag. I would have chosen Stanley Tucci.

Kelsey Grammar would have made a good match, hes a great actor :)

I'm not a fan of Apple at all, but I do respect how good at Marketing Steve Jobs was.
