Ashton Kutcher's next movie job will be to play Steve Jobs

Apr. 2, 2012by: Alejandro Stepenberg

Younger Ashton Kutcher

Young Steve Jobs

 

Well this is... unexpected, though the resemblance is rather uncanny.

Ashton Kutcher has briefly dabbled in the dramatic during the course of his career (THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT and BOBBY being all that comes to mind, and that's a stretch), but perhaps an indie film about "Jobs' meteoric rise from Northern California hippie to co-founder of Apple" is the perfect project with which to begin a career shift.  If he wants one, that is, since he seems to be doing plenty well enough for himself on CBS' series "Two and A Half Men." 

To be directed by Joshua Michael Stern (SWING VOTE), JOBS will begin shooting in May so as to get out of the gate well before Sony's own possibly-Aaron-Sorkin-scripted Steve Jobs biopic. 

What do you think? Will the script play up the rambunctiousness of youth so as to give Kutcher an easy time, or will he finally have a dramatic challenge?

Extra Tidbit: All I can do when I see Ashton Kutcher is hear Thomas Haden Church's voice from EASY A in my head, and it makes me grin...

don't like this at all...

the person I would like to see play jobs would be Mark Strong. I think he's an interesting actor who also carries a physical resemblance to jobs. bring him instead. or he can be in the aaron sorkin project maybe?

Jobs deserves a better calibre actor, not just someone who looks like him.

The only thing I've ever liked Ashton Kutcher in is The Butterfly Effect, but even that wasn't enough to convince me he'd be good in this. Jared Leto resembles Steve Jobs and he's a fantastic actor. Why not get him? At least get someone who has proven to be an effective dramatic actor.

Steve Jobs didn't even invent any of the Apple products. He just told people to make computers that he imagined. He isn't a genius. He is just a guy with a lot of money.

A day late

Wasn't April Fool's day yesterday.
Hollywood is more often than not clueless on projects. Just because he looks like Steve Jobs doesn't mean he should be given the part. I'm assuming this will be a drama not a comedy. At the end of the day it will be up to Ashton Kutcher to prove us wrong.

Too early?

No disrespect to Kutcher, but they could have easily casted someone better and more capable of giving a better dramatic performance.

I'm not defending the choice here or anything, but to be fair they could hire the weakest person ever to be the greatest warrior for example... that's why it's called acting.

Sure he has the look. But I can't see him as a serious actor. Really.
