Ashton Kutcher to Play Apple Co-Founder “Steve Jobs” in Upcoming TV Movie

Ashton Kutcher to play Steve Jobs in upcoming movie
It’s not like Ashton Kutcher needs the work or the attention these days…

Kutcher has recently taken over the sitcom “Two and a Half Men” from Charlie Sheen, is divorcing his wife Demi Moore, was pressured to buy Justin Bieber to buy a $6 million dollar mansion, and became Executive Producer on MTV’s revived “Punk’d” series – all in the last 8 months!

Kutcher's publicist confirmed this week that an independent production company is making a biography of the late Steve Jobs who died in October from pancreatic cancer.

The made for TV movie will begin filming in April 2012 and be ready for a possible fall release.

No word yet on what network will air the biography but it will cover Job’s career from his hippie years competing with Microsoft up to his death when he ran the world’s largest gadget maker after creating the iPhone, iPod, iPad, iTunes, and a host of other media innovations.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has chimed in about the project saying,

“As to the role of Steve Jobs I have little to say. Everyone has their own idea of who they think could play Steve the best. But when we started Apple at our young ages I decided not to put my nose and comments into every aspect of the company, like the color of boxes or the job responsibilities for a team. I would not step on the toes of people who had done these jobs for many years or decades. I would just do my engineering where I could not fail. So I look at the casting agencies and directors who are experts at casting. I trust that they considered all the relevant factors and made the best selection.

The fear that many might have is that Ashton Kutcher was selected because he's 'hot' right now. But I feel that his selection was done in the most professional manner. And I'm glad that he's on board. I think he'll put a lot into it and that he cares about this particular subject."

It is well known that Steve Jobs and Wozniak had a few rough moments during their career and Wozniak eventually parted ways letting Job’s take the helm and run with ball.

Their differences were well documented in another made for TV movie “Pirates of Silicon Valley” starring Noah Wyle as Jobs.
