Ashton Kutcher to play Steve Jobs in movie

Ashton Kutcher, who got his break on "That '70s Show," will go back to the 1970s to play tech visionary Steve Jobs in an indie film about Jobs' early life and the founding of Apple.

Production on the film, "Jobs," is scheduled to begin in May while Kutcher is on hiatus from his CBS series "Two and a Half Men," reports Variety.

It will be directed by Joshua Michael Stern ("Swing Vote") and "will chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple."

    He is a d-bag of an actor. He ruined 2-1/2 Men. This is best they could find to play Jobs? -TB

    Why cant someone talented like Cuba Gooding Jr or Denzel Washington play this part? This is discrimination.

    I love his chiseled chin and jawline! If he wouldn't act like such a fool all of the time, he would actually be very, very attractive!
