HOLY SH!T: Ashton Kutcher Cast As Steve Jobs In “JOBS”

Ashton Kutcher has been cast to portray former Apple CEO Steve Jobs in an upcoming indie-biopic titled Jobs.

Variety broke the story yesterday, but we decided to hold off awhile as something this catching could easily be a prank, then found ourselves slowly coming to grips when we woke this morning to find no punchlines anywhere.

Kutcher, who currently keeps the sitcom Two And A Half Men afloat, will portray the life of Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple. Joshua Michael Stern (“Swing Vote”) will direct from a script by Matt Whiteley. Five Star Institute’s Mark Hulme is financing and will produce the pic, which is scheduled to start production in May while Kutcher is on hiatus from his hit CBS series.

I know this may sound crazy at first, but click past the jump to see a side-by-side of Jobs and Kutcher that might just change your mind.

  1. I’m not sure how I feel about this… maybe it’s too soon for
    the biopic but we knew it was coming.  I
    just don’t know how seriously we can take an actor like Kutcher playing such an
    icon.  Jobs changed the entire world with
    a visionary model of communication. 
    Hopefully the script will do his life and alternative views
    justice.  Steve inspired a generation and
    inspired me to create a portrait of him with my surrealist artwork in an epic
    cyborg battle of Apple vs. Microsoft, which won’t be in the movie I can promise.  You can see it at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/08/end-of-era-steve-jobs.html
