Ashton Kutcher - Ashton Kutcher Cast As Apple Founder Steve Jobs In Biopic

Ashton Kutcher has been cast as the late Apple founder Steve Jobs in a forthcoming biopic by Joshua Michael Stern. The actor - currently the lead star on Two and a Half Men - shares a slight resemblance to the technology guru and will play Jobs in the currently-untitled project chronicling his journey from "wayward hippie" to creative icon, reports Variety.
The movie will be competing with a rival biopic based on Walter Isaacson's bestselling authorized biography on Jobs. Though Stern has landed a big-name in Kutcher for the lead, the rival project is reportedly being penned by Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. Little else is known of the Kutcher project, though producer Mark Hulme told The Wrap, "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". The movie is likely to shoot as early as May, with producers looking to rush the project to screen before Sony finishes its rival film.
Kutcher replaced Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men last year, and recently hit the headlines following a high profile split from wife Demi Moore. His movie credits include a slew of badly received romantic comedies such as New Year's Eve and No String Attached, though his more serious efforts have included The Butterfly Effect and Bobby.
