Ashton Kutcher - Ashton Kutcher 'Psychologically Complex' Enough To Play Steve Jobs

Ashton Kutcher was picked to play Steve Jobs because he can handle the ''psychological complexity'' of the character.

The 'Two and a Half Men' TV actor is set to play the technology mogul in the biopic 'Jobs: Get Inspired', and producer Mark Hulme says he chose him because he can embody the character not only physically, but mentally too.

Mark told Neowin.net: ''Since our film covers the early years of Apple, when Jobs was in his 20s, we needed an actor who could carry not only the youthfulness of Jobs at the time but also the psychological complexity.

''Because of that, and Ashton's physical similarities to Jobs, he's perfect for our film.

''When Ashton read the script he was immediately attracted to the project. He is a Steve Jobs and Apple fan, and is technologically savvy, as well, so he recognised the historical importance of Steve Jobs and the potential of the project. He is very excited to have the role.''

The film will follow the Apple corporation from 1971 to 2000, when Steve became the full time CEO of Apple for a second time.

Mark added that they had been working on the script ever since Steve formally stepped down from the company last August, due to il health. He then passed away in October from pancreatic cancer.

Mark said: ''On the day that his retirement was announced - with no big scandal or disaster - I noticed that the buzz about his retirement consumed our creative and IT staff for the entire day. I had never seen anything like that reaction. That was the spark. We immediately began researching and writing the screen play.''
