Ashton Kutcher to play Steve Jobs in new biopic
'Two and a Half Men' star Ashton Kutcher will portray former Apple CEO Steve Jobs in an upcoming indie film, TheWrap reported Monday. Is director Joshua Michael Stern taking a chance on Hollywood's favorite prankster?
Comedian-actor-prankster Ashton Kutcher has been slated to play Apple CEO Steve Jobs in an upcoming indie film, TheWrap revealed Monday. Production is slated to start in May after Kutcher’s show “Two and a Half Men” goes on hiatus.
The film “will chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple, where he became one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time,” Variety reports.
Kutcher is famous (or infamous) for the MTV show “Punk’d,” which documented celebrities getting pranked by Kutcher and his band of merry helpers. The ex-model had already gained a cult following after the 2000 release of “Dude Where’s My Car?”, in which he plays an absent-minded oaf alongside Sean William Scott. Just last May, Kutcher replaced Charlie Sheen in the hit comedy series “Two and a Half Men,” bringing him back under the spotlight.
