Kutcher to play Apple founder Jobs
Ashton Kutcher is to play late Apple founder Steve Jobs in an upcoming biography.
Ashton's publicist confirmed that the independent film Jobs will begin production in May while the actor is on hiatus from the US sitcom Two And A Half Men.
Variety first reported the casting news.
The 34-year-old actor, who has more than 10 million Twitter followers, will portray Jobs through his rise from hippie to hugely revered technological entrepreneur as the co-founder of Apple.
Jobs died last October after a long battle with cancer.
