Ashton Kutcher to Play Steve Jobs in Biopic

Apr 01, 2012 | 3:47pm EDT

ALTBetween That '70s Show and Two and a Half Men we know Ashton Kutcher can do comedy, but he isn't known for his dramatic ability. However, that may be about to change. Kutcher has signed on to play the title role in Jobs, an independent biopic on Steve Jobs' rise from California hippie to Apple CEO.

Kutcher, who closely resembles Jobs, is set to start filming when Two and a Half Men goes on hiatus in May. Five Star Institute's Mark Hulme is producing Jobs and hopes to get it into theaters before Sony's Jobs biopic, which is based on Walter Isaacson's best-selling biography. Sony's film has yet to be cast, so Noah Wyle, who played the CEO in the TV movie Pirates of Silicon Valley, still has a shot at reprising the role.
