Floppy hair? Check. Internet savvy? Check. Less than a year after his death, the life of technology guru and Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs will be honored in an upcoming independent biopic entitled "Jobs" starring Ashton Kutcher.

The TV and movie actor, who bears a striking resemblance to a young Jobs, is slated to begin filming the movie in May during his hiatus from "Two and a Half Men." The plan is to begin production before a rival film, based on writer Walter Isaacson's lauded Jobs biography, gets off the ground. Jobs died on October 5, 2011.

"Jobs" will be directed by Joshua Michael Stern ("Swing Vote") and will chronicle Jobs' rise from a Northern California hippie upbringing to the co-founding of Apple, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Personally, I thought Stanley Tucci would have been better suited and understand its supposed to be a younger Jobs but Im skeptical if Kutcher can actually pull it off.

Stanley Tucci is too old for it. Jobs didn't always look like what everyone remembered him as when he died. Kutcher, on looks, fits the bill. Shame, though, because Kutcher, in reality, sucks.

Oh yeah for the concept of a younger Jobs of course, I just don't want AK to screw this up.

I am still amazed how Steve Jobs is hailed as some sort of genius hero. I somehow doubt this portray of his person.

It's a movie, not a documentary.

Hope they portray him as the cutthroat, genius, and asshole that he was.

I can see it.

I dont hate Kutcher that much. I would normally dislike an actor like him but for some reason I dont.

I think its because that 70's show was hilarious and I could never dislike anyone from it :rofl:

I like Kutcher. He's always been decently funny in his films. He's good in 2.5 men, too, he's just not Charlie Sheen, or that type of character (or person)

He was a complicated person. I'm reading his biography right now.
