Ashton Kutcher 'Very Excited' to Play Steve Jobs

Ashton Kutcher 'Very Excited' to Play Steve Jobs

Ashton Kutcher steps out to grab some coffee with a mystery gal on Tuesday (April 17) in Los Angeles.

The 34-year-old Two and a Half Men star was recently announced to be taking on the role of Steve Jobs in the upcoming flick Jobs: Get Inspired.

Mark Hulme, who is the producer of the film, revealed in a recent interview why Ashton was chosen for the film which focuses on the Apple corporation from 1971-2000.

“Since our film covers the early years of Apple, when Jobs was in his 20′s, we needed an actor who could carry not only the youthfulness of Jobs at the time but also the psychological complexity,” Mark expressed. “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 recognized the historical importance of Steve Jobs and the potential of the project. He is very excited to have the role.”

FYI: Ashton is wearing a Levi’s shirt.

    What a joke. Just use Noah Wylie again and be done with it. Ashton is a terrible actor.

  • @Keira: he must heard people calling him a glorified business… the truth is hard to accept…


    they can hear, and see what your visually thinking
    this is the complete truth
    The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces, segregate from everybody else-only associate with Asians and don’t associate with non Asians that much, and are very unfriendly in general is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read minds. If all over a billion Asians where to show facial expressions all the time just as much as non Asians, integrate and associate with non Asians much more, and be much more friendly and talkative, then a lot of them might accidentally reveal that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they don’t like, find astonishing, or funny etc because those people might see that and and really wonder what that was that just happened there and see the connection, and they might accidentally say something similar to what the person was just thinking and going to say. If they all associated with non Asians a lot more then there would be a lot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those people think things they don’t like etc, so they segregate and only associate with Asians so there won’t be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place.
    Think about it, it’s not normal how a lot of them act, it’s not normal human behavior! and the entire way they act is all to hide their mind reading abilities, it makes perfect sense to do all of that to hide that they can read minds, because all of that is the perfect way to do it!
    Every single Asian alive is hiding their mind reading abilities, they don’t want anybody to know that they can read minds, they will always deny that they can read minds, they will lie about having mind reading abilities forever!!!
    Because they value hiding their mind reading abilities more then their own lives!
    That’s why nobody knows about it!
    Try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something absolutely crazy as you possibly can when you are around Asians, and try looking for Asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, that is them giving people looks when they hear and visually see someone thinking something they don’t like, find astonishing, or funny etc.
    It still happens despite a large percentage of Asians having completely expressionless faces all the time, it would just happen a lot more if none of them had completely expressionless faces all the time, it’s still not uncommon!
    I know this may sound crazy, impossible and unbelievable, BUT IT ISN’T CRAZY WHEN ITS TRUE
    You have to spread the message!!!!!!
    The world has to know about this!!!!!!

  • jez7

    WTF. This is about as good an idea as handing the role to Justin Timberdouche who also seems to get everything these days. Hollywood is drowning in it’s own cr*p.
