Ashton Kutcher to Play Steve Jobs

Ashton Kutcher and Steve Jobs

Ashton Kutcher is set to play Apple founder Steve Jobs in a new movie.

The Two and a Half Men star - who is a renowned lover of gadgets - will play the late technology guru in an as-yet-untitled picture written by Matt Whiteley. Filming is set to star in May, and the film tells the tale of Steve's life "from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple, where he became one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time," according to Variety.

Ashton posted on Twitter when Steve died last year, using one of his own quotes to pay tribute to him. "Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works. - Steve Jobs RIP.(sic)" he wrote.
