Yesterday it was announced that Ashton Kutcher is set to play Apple founder Steve Jobs in the upcoming biopic Jobs. Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote) is set to direct.
Kutcher has been talked about for the role since shortly after Jobs’ death last October, largely due to how similar Kutcher looks to Jobs during his early hippie days. The movie is expected to start at that point in Jobs’ life.
Kutcher still hasn’t confirmed the news via his Twitter, and fans are a little skeptical since the news was posted yesterday on April Fools Day, but other sources picking up the news today insist that it is legit.
