Ashton Kutcher lands role of Steve Jobs in new movie “Jobs”

Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs led a life faced with battles, not just in his obsession with computer perfection, but with the cancer that took his life in October 2011, at the age of 56.

Steve Jobs has not only left his mark on the world of technology, but is soon to be immortalized on film in an upcoming movie titled “Jobs.”

Two and a Half Men star, Ashton Kutcher has landed the lead role in “Jobs” and will be taking the creator of Apple computers and the iPhone to the big screen.

The film will chronicle Steve Jobs life from his early years, through his days at Apple, prior to his death last year.

Playing Steve Jobs could prove to be a leap for Ashton Kutcher, who is well known for his comedic roles both on television, and in films like “Dude, Where's my Car?” and “Just Married.”

However, Kutcher does look the part. His wild hair and air of confidence is something he shares with Jobs from his early years as a hippie-type at Reed College in Portland, Oregon.

No release date for “Jobs” has been set at this time, but the film could be a blockbuster hit, even if the theatre audience has to be told more than once to turn off their iPhones.
