Ashton Kutcher prepares to play Steve Jobs
iPad publication The Daily reports that Ashton Kutcher is whole-heartedly preparing to play former Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Producer Mark Hulme of Five Star Feature Films:
"He is already meeting with folks that knew Steve Jobs. He's working with professionals to get inside the voice. He's letting his hair grow out. I understand he's canceled all meetings and actually canceled all other projects."
News of Kutcher's new gig was first announced by Variety on April 1st, prompting many to question if the notorious prankster had pulled a fast one. But it is a real project. The Daily reports that the indie film, which is not based on Isaacson's bio, will simply be called "Jobs."
