Ashton Kutcher Will Anchor Steve Jobs Indie Biopic

Presumably because a young Steve Jobs looks mildly similar to Ashton Kutcher in this one picture, Kutcher will play Jobs in an upcoming indie biopic. The film, Jobs, begins shooting next month, when Kutcher's Two and a Half Men hiatus begins, Variety reports. (Followed by a Variety reporter's insistent tweet, that no, this isn't an April Fool's gag.) Don't get Jobs confused with Sony's forthcoming joint based on Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs bio. Also be wary of mistaking Kutcher for a dramatic actor, no matter how many times people say "but, The Butterfly Effect!" and "but, Bobby!" and "but, Ashton's going into space!"
