Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs for Movie

"The Two and a Half Men star Ashton Kutcher will play the late Steve Jobs in the indie film "Jobs", Variety reports. 
Also Reported: Ashton Kutcher and John Cryer get two more years on Men... but no raise? 
The Movie "Jobs" will follow the Apple co-founder from early hippie to starting and running one of the most successful computer companies in the world, Apple!. Matt Whitley wrote the script and Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote) will direct the film. 
Kutcher, who is currently negotiating a deal to return to Men next season, will start shooting "Jobs" in May while on his break from the CBS sitcom. 
ER star Noah Wyle previously played Jobs opposite Anthony Michael Hall as Bill Gates in the 1999 TNT movie Pirates of Silicon Valley. 
Jobs died in October 2011 at the age of 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer."

Report gathered from TVGuide.com and Variety.com

Applenewsonline's take: While we were pulling for Noah Wyle to return to his fantastic role as Steve Job's, we think it an intersting pick for Kutcher as the role of Job's...but hard to see it as he has done mostly comedy and Wyle more dramatic roles...so we shall see how this plays out.
