Steve Jobs, Ashton Kutcher
Ashton Kutcher plays a wealthy techie on the small screen, and now he's about to play one of the most famous techies on the big screen as well.
The Two and a Half Men star will play the late Steve Jobs in the indie film Jobs, Variety reports.
Report: Kutcher, Cryer offered two more years on Men ... but no raise!
Jobs will follow the Apple co-founder from willful hippie to running one of the most successful computer companies in the world. 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 hiatus 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.
