Hi All,

So Ashton Kutcher has apparently been selected to star in an upcoming Steve Jobs biographical film. We has a little think about who should play who.


Any ideas? Who else should feature in the film?

It's sounds like a pretty low budget movie on Jobs, I think Walter's book version, which Sony currently owns the film rights to, will be 10 times better, and will hopefully feature somebody like george clooney as Steve !

Yeah, I agree. Ashton Kutcher may just be a promotional choice.

Do you think the Sony version will represent Apple and Jobs in a similar manner to the indie film or even to Walter Isaacson's biography?

Will they take a more critical view?

I'd actually like to see the big bucks version accurately reflect the corporate world in which Jobs operated. Tarantino should direct it, with Jack Nicholson as Jobs -

Cheers,

I can't believe they chose Ashton Kutcher.... what a doosh bag.

Thank heavens this wasn't the choice for the main film that will be made.

I agree JZ.

I don't know why Ken is fixated on George Clooney. He's too hollywoodish for the role.

I still say he is the wrong guy, I mean look at the ratings of two and a half men, since he took over, I rest my case.

Ashton was on a hiding to nothing taking over Two and a Half Men. If the show lasts three years with him in it, it will have been a success.
