Kutcher to play Steve Jobs in film?

Ashton Kutcher could be showing off his dramatic chops as he is rumoured to be playing Apple boss Steve Jobs in an upcoming biopic.

The Two And A Half Men star - who looks slightly like the late inventor, who passed away last October - is apparently preparing himself for the lead role in Joshua Michael Stern's film, Jobs, reported Variety.

Written by Matt Whiteley, the drama is expected to chronicle Jobs' life "from a wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple".

Production is expected to get underway in May.

This is the second movie about Jobs, following Sony's planned project which Aaron Sorkin was considering to write.

Ashton, whose last big-screen outings were in romantic comedies New Year's Eve and No Strings Attached, is currently focusing on his role on the hit TV show, where he took over from Charlie Sheen.
