Ashton Kutcher To Play Steve Jobs In Upcoming Biopic

Ashton Kutcher has just signed on to star as Steve Jobs in the indie pic "Jobs," according to Variety.

"The film will chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple," reports the trade.

Kutcher will shoot the film in May while on hiatus from his CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men."

Five Star Institute's Mark Hulme is set to finance and produce the film, while Joshua Michael Stern ("Swing Vote") will direct from a script by Matt Whiteley.

When Jobs passed away in October, Kutcher took to Twitter to express his condolences:

"I never thought I could be so busted up about the loss of someone I never met. #stevejobs. Sending love & light to everyone @Apple & the entire Jobs family. Today we lost a Giant who will be missed even by those who didn't know him."

Doesn't sound like an April Fool's joke to us.
