Will Ashton Kutcher take on the role of Steve Jobs in an upcoming movie?

If Kutcher can play Jobs alongside Seann William Scott as Wozniak in the upcoming movie "Dude, Where's My Mac?" It is not the problem, but if the film will be made.

No one saw the Silicon Valley Pirates, it's huge in geek circles but not outside, and that's because believe it or not the average citizen doesn't give a damn about how their computer was made, or how computers work, or how computers were created. !

Techcrunch didn't buy the HuffPo, it was the other way around, remember?

If Kutcher can play Jobs alongside Seann William Scott as Wozniak in the upcoming movie "Dude, Where's My Mac?" It is not the problem, but if the film will be made.

No one saw the Silicon Valley Pirates, it's huge in geek circles but not outside, and that's because believe it or not the average citizen doesn't give a damn about how their computer was made, or how computers work, or how computers were created. !

Techcrunch didn't buy the HuffPo, it was the other way around, remember?

There's a reason Hollywood uses montages all the time, when was the last time you saw a movie about how Invention X was made? there's a lot about the "creative process" of everything from commercials and magazines to even other movies, but engineering? Only science fiction movies do that and everything is made up.

That means a movie about Jobs will be a biopic, like The Aviator - in that movie we only saw little glimpses of how Hughes worked, and it was more about how crazy he was and how he persevered, even though it ends before he left. To Vegas, I got involved with Mormons and stuff.

You know, when things got really crazy ...

But Hughes never wrote a book that told literally everything. Once it's not "too soon," guess what parts of Steve Jobs's life Hollywood is going to use? the part where you spent years making the Mac? Or the part where you abandoned your daughter?

Think about it, Hollywood hates reality and loves controversy, loves historical events reimagined when the reimagined part means "completely made-up stuff written by some guy."

And the best (or worst) thing is that, unlike The Social Network, they don't have to shove things up their ass to make Jobs look bad like he did Zuck, because his own book is already packed with dramatic moments.

No this movie will never be made and this is why: I could be wrong about this, I often am, my batting average for predictions like this is 50 50, but reading all the stories about this MAYBE MOVIE DEAL on dozens of trade newspapers in Hollywood and now here ..., I think this movie will NEVER be made and it will NOT happen. This whole news cycle about AK's role as SJ was just a test balloon. From now on, if you read press releases SLOWLY and not as fast as we read on screen these days, you will see

Ashton has been talked about for this role, but there are no contracts, the movie has NOT been lit green, it is a mere IN development deal, which means there is a 99 percent chance it will never be made. many media outlets took up the bait hook line and the plumb bob from the press release.

Ashton Kutcher to play Steve Jobs


The king of Twitter is now the king of Apple, as "Two and a Half Men" star Ashton Kutcher will play Steve Jobs in the independent film "Jobs," which Joshua Michael Stern ("Swing Vote") will direct. from a script by Matt Whiteley.

The film will chronicle Steve Jobs, from rebellious hippie to co-founder of Apple, where he became one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time.


Mark Hulme of the Five Star Institute is funding and will produce the film, which is scheduled to begin production in May, while Kutcher is on hiatus from his hit CBS series.

CAA, representing both Kutcher and Stern, will represent the film's national distribution rights.

While Kutcher was last seen in Garry Marshall's film "New Year's Eve" and the romantic comedy "No Strings Attached," he garnered strong attention for his more serious twists on David Mackenzie's sexual dramaturgy "Spread" and in Emilio Estévez's historical drama "Bobby". "

Stern, who made his directorial debut with Aaron Eckhart's 2005 vehicle "Neverwas," previously directed Disney's 2008 election comedy "Swing Vote," headlined by Kutcher's "The Guardian" co-star Kevin Costner. Helmer is also directing Stone Village's "Carnival," an R-rated comedy that pairs John Cusack with fellow CAA client Johnny Knoxville.

In addition to CAA and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern, Kutcher and Stern are respectively represented by Untitled Entertainment and 3 Arts Entertainment.
Sony Pictures is currently developing its own image of Steve Jobs, based on Walter Isaacson's best-selling book.

Sony Pictures bought the rights to the next authorized biography of Steve Jobs on October 8. This just means that they have the rights to turn it into a movie one day. That said, there is no way of knowing, as of now, who will play a young Steve Jobs. It may take a few years for them to decide to green light the project and assemble a cast.

My heart sank when I read this - he's always been weak as an actor, but I caught an episode of Two & A Half Men by accident (couldn't find the remote to turn, I promise) and I must say he was shocked. I...

... going even lower in my estimates.

If I were in charge of this movie, I would ask myself this;

"If this movie is successful, it would have created a world where some people will also think of Ashton Kutcher when they think of Steve Jobs. Is that something to be proud of?"

If the answer was yes, I would fire myself and then shoot myself in the head.

Deciding to take on this role was very difficult. I greatly admire the work Steve Jobs has done and I have many friends and colleagues who knew and / or worked for Steve. So when I read a play that wasn't entirely flattering to her character, I had huge reservations. But I chose to take on the role for a couple of reasons.

  1. It matters to me. As I read the script, my stomach knotted. I envisioned actors playing the role and not connecting with the love that was in some of the seemingly irrational decisions Steve made at times. If this movie becomes a lasting memory of a man I admire,

Deciding to take on this role was very difficult. I greatly admire the work Steve Jobs has done and I have many friends and colleagues who knew and / or worked for Steve. So when I read a play that wasn't entirely flattering to her character, I had huge reservations. But I chose to take on the role for a couple of reasons.

  1. It matters to me. As I read the script, my stomach knotted. I envisioned actors playing the role and not connecting with the love that was in some of the seemingly irrational decisions Steve made at times. If this movie becomes a lasting memory, of a man I admire, I wanted to make sure it was played by someone who cared about his legacy and took the time to portray it in a way that the people close to Steve felt authentic. . .
  2. The idea of ​​playing the part terrified me. I found that the greatest rewards I have ever received come from taking advantage of opportunities to face the things that scare me. The opportunity to portray someone who not only lived, but is still very relevant and alive in the zeitgeist seemed like a once in a lifetime challenge.
  3. It was a perfect convergence in my craft and my interests. I have spent the last 5 years working with early stage technology companies as an investor and advisor. Whenever you take on a role, it's like a crash course on the subject of the movie. So while researching the position, I was able to spend countless hours studying technology design, products, and history. It also gave me the opportunity to meet several of Steve's colleagues who happen to be icons of the tech world.
  4. I loved what the movie represents. I think with the state of the global economy it is vital to inspire young people to build things. I wanted to remind entrepreneurs that Steve Jobs was not always "Steve Jobs," that he struggled, failed, and rigorously persevered to build something great to improve other people's lives.

No, it is not.

In fact, the arrogance behind a decision that you think you can replace the main character in a sitcom and not have a profound effect on the quality of the show is staggering. This is simply one of the worst movements in television history.

To be fair, I've always hated Two and a Half Men. I thought it's tacky, rude, and bland nonsense whose main premise shouldn't have taken it out of its first season, let alone made it one of the most popular sitcoms of recent times. While I admire Jon Cryer, and feel sorry for Holland Taylor, (does he really need that much money?) This show

While I admire Jon Cryer, and feel sorry for Holland Taylor, (does he really need that much money?), This show is just rubbish.

However, removing the brother and uncle from the two main supporting characters and replacing them with a person NOT RELATED TO THEM is incredibly stupid. For that same person to be (at best) a third-rate hacker whose comedic skills weren't enough to land him a successful film career or even a prominent role in a mediocre nostaglia show, makes the whole company still. more absurd.

While I can understand that Charlie Sheen's behavior was unacceptable in a professional setting, replacing him with Ashton Kutcher was (and is) the intellectual equivalent of replacing the US Army with the South Vietnamese Army during the Vietnam War.

He is a proven loser who will just keep losing.

Ratings aside, this show is now worse than when it started. Since creative quality is not a measure that can be used to judge this show, one can simply hope that it is canceled soon before Mr. Kutcher and his cast get even more embarrassed.

This is the worst show in the history of modern television (My Mother The Car looks like "classic television" in comparison) and Mr. Kutcher is one of the least funny actors I have had the misfortune to witness. to cancel this charade, I would do so immediately and without hesitation.

I spent about 3 months preparing the character.

I started by consuming content about Steve Jobs. The script was a fantastic resource, but after reading it I was left with as many questions as answers about why it was the way it was and why it made some of the decisions that it did. I started by watching Silicon Valley Historical Association documentaries and interviews about him and collecting YouTube Inspired By Jobs: Technology content and Soundcloud archives about jobs.

This was to try and understand some of the general themes of his character. What he was looking for were consistent patterns of behavior and

I started by consuming content about Steve Jobs. The script was a fantastic resource, but after reading it I was left with as many questions as answers about why it was the way it was and why it made some of the decisions that it did. I started by watching Silicon Valley Historical Association documentaries and interviews about him and collecting YouTube Inspired By Jobs: Technology content and Soundcloud archives about jobs.

This was to try and understand some of the general themes of his character. What he was looking for were consistent behavior patterns and ideals. I heard him repeat his story about how a computer is a tool for the mind and that we should all be brave enough to create the world we live in. I also picked up on its value for diverse education through experience. Then I began to analyze the nuances of his behavior, the walking, the fact that he lisped almost imperceptibly, his accent that was a combination of Northern California and Wisconsin, the way he paused before answering and nodded in understanding. , the way he would bow in namaste when receiving praise and look down on him when in conflict.

Once armed with this external impression, he wanted to get a better idea of ​​why he saw the world the way he did. I wanted to know why he liked what he liked and pursued what he pursued. So I started consuming what I was consuming.
Books You Read: Autobiography of a Yogi: Paramahansa Yogananda, Mucusless Diet Healing System: Arnold Ehret, Be Here Now: Ram Dass.
Researching the artists I admired: Bauhaus, Folon, Ansel Adams
Eating what I ate: grapes, carrot juice, popcorn
Studying the entrepreneurs I admired: Edison, Edwin Land

Then I met with the people I knew and worked with to unravel some of the subtle quirks and conflicting decision-making that I couldn't rationalize. Alan Kay, Avi Tevanian, Jeffery Katzenberg, Mike Hawley, and many others were terrific resources.

I then worked with my acting coach Greta Seacat to relate her emotionality and behavior to mine. She helped me make it personal and authentic.

But in the end, one of the best indications of man was his creations. They were elegant, smart, thoughtful, precise, artistic, bold, visionary, complicated, efficient, fun, entertaining, powerful, flawed, and beautiful inside and out ... just like Steve.
