News has spread that Ashton Kutcher is to become the next Steve Jobs……. well in the film industry anyway.
An indie film directed by Joshua Michael Stern is set to cast Kutcher as the late, great Steve Jobs. From the picture above you can see why. Even when you type in “Steve Jobs Ashton Kutcher” on Google it suggests “Ashton Kutcher Steve Jobs son”.
But, why other than looks would you pick him? Of all the people who could have been picked, I can’t understand it and it appears neither can a lot of Apple fans.
Like a lot of tech lovers, I admire Steve Jobs. He changed the phone industry, the music industry, created the tablet industry, lived for his work and was a world class business man. On the other hand Kutcher is a comedy actor at best. Someone whose most famous move was marrying Demi Moore.
If I wanted to see a movie about Steve Jobs, I’d want it to be more documentary-like. Like in Walter Isaacson’s book, I want to know the deep details. What made him tick, the arguments, the ideas, the people who helped and the people who tried to stop him.
Steve Jobs was a fascinating designer. He changed the world. The last person I’d pick is someone who played jokes on famous people to make a tv show. No wonder it has so many people’s backs up.
I only hope the infamous “Apple Lawyers” take a disliking to the idea to and do us all a favour.
