Ashton Kutcher playing Steve Jobs never crossed my mind. But when he had his long hair and beard he does look the part.

In terms of acting ability I think he's really good. He can make stupid comedies but he can be serious when the role requires it. He was very good in both the Butterfly Effect and The Guardian. Two of my favourite films.

Please let this be a joke, just so there will be at least one good April Fool's Day prank.

I don't see it. Not at all. Kutcher is so not Steve that they might as well have picked Ton Hanks, or Chris Rock.

I mean, seriously... At least pick someone who you could think might be something even remotely like Steve in real life. Not Kutcher...

I hope this is an April Fools joke. Or did they pick him because of his stellar Nikon commercials?

Can't say that I am a fan of Kutcher, but I feel a strange connection to the guy since he was born the exact date as myself. Weird huh?

Steve Jobs should have been played by Will Smith. Wait a minute...

In all seriousness, it might be good. He does resemble him. It would be nice to see Ashton try his hand at a serious role.

Haven't seen The Butterfly Effect yet? He was serious in that one. People need to get the Punk'd/Michael Kelso image out of their head for a minute and be open-minded to this choice. I remember when people scoffed at Heath Ledger portraying The Joker. The guy from 10 Things I Hate About You. But he surprised all of us with that role and won an Oscar for it after his death. Not saying Kutcher will step up his game at that level. It is only an indie film. But like another poster mentioned, he might need a talented director and writer to push him to another level.

This might actually be good news in the sense that he won't be playing Jobs in the official movie.

Wat?

He fits the role of a goofy, comedic actor, not Steve Jobs!

+1 for that Noah Wyle guy.

He looks like Jobs to an extent, and did a great job with Steve's mannerisms in that particular movie.
Well, what about Will Smith? from Fresh Price of Bell Air to Independence Day to The Pursuit of Happyness.

I was interested. Was really interested.

That is until they mentioned Kutcher was in it, let alone staring as jobs.

I've seen a number of Kutcher movie's and tv shows. He has no range. The BEST thing I EVER saw him do was Dude Where's the Car. The next closest thing was That 70's Show. Why? Because these are the closest thing to his real personality and what he's best at. When it comes to acting he just can't do it right.

No interest with Kutcher.

Later this week, in a surprise announcement, Variety will report that none other than teen heartthrob Justin Bieber will play the role of Bill Gates.

I really don't know if it would work, but for some reason, Tom Cruise crossed my mind for Steve Jobs. Both have that uber-intensity and manic-ness about them. I have a feeling Jobs is about 6 inches taller, though.

Well there are a few more than 365 members on MacRumors, so there was a pretty good chance someone was born on the same day.

As for me, I'm one day off sharing my birthday with Steve Jobs himself. I guess that's why I'm a cranky perfectionist who ISN'T very successful in business.
