Pictures of Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs make the rounds
TMZ is reporting that Ashton Kutcher has donned the official Steve Jobs outfit of turtlenecks, jeans and sneakers as the actor prepares to play the late Apple co-founder in a new independent movie. The low budget flick is said to be titled Jobs: Get Involved and focuses on his early career from the founding of Apple through the Pixar and NeXT years. A leak revealed that Kutcher had been awarded the role on April 2nd, with filming set to begin this month now that Two and a Half Men is on hiatus for the summer.

Sony Pictures, which acquired the rights to Walter Isaacson's biography about Jobs, is said to also be interested in producing a movie about the executive. Sony is trying to get Aaron Sorkin, the man who created The West Wing and was a screenwriter for The Social Network to pen the script. As for the role of Steve Jobs in the Sony movie, the last we heard was that the role could be given to one of two ER alumni, George Clooney or Noah Wyle. Wyle has the advantage of having portrayed Jobs before in the made for T.V. "Pirates of Silicon Valley".
