Ashton Kutcher believes he was 'meant to play Steve Jobs'

Ashton Kutcher is primed and ready to play the role of Steve Jobs in an upcoming independent movie. Demi Moore's former squeeze reckons he was born for the role.

Following the unlikely casting of Ashton Kutcher as late Apple CEO Steve Jobs in an upcoming biopic, the Two and a Half Men star already believes he's destined to play the technology visionary.

Kutcher, who recently split from wife Demi Moore, bounced back by landing the role of his life in 'Jobs' an independent film about the legendary pioneer.

Producer Mark Hulme told The Daily - ironically, the iPad-centric newspaper - the former That 70s Show actor is throwing himself into the role before shooting begins next month.

He said: "He believes the role was meant for him," and will "prove to the world that this is the right part for him.”

"He is already meeting with folks that knew Steve Jobs," Hulme added. "He’s working with professionals to get inside the voice. He’s letting his hair grow out. I understand he’s canceled all meetings and actually canceled all other projects."

Hulme says Kutcher's striking physical resemblance to the young and carefree Steve Jobs played a big part, but the producer reckons his status as a Twitter leader, with over 10 million followers, also helps him to identify with Jobs' achievements.

He said: “When he read the script, he loved it. He and the director (Joshua Michael Stern) met two days later and they could tell that this was the right direction.

“The physical resemblance is actually scary, but he himself connects with this man in a very significant way. Of course he’s a big techie. He has a personal affinity to what Steve Jobs accomplished.

“Ashton is a much more intense individual than a lot of his current roles represent. We are feeling convinced that he’s gonna nail this.”

Kutcher's casting raised eyebrows over the weekend, with many assuming it was an April Fools joke. Apparently not. It seems Ashton is for real. Dude, where's my iPad?
