The announcement that Two and a Half Men star Ashton Kutcher is to play Steve Jobs in an upcoming biopic film has been met with heavy criticism from some members of the Apple community. However Mark Hulme, the producer of the film, claimed in an interview with The Daily that Kutcher believes the role was ‘meant for him’.
“He is already meeting with folks that knew Steve Jobs. 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,” producer Mark Hulme, whose newly formed Five Star Feature Films is the sole investor behind “Jobs,” told Flash.
“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,” Hulme added. “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.”
