Should Ashton Kutcher Play Steve Jobs?

Stocks in this article: AAPL CBS

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) - Apple (AAPL) makes enough headlines on its own, but now the company is set to get another publicity boost, this time courtesy of Ashton Kutcher.

Kutcher, the star of CBS's (CBS) Two and a Half Men, is slated to play the iconic Apple co-founder in an indie film "Jobs", according to Variety.

The film, being developed off a script by Matt Whiteley, will portray Jobs' life from his early days as a young hippie to becoming a co-founder of Apple. Joshua Michael Stern is attached to direct the pic.

Kutcher had been previously mentioned as playing the iconic entrepreneur when talks of a movie first started after his death.

The model-turned actor has had more than his fair share of publicity recently, most notably for his relationship with Demi Moore. He also took over from Hollywood bad-boy Charlie Sheen in Two and a Half Men.

TheStreet wants to know what you think. Do you think Kutcher is a good choice to play Jobs? Let us know what you think. Results of the poll will be up Thursday morning.

Apple shares are higher in Monday trading, up 2.35% to $613.63.

Ashton Kutcher was cast to play Steve Jobs in an indie film. Do you think this was the right choice?

Yes. Ashton Kutcher looks a lot like a younger Steve Jobs and I would go see the movie with him as the star.
No. Ashton Kutcher will detract from the role. It should've been an unknown actor.
Whoever the actor is doesn't matter to me.
