Readers surveyed by TheStreet, though, are not in favor of the idea.
More than 60% of TheStreet's readers, however, see this as a poor choice.Some 61.7% of respondents to TheStreet's recent poll on this topic said that Kutcher will detract from the role, adding that the part should have gone to an unknown actor. Almost a quarter of respondents said that Kutcher would be a good choice to play Jobs, and that they would go see the movie. Perhaps a shot at Kutcher's box office draw, 14.36% of those surveyed said they would go see the movie regardless of the actor picked to play the legendary entrepreneur. Jobs died in October 2011 after a lengthy battle with pancreatic cancer. In addition to the indie film, Sony (SNE) is currently developing a script based off Walter Isaacson's biography of Jobs, simply entitled "Steve Jobs", according to Variety. Shares of Apple are higher in Thursday trading, up 1.37% to $632.87. Interested in more on AAPL? See TheStreet Ratings' report card for this stock. Check out our new tech blog, Tech Trends.
