|The movie about Steve Jobs' life already is in the works. Who could play him?|
Noah WyleWyle already played Jobs in the TNT television movie Pirates of Silicon Valley. The movie came out in 1999, and Jobs liked it so much that he actually asked Wyle to appear as Jobs at the 1999 MacWorld conference in New York. Jobs was very complimentary of Wyle in the book, and Jobs thought the actor did an excellent portrayal of him. Pirates of Silicon Valley was nominated for an Emmy for its depiction of Apple and Microsoft ( MSFT) and the start of the personal computing revolution in the 1970s and 1980s.
Ashton Kutcher, Stanley TucciSince Jobs was a very complicated character, with many quirks and intricacies, it may make sense for multiple actors to handle the role of the iconic CEO. Jobs' looks changed from when he was young, as he aged, and finally before he died. Ashton Kutcher, of That '70's Show, Two and a Half Men and Dude Where's My Car? fame, bears a striking resemblance to a younger Jobs. Not only does Kutcher look like him, Kutcher and Jobs have similar backgrounds. Kutcher has become a serial tech investor, investing in hot startups such as Airbnb, Foursquare, Quora and Blekko. When Jobs was fired from Apple in 1985, he used his newfound wealth to buy the company that eventually became Pixar, and also started NeXT Computer, which Apple purchased to bring Jobs back to the company. An older version of Jobs could be played by Stanley Tucci, who resembles Jobs in his older years. Tucci has appeared in movies such as The Lovely Bones, The Devil Wears Prada and The Terminal.
