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.
