After reports surfaced this week that Ashton Kutcher will play the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in the upcoming indie film “Jobs,” one of Apple’s other co-founders offered his opinion on the casting, TMZ.com reports.
According to Steve Wozniak, the selection of Kutcher is right on target. "The fear that many might have is that Ashton was selected because he’s ‘hot’ right now,” Wozniak told TMZ. “But I feel that his selection was done in the most professional manner. And I’m glad that he’s onboard. I think he’ll put a lot into it and that he cares about this particular subject."
The movie is set to start filming next month.
Wozniak also said it’s too bad Jobs isn’t around to help out with the film. “His opinions and guidance as to the story and film crew and cast would have been invaluable,” Wozniak said.
