It was inevitable that a biopic on Steve Jobs would be made at some point within a year or two after his passing. Now producer Mark Hulme is speaking out about casting Ashton Kutcher in the lead role and more information on what part of Jobs' life the movie will focus on.
Fear not, 'Two and a Half Men' fans. Where one year ago it seemed the long-running CBS sitcom was desperate to put a lead actor in place after Charlie Sheen's famous departure, the current incarnation of Chuck Lorre's prize-winning sitcom will soon secure its future for a historic tenth, and by no means final season.
You're all familiar with 'Two and a Half Men,' the head-scratchingly popular show that used to star Charlie Sheen, abuser of women, and now stars Ashton Kutcher, abuser of fame.

Following the death of Steve Jobs, there was much mourning and the entire online world joined together for the digital eulogy to end all digital eulogies. Of course, the moment that was all over, deals were made, hands were shaken and discussions began regarding a film about Jobs' life.
