ashton kutcher tca getty Steve Wozniak 'glad' Ashton Kutcher will play Steve Jobs in filmThe selection of Ashton Kutcher to play Steve Jobs in a biopic about the late Apple CEO has left many scratching their heads. But one person who is completely in agreement with the choice is someone who knows more than most about Jobs, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.

In a statement, Wozniak says of Kutcher, “I’m glad that he’s onboard. I think he’ll put a lot into it and that he cares about this particular subject.”

Wozniak adds, “The fear that many might have is that Ashton was selected because he’s ‘hot’ right now. But I feel that his selection was done in the most professional manner.”

The movie “Jobs” will follow the iconic CEO from his days as a wayward hippie to running one of the most powerful and influential computer companies in the world. It’s slated to begin filming in May 2012.
