Ashton Kutcher at Time 100 Gala

For Sidey’s Weekend Theme.

I read a rumour that Ashton Kutcher is to play Steve Jobs in a new biopic. 

Now that’s odd.

    I am cracking up laughing!

    I do wish these chaps would either grow a proper beard or shave: these two just look dirty! I’m grouchy this morning.

    Please say it isn’t true!

    I think that he would play young Jobs, when he had hair and was a “free spirit” wandering around in India and I think China. I don’t know how good it will be, I am over the Jobs worship, he left a legacy that is true, but it isn’t all bright and pretty.

    Who makes these casting choices?


    • Tilly Bud April 23, 2012 at 15:39 #

      The money men, would be my guess 🙂


      • zannyro April 23, 2012 at 15:50 #

        Yep,,they may not fit the part, but they’re controversial..so let the money flow.

    Good entry, Tilly. 😉

    Aaaaaarrrrrrrrrggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! The only thing this guy ever did was That 70s Show, and that was because he played an idiot. Typecasting?


    • Tilly Bud April 23, 2012 at 15:48 #

      Ouch! What about his movies and Two and a Half Men and Punk’d?

      Not a fan, I take it?

      Actually, neither am I, but I seem to know an awful lot about him…creepy.


      • Pseu April 23, 2012 at 16:07 #

        is he famous? I didn’t recognise him…


        • Tilly Bud April 27, 2012 at 09:40 #

          Yes, tv and movies, but mostly for being married to Demi Moore, despite their age difference. And then dumping her.

            Maybe I don’t read the right stuff. That has all completely passed me by.
            Last time I looked at a Hello magazine (or similar, it was at the hairdressers and I had forgotten my book) I didn’t recognise most people in there….


            • Tilly Bud April 27, 2012 at 18:58 #

              Hello!???! Wash your mouth out with soap! I never look at that type of mag.

              All my knowledge comes from the Virgin Media homepage when I access the internet 🙂


              • Pseu April 27, 2012 at 19:53 #

                that’s Virgin on the ridiculous


            • Tilly Bud April 29, 2012 at 10:22 #

              Me either. Not that I ever look at that sort of publication, of course…


      • judithatwood April 23, 2012 at 16:24 #

        I don’t watch either of those shows — although I have once or twice. Awful. His movies are okay, but nowhere near what I would call good. And he just reminds me too much of Robert Pattinson — not by looks, but because he always has one expression stapled on his face. I have to say, though, that his choices in shows and movies have been so dismal that, if this is a good movie, he may do far better than he has. No, not a fan. 😎

    I love the randomness of your mind!


    • Tilly Bud April 27, 2012 at 09:43 #

      Hey, it works for me 😀

      Have to say – this is one of my favourite comments ever. Have a Malteser.


      • nailingjellotoatree May 1, 2012 at 14:22 #

        Yay! I finally have a Malteser. Can I name it?


  11. gigihawaii April 23, 2012 at 17:44 #

    That would be a mismatch! Steve Jobs was not a buffoon! Lol.


  12. robincoyle April 23, 2012 at 18:39 #

    Really? What was the casting director smoking?

    Has Hollywood run try on screenplays … if they have to make a film about Steve Jobs.


  15. SchmidleysScribbling April 23, 2012 at 19:54 #

    It would make sense. Jobs was very handsome before he got sick and old. Looked a lot like Kutcher too. Dianne


  16. I HAVE A VOICE April 23, 2012 at 22:14 #

    This is too funny!


  17. poetart April 23, 2012 at 22:59 #

    Who’s playing Mr Jobs in the latter half of the movie then?


  18. Palestine Rose April 27, 2012 at 12:30 #

    I can totally see why. The smile and nose look the same.
    Good choice.
    I’m a mac junkie so it’s fun to see that a movie is going to be made about Steve.
    When the phone support is lousy at mac, (I have apple care warranty), all I have to say is: “If Steve Jobs was still alive, I would not be getting such lousy service”, and boom, I get transferred to a great supervisor! 😉


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
