    From replacing one of TV's most infamous Men to portraying one of the business world's most famous men, Ashton Kutcher can seemingly do it all!

    The Two and a Half Men star is set to play Steve Jobs in an indie biopic titled Jobs, Kutcher's rep confirms to E! News. And while the actor is well-known for his Twitter activity, no one can deny that he also bears an uncanny resemblance to the late Apple founder, too. 

    So what is the film about? And does this mean Kutcher is dunzo with Two and a Half Men

    The film will follow Jobs on his journey from "wayward hippie" to cofounder of Apple and one of the most respected and powerful entrepreneurs in the business and technological world. Jobs passed away last October. 

    The film will be based on the best-selling, authorized bio of Jobs by Walter Isaacson. 

    While he has yet to sign a deal for another season, sources tell E! that Kutcher will most likely return to Two and a Half Men for another year. Kutcher would film Jobs while on hiatus from the CBS comedy in May.
