Ashton Kutcher gets a bad rap sometimes.
When you heard he was slated to play Steve Jobs in the new movie about the legendary Apple creator, did you groan a little? Some of us did. After all, some of Kutcher’s most famous roles are playing the airheaded Michael Kelso on That ‘70s Show and the merry prankster on MTV’s Punk’d.
