Funny or Die, the comedy Web site, said over the weekend that it had made its own Jobs movie — “iSteve” — and planned to unveil it online on April 15. A biopic poking fun at biopics, “iSteve” stars Justin Long (“New Girl,” “DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story”) in the title role. At 60 to 75 minutes, the movie is the longest project to date for Funny or Die, which generally features bite-sized videos.

The King of Twitter is now the King of Apple, as “Two and a Half Men” star Ashton Kutcher is attached to play Steve Jobs in the indie pic “Jobs,” which Joshua Michael Stern (“Swing Vote”) will direct from a script by Matt Whiteley.
Update: the Variety writer’s Twitter confirms this isn’t a joke. Also, there’s this…
8:08 - Oh hey Steve Jobs. Didn’t expect to see you in this In Memoriam. I usually forget about the whole Pixar thing. But we still miss you. Also, the other day I forgot my iPod Shuffle in my pants and washed and dried it… and it still works. Thanks.
