“The Book of Mormon” star Josh Gad is in talks to play Apple co-founder Steve “Woz” Wozniak opposite Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs in Joshua Michael Stern’s indie film, “Jobs,” reports “Variety” (http://macte.ch/NPyPg).

Written by Matt Whiteley, the pic chronicles Steve Jobs “from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple, where he became one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time,” the article adds. Gad is making a deal to play Wozniak, who created the Apple I computer and co-created the Apple II computer in the mid-1970s. (Photo courtesy of “Variety.”)
