Four more actors have been added to the cast of “Jobs,” the new biopic about the late Steve Jobs, the computer designer and inventor who was co-founder, chairman, and chief executive ofApple Inc.

Joining Ashton Kutcher, who is starring as Jobs, are Ron Eldard (“Super 8”) as Apple designer Ron Holt; John Getz (“The Social Network”) as Jobs' adoptive father Paul Jobs; Lesley Ann Warren (“Victor/Victoria”) as his adoptive mother; and James Woods (“Salvador,” “Nixon”) as former Reed College Dean of Students Jack Dudman (Jobs dropped out of Reed).

Jobs died in October of complications related to pancreatic cancer. He was 56.

Already announced for the film, which began shooting in Los Angeles and Los Altos this month, are Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, Matthew Modine and Dermot Mulroney. Joshua Michael Stern (“Swing Vote”) is directing from a script by Matt Whiteley. The film is scheduled for a winter release.

"Jobs" isn't the only project in the works about the Apple guru. In May, Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin was tapped to write Sony Pictures' adaptation of the bestselling Walter Isaacson biography, "Steve Jobs."
