Ashton Kutcher wants Justin Bieber for Punk’d
It’s been a few years since Ashton Kutcher went around playing practical jokes on other celebrities and he feels that it’s time to put the MTV show, Punk’d, back in action, although he won’t be hosting the show this time around, according to Cambio.
The rumors about bringing Punk’d back have been floating around for a few months but they’ve had some weight added to them recently. While talking with Jay Leno on Tuesday’s The Tonight Show, Ashton said, “I really can’t talk about it because everything’s sort of in process. It’s a possibility that it could be happening. I will not be hosting the show in the future. People were afraid I was going to punk them wherever I went and I’m starting to get invited to stuff again and it’s actually a good thing. I’ll be involved in some capacity if we do it and there could be a new host but I can’t say a whole lot.”
Why singing sensation Justin Bieber for the new version of the show? Ashton explains, “He’s a nice kid and he’s a funny kid – and people don’t know he’s a funny kid yet… and he’s sneaky. And I like sneaky people.”
Punk’d ran from 2003 to 2007, becoming a big hit as viewers tuned in to watch Kutcher play practical jokes on unsuspecting celebrities and there’s no doubt it would it would be a success again if Ashton follows through with bringing the show back through his Katalyst Entertainment production company, but would the Biebster actually be the ideal host?
