Ashton Kutcher loves having friends again, so much so that the ‘That ’70s Show’ actor will likely never return to his hit series ‘Punk’d.’
“For a long time I was going out and nobody wanted to hang around,” the entrepreneur told Extra! Monday when asked to reboot the MTV show.
It’s probably because every time people saw Kutcher, they thought they were kinda filmed for the show.
“They were like, ‘I’m not messing with him,'” Kutcher said with a smile. “It’s good to have friends.”
“Punk’d” was briefly rebooted in 2019 for the short-lived Quibi streaming service, though Kutcher made it clear he was not associated with the show.
“I have nothing to do with the new situation of the punks. I hope they get it right,” the 44-year-old said on Twitter at the time.
There’s one reboot Kutcher is ready to take on: Netflix’s new spin-off of “That ’70s Show.”
Kutcher and his wife, Mila Kunis, will both appear in the new series, aptly titled “That ’90s Show.” The two actors, who met on the show, said they were “considering” coming back before they fully joined.
“We thought, ‘Look, we’re only in the position we’re in because of this show, so let’s go back and do this,'” he told Variety of the series. which launched the couple’s career. “We just got back and had fun for a week. It was so random and fun.
Kutcher added that he was “really nostalgic to be back on set” as most of the main cast are returning.
Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Wilmer Valderrama, Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith will all make appearances on the show.
Danny Masterson will not be returning, as the actor has been charged with multiple sexual assault counts and is currently awaiting trial on three separate counts of rape.
