Ashton Kutcher Knows ‘Nothing’ About The New Season of ‘Punk’d’ [AUDIO]
Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer called into “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Tuesday to talk about the new season of “Two and a Half Men,” whether or not Jon thinks he will win the Emmy this year and what else Ashton is up to these days.
We know Ashton is busy with his new gig on “Two and a Half Men,” but one job is not enough for this guy. The original celebrity prankster is also serving as executive producer on the new version of “Punk’d,” the show he originally created back in 2003. Rumor has it that Justin Bieber pranks Taylor Swift in the first episode.
“I don’t know anything about that. I have no idea what is going on there. That Bieber kid is great,” Ashton says. “I’ve been so diligently working on my new television sitcom “Two and a Half Men” that I have had time to do absolutely nothing else and you know that I am not a good multitasker.” Clearly Ahston is sworn to secrecy.
We will have to wait until September 19th to see Ashton in action on “Two and a Half Men,” but Ashton recalls telling a friend that he would take the job in a heartbeat if it was offered to him.
“I was on a fishing trip with my dad and I got a phone call. It was my friend saying ‘Were you serious when you said that, because the rumor has it that they might offer it to you.’ Then I had to take a moment and think about what that meant to my whole life,” Ashton said. “I took a couple days with it and decided what the heck.”
Ashton tells us that Charlie Sheen has given him his good graces, “Charlie tweeted me. He tweeted me saying ‘They got the right man for the job. Good luck Ashton, I think you are going to be great.”
Jon who is also great on the show, has been nominated for an Emmy for his role as Alan Harper a total of six times and won the honor in 2009. With the Emmy Awards coming up this weekend Jon weighed in on the his contenders this year.
“I’ve lost way more than I’ve won and unfortunately the people in the category are really great. Which I was really hoping for a weak line-up this year, but sadly they let me down. I am against Ed O’Neil, I’m sorry I don’t ever want to win anything against Ed O’Neil.”
The season premiere of “Two and a Half Men” airs September 19th on CBS at 9/8c.
