On a recent visit to the Late Late Show With James Corden, Ashton Kutcher reminisced about his Punk’d day. While discussing the hit show, Ashton goes into detail about how he would elaborately punk singer Billie Eilish.
Kutcher said, “I was, like, thinking, if I did it, I would probably, like, go get, like, Billie Eilish or something and I would create, like, a bit and I would call it, like ‘Bad Guy.’ And the idea would be as, like, the CIA would show up at her house and be, like, ‘Listen, we need your help with an issue that we’re having. Have you ever heard of Mohammad bin Salaam?”
“And, like, then, like force her to put, like, a wire…being like, ‘His daughter’s a huge fan of yours. We need you to put this wiretap in his hotel room.’ And take her there and have the FBI or, like, the CIA person be, like, ‘I’ll be there and give you the signal when you’re clear to do it.’ And, like, literally, like, bring it. And the actor playing Mohammad bin Salaam be like, ‘What is this?’ And then all of a sudden the chase ensues and, like, it turns into, like, a full-length thing…To me, go big or go home, right?”
He also talks about the reboot and how he doesn’t see how it can be as big as it was when he was a part of it. “It’s like these small episodes, and I don’t quite understand how they’re gonna make it bigger than what it was. Because it’s like back in the day we got Beyonce and Justin Timberlake and all of these like big sharks. I don’t think you can get, like, ‘bigger stars,’ so you would kind of have to, like, do bigger pranks, right?” He also explains that he will not be part of the reboot.
