Iowa’s Own Ashton Kutcher Will Join ‘That 70’s Show’ Reboot on Netflix
HELLO WISCONSIN (and Iowa)!!!
That '70s Show is getting its second reboot ever, and this time, the original cast is planning on making special appearances throughout its first season. As shared by Vulture, "Eric Forman (Topher Grace), Donna Pinciotti (Laura Prepon), Jackie Burkhart (Mila Kunis), Michael Kelso (Ashton Kutcher), and Fez (Wilmer Valderrama) are all alright and coming back for the That ’70s Show reboot, That ’90s Show."
The storyline will follow Eric and Donna's daughter, Leia, as she visits her grandparents Red and Kitty for the summer. It will once again take place in the fictional Green Bay suburb, Point Place, where Leia will make friends of her own.
Netflix has ordered 10 episodes of the show, according to Daily Mail.
Returning as Kelso, Kutcher will once again play the role that earned him his big break in Hollywood. In a feature with Rolling Stone, the Iowa native detailed how he got the role with little-to-no prior acting experience, adding how he charmed the casting crew and how he continued to play the big, good-looking, dumb guy:
The key is not to play stupid. You can feel for a naive person because it’s not his fault, but you have no sympathy for a stupid person.
Since the show came to an end in 2006, Kutcher has starred in other major roles in TV shows like Punk'd, Two and a Half Men, and The Ranch, which is also produced on Netflix.
His high-profile roles on the big screen have included movies like Dude, Where's My Car?, A Lot Like Love, What Happens in Vegas, Jobs, The Butterfly Effect, The Guardian, No Strings Attached, and more.
