Ashton Kutcher: King of the Hidden Camera


This April, the man who made "punk'd" part of the popular lexicon will unveil his latest hidden-camera adventure, called "The Real Wedding Crashers." Essentially a reality-show version of the hit movie, the six-episode series "will record improvisational actors who go undercover at real weddings," according to an NBC press release. Kutcher is executive producing under his Katalyst shingle.

I'll admit: This show could be morbidly entertaining, not to mention a nice counterpart that other crappy wedding show. But I can't help but find Ashton incredibly irritating, no matter how snappy a dresser he is. Now it seems he has yet another hidden-camera show in the works, too. For the details, read more

Katalyst also plans to produce a U.S. version of "Game Show in My Head," a British show where contestants tackle wacky stunts for a chance to win $1 million. Not surprisingly, there is also a candid-camera element to this pilot, which will be shot for CBS later this month. According to the March 4 Variety story:

CBS and the pilot's producers are keeping a tight lid on the show's content. A recent casting call for the show offered a few more hints, while asking for "everyday people who are ready for a little fun in extraordinary situations."

"Do you consider yourself a daredevil, a risk taker, a great salesman?" asks the casting sheet. "Can you talk an Eskimo into buying a block of ice? Sell a ketchup popsicle to a man in white gloves? Then you're ready to star in the new CBS prime time TV pilot."

I guess it's good that Kutcher realizes he's better behind the hidden camera than in front of a movie camera, and I can't blame the guy for wanting to ride the "Punk'd" wave. What do you guys think?
