According to the rumors, teen singer Justin Bieber is gearing up to put on his trucker hat to fill the void that Ashton Kutcher left on MTV’s show, Punk’d.
Vulture says that MTV has got their eyes on Justin for the hosting position for the soon-to-be revamped show:
Kutcher isn’t entirely relinquishing the celebrity practical-joke franchise he birthed back in 2003: He’ll remain as an executive producer of the new series via his Katalyst Entertainment. But if a deal can be worked out, the on-air baby face of the new show will be none other than Biebs. If Kutcher’s past history with Punk’d is any indication, Bieber will likely appear in a few early episodes as a participant in the pranks, then gradually revert to mostly introducing segments. While Kutcher was famous during the original Punk’d era (he was starring on That 70s Show), the actor was nowhere near as famous (or busy) as Bieber, giving him more time to pull punks on his peers.
