Justin Bieber to Host MTV's 'Punk'd'?
Look! Bieber already has the trucker hat!
MTV's got it right; the only thing that can bring that network back to life is a TV show with Justin Bieber in it, and reviving Ashton Kutcher's Punk'd from the dead with Bieber hosting it would be an awesome coup for the network.
It's been three years since Kutcher was on air with Punk'd, and the network always wanted to revive the show, according to NY Magazine. If all the details are worked out, Bieber will participate in a few of the pranks then mostly introduce the show's segments. Kutcher will remain as an executive producer of the new series via his Katalyst Entertainment.
The show was reportedly cancelled because the gags got lamer and they couldn't prank interesting celebrities anymore; on the Internet's one hot minute, there could be a YouTube celebrity on air every week!
