Ashton Kutcher Punk'd On Superman Audition

Ashton Kutcher, Man of Steel?

In a casting proposal nearly as plausible as Kim Kardashian playing Mother Teresa, Ashton Kutcher was once asked to audition for the role of Superman.

Hey, while we’re at it, let’s see if Justin Bieber is available for the reboot of “The Incredible Hulk.”

During a press junket for “The Killers,” Kutcher’s latest box-office bomb, the lanky, goofy actor revealed that he once donned the iconic suit to do a screen test for “Superman Returns.” The project went on to be directed by Bryan Singer, but at the time was under the supervision of Brett Ratner.

“I wore the Superman suit. I did a screen test in the Superman suit,” said Kutcher. “There is (footage of my audition out there) with Keri Russell, who was reading Lois (Lane). There’s me in a Clark Kent outfit, and then there’s me in a Superman outfit.”

Even Kutcher himself admits the part “did not feel right....I was like a rail with fake muscles.”

In the interview, he goes on to claim that he could however play the role of He-Man. Presumably to prove it, Kutcher then launches into a deep-voiced, impromptu impersonation of the comic book character.


What comic book character could Ashton Kutcher play?

    How many victims has Ashton Krutcher made on the show "Punked"? Got a little taste of his own medicine, I'm afraid. Sauce for the goose. He might make a great Captain America action hero?

    lol I just imagined him in that spandex suit and cape and it cracks me up lol he's too funny to play that role.
  • HPManiac123 2010/06/21 22:47:29
    I would like to see him in a superhero movie, but I don't think a muscle-bound superhero is the best idea. Maybe someone whose abilities are more for speed then strength or they are a pranksters. I'm not sure who, I'm not really interested in reading comics.

    Yeah, Jughead. Heard him railing against drilling in the gulf. But the dumb ass drives a supersized gas guzzling SUV with a 75 gallon gas tank. How does he figure to fill it up? Go back to a 70's show remake -dumbass.
