After finding fame on "That '70s Show," Ashton Kutcher set out on his first, high-profile big-screen venture with 'Dude, Where's My Car?' in 2000, and the handsome star demonstrated his comic charisma for the ET cameras.
"Today we're talking to Ashton Kutcher, who's working on his new project 'Dude, Where's My Car?' … What was your inspiration when you were considering this role?" the 22-year-old actor said in a silly accent.
Ashton also launched into a tale about losing his own car a few times.
"I've had that happen, where you walk out and it's like you're sure your car was there and now it's not there," he said just three years before he'd start punking people on "Punk'd." "Actually, we're shooting on the Universal Lot and everyone's been playing the 'Dude, Where's My Car?' game because we walk into this giant parking ramp … and you have to walk around for a half an hour trying to find your car."
"Hopefully if we are doing in our job, [the audience] is going to believe that [our characters] are two real guys living in this world with all these crazy stuff going on, so it's really kind of amazing how all the different elements of comedy and different kinds of comedy are combined into one in the movie," he concluded about his upcoming comedy. "I hope that people will recognize that and respond to it."
