Birthday: 02/07/1978
Place of Birth: Cedar Rapids, Iowa
Education: University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa, biochemical engineering

 

Found in a small diner in Iowa City, Ashton Kutcher was talked into entering a modeling challenge that won him a trip to New York, a move that would start his career. Once he arrived in New York, the tall, brown haired Kutcher was hired by an agency and modeled in runway shows in Milan Italy and Paris France, and was headlined in print advertisement and commercials for Calvin Klein Jeans. He made his film entrance in "Distance", a NYU student creation, and appeared in a national Pizza Hut TV spot. 

Just one year after arriving in NYC from the small farm town of Homestead, Iowa, the young actor could be seen as a regular cast member on Fox's ensemble comedy "That '70's Show" (1998-2002), a part he landed after impressing producers with his bright enthusiasm. Unlike his attractive but uneducated, character of Michael Kelso, he studied biochemical engineering at the University of Iowa, working as a warehouse cleaner in the General Mills factory in Cedar Rapids to fund his education. Kutcher made the transition to the movie screen with a bit part in "Coming Soon" (1999), starring Gaby Hoffman and Mia Farrow, followed by a part in the stupid, but funny comedy "Dude, Where's My Car" (2000), working along side Sean William Scott, a film that has gone on to enjoy something of a teen-cult following. He also had a role in the disastrous western "Texas Rangers" (2001).


In 2003, The actor teamed up with Brittany Murphy for the feature movie "Just Married." Ashton and Murphy, who were amorously linked during marketing for the film, played a newlywed couple in the exceedingly jagged romantic comedy. That film, which launched the same time as the debut of the his personally produced and directed MTV hidden camera show "Punk'd" (MTV, 2003-2004), which headlined the celebrity and an ensemble of prank pulling friends, carried out extreme hoaxes on his young Hollywood pals, helped to add fire to his superstar status and the media was swiftly following his every move, especially after he embarked on a very high-profile romance with actress Demi Moore, 15 years his senior. 

His next 2003 film was "My Boss' Daughter," a movie shot two years earlier and pulled from the shelf for release after Kutcher's rise. In the so-so comedy, he plays a young business man who hopes to get points with his boss by house sitting for him, then becomes romantically entwined with his sexpot daughter (Tara Reid). Just as he announced he was pulling the plug on the young show "Punk'd", partially to work on developing a new MTV series and in part to steer clear of irritating his Hollywood friends, he had an entertainingly successful un-credited cameo in the Steve Martin, Bonnie Hunt do-over of "Cheaper By the Dozen" (2003) as their daughter Piper Perabo's useless boyfriend, but Ashton made a mark in the dramatic, and critically un-liked "The Butterfly Effect" (2004) playing a university undergraduate whose disturbed childhood memories send him on a time bending voyage in an effort to advance his friends' lives.

"Punk'd" returned with a new round of victims in 2005 and Ashton signed for an added season of "That 70s Show" to see the series through to the end, even as his film career continued to prosper. He partnered with Bernie Mac for "Guess Who?" (2005), a expansive comedy reversal of "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?" with Mac as a strict black father who does not approve of his daughter's engagement to his white silliness. Within weeks of the release, he delivered his most adult and appealing piece yet in the romantic comedy "A Lot Like Love" (2005), in which he plays an intense young man with ruthless plans for his life, but finds himself sidetracked every few years by his encounter with a jittery, romantically challenged would-be actress (Amanda Peet) who, though their timing always seems to be off, just might be his soul mate.

In the meantime on television, as executive producer, he launched another successful unscripted show on The WB: "Beauty and the Geek" (2005 - ) mismatched seven bright but socially inept men with seven stunning but "academically challenged" women, and put them through various competitions in hopes of ending up with a couple that was both smart and attractive. He ended his hectic year by marrying Demi Moore in September 2005 in a conventional Kabbalah service.

Encouraged by his own romance, shortly after the wedding it was announced he would produce the sitcom "30 Year Old Grandpa" for Fox, about a young man who marries an older woman and becomes stepfather to her children who are the same age as him. He stopped the much publicized feud between himself and Moore's ex-husband Bruce Willis by having Willis appear on "That 70's Show." He next partnered with director Andrew Davis for the action drama "The Guardian" (2006) playing a insubordinate Coast Guard member who has to deal with a renowned rescue swimmer (Kevin Costner).


He next starred along side Cameron Diaz in the 2008 release of "What Happens In Vegas, Set in Las Vegas", the story revolves around two people who discover they've gotten married following a night of debauchery. Next was the comedy-drama "Personal Effects" (2008) Michelle Pfieffer and Kathy Bates, a dramatic love story sees him as a young man who arrives in a town during his attempt to seek vengeance for the murder of his sister. Here he unexpectedly gets sidetracked by a beautiful older woman with wounds very similar to his own. Through this bond, an unlikely and beautiful romance then begins to bloom.

Kutcher's latest production is the comedy "Spread" (2009) starring Anne Heche, a sex comedy centered on a serial womanizer and his jilted lover. He has also been hailed as one of the celebrities who help jumpstart the popular "Twitter" internet service.

In 2011, after negotiations with CBS, Warner Brothers, and executive producer Chuck Lorre, Kutcher joined the wildly popular sitcom “Two and a Half Men” replacing actor Charlie Sheen after he was fired from the show.
