We wouldn't have ever guessed but turns out Robin Williams is the man to thank/blame for Ashton Kutcher's return to television!!
Ashton always remembered a moment when Robin visited the set of That 70s Show and overheard him say to Kurtwood Smith "Man, I just wish I could go back and do a sitcom again."
I never forgot hearing that and when I had this opportunity, I was like, 'This is unbelievable'. I think the best thing for me, other than the amazing job and great company of these people and actually being able to act a lot, is it's really fun.
When you do a feature, it's a couple of months and generally most of the time you spend waiting for lighting set-ups. And we rehearse every day and we get to be on a stage every day and perform and work on our craft and actually exercise those muscles and that craft.
For me, I really love doing that and I really love performing and trying to find nuance in the character, trying to find different ways to express something and kind of just optimising the scene. Being able to do that and work on that craft every day is really fulfilling.
So everyone take note!! Ashton seemingly prefers tv acting to film acting!!
We guess that means we won't be seeing him in anymore star-studded rom-coms for a while… aww…
