Rumor Mill: Justin Bieber gets 'Punk'd'

By Liz Kelly

Justin Bieber, ready to fill Ashton Kutcher's shoes? (AP)

Maybe all that walking into glass doors and getting beaned with water bottles was Justin Bieber's way of telegraphing to MTV execs that not only is he a hit with the kids, as they say, but capable of spontaneity, physical humor and mayhem that stops just short of "Jackass" level hijinks.

If so, job well done. New York magazine's Vulture blog is reporting that "multiple industry insiders" claim the Bieb has been tapped to take over Ashton Kutcher's role in a "Punk'd" reboot. Kutcher will remain as executive producer, doubtless to lend guidance to Bieber in the art of totally staged tomfoolery.
