In the last few years, there has been a huge retro come-back, so the coming of 'That 70's Show' was almost inevitable. 'That 70's Show' is a funny look back on one very crazy decade. One of the stars of the show is Ashton Kutcher who plays the likeable yet dopey Michael Kelso.
Though he is still young, acting wasn't his first choice of a career.
In 1997, he was studying biochemical engineering when a modelling agent discovered him. He was noticed in a restaurant and it was suggested to him that he enter a modelling contest in Iowa.
Ashton, not surprisingly won the competition and won a trip to New York to compete in an International Model and Talent Agency competition.
He was quickly snapped up by an exclusive agency and he spent almost a year jet setting around the world doing photo shoots for some very hot companies, including Versace and Calvin Klein.
In 1998, he decided to make a change of career and move into TV. He was very lucky in that one of the first shows he tried out for was 'That 70's Show.'
After his charming performance in 'That 70's Show', he quickly jumped onto the big screen with movies like 'Down to You', 'Dude Where's My Car', 'Reindeer Games' and the modern western 'Texas Rangers', playing along ide names such as Ben Affleck and James Van Der Beek.
Although Ashton is only 23 years old, he has already managed to make a name for himself in the areas of print, television and film. Clearly, we will be seeing a lot more of him in the future.
