When asked during his interview on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" if he was bringing back the "Punk'd" franchise with Justin Bieber as host, Ashton Kutcher tried hard not to reveal too much in his answers.

"I really can't talk about it because everything's sort of in process," Kutcher told Leno during his appearance on January 18. "It's a possibility that it could be happening. I can say now, I will not be hosting the show in the future."

The original run of "Punk'd" aired on MTV and lasted from 2003 to 2007 and involved celebrities like Justin Timberlake, Beyonce Knowles and Zach Braff.

"People were afraid I was going to punk them wherever I went and I'm starting to get invited to stuff again and it's actually a good thing," he added. "I'll be involved in some capacity if we do it and there could be a new host but I can't say a whole lot."

As for Justin Bieber, Kutcher says, "He's a nice kid and he's a funny kid. People don't know he's a funny kid yet... and he's sneaky. And I like sneaky people."
