Hey, remember Punk'd, MTV's hidden-camera show where Ashton Kutcher played pranks on celebrities and taped the weird things they did? It was the springboard to successful comedian and actor Dax Shepard's career! Now you remember.

Well, the crew over at Vulture is reporting today that MTV is reviving the Punk'd brand and the new host is going to be -- OMG -- Bieber!


Via Vulture

"Multiple industry insiders tell Vulture that the tween singer has been all but officially tapped as the host of a revival of Ashton Kutcher's Punk'd for the network, assuming all details can be worked out. Kutcher isn't entirely relinquishing the celebrity practical-joke franchise he birthed back in 2003: He'll remain as an executive producer of the new series via his Katalyst Entertainment." 

Hell yeah. First CSI, now Punk'd. Soon: The silver screen.
