LOST's Evangeline Lilly To Get Punk'd!
MTV is kicking off the eighth and (they claim) the final season of Hollywood's biggest prankster Ashton Kutcher's candid camera show "Punk'd" including an appearance of the LOST babe Evangeline Lilly.
The unsuspecting victims will also include Hilary Swank, Magic Johnson and Nelly Furtado MTV said on Monday.
In December 2003, following the show's second cycle, executive producer Ashton Kutcher said he was pulling the plug.
Speculation immediately arose that it was a ploy to lower the guard of celebrity targets. "Punk'd" did indeed return in April 2004.
MTV Networks Music Group entertainment president Brian Graden said Monday that the show is officially finished this time, but that there might be future collaborations with Kutcher on other projects.
MTV plans to debut the entire final season - all eight episodes - back-to-back in a "Sneak Peek Marathon" starting at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 7. The series then premieres at 9 p.m. April 10 as part of a new Tuesday night block.
Evangeline Lilly is pictured above in a recent photo shoot for the cover page of last week's special issue of TV Guide Magazine in which she was named TV's sexiest female star. Patrick Dempsey won the male title.
