|After some success in modeling, Kutcher had planned to move to Hollywood, but was asked to return to college by his mother. However, a month later, he was discovered in a bar in Iowa City, Iowa and cast as "Michael Kelso" in the television series That '70s Show, which became a success. He left the show (along with Topher Grace) before the last season to pursue other interests. Kutcher achieved some stardom and was cast in a series of film roles; although he auditioned but was not cast for the role of Danny Walker in Pearl Harbor (2001), he starred in a few financially successful comedic films, including Dude, Where's My Car? (2000), Just Married (2003) and Guess Who (2005). In addition, he appeared in the film Cheaper By The Dozen as Piper Perabo's boyfriend Hank, a self-obssessed actor who values his talents and good looks above his girlfriends' family, quite a contrast from the goofy yet well-intentioned funnymen he used to play. His 2004 film, The Butterfly Effect, was an unusually dramatic role for Kutcher as a conflicted young man, and it was also deemed a box office success.Kutcher recently filmed The Guardian, a thriller co-starring Kevin Costner, in which the two play United States Coast Guard rescue swimmers who are involved in a deadly race for their lives.
