Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are together again, at last, in the new Annie remake. In a manner of speaking.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis were paired together in That 70’s Show long before they were a real-life couple. Kutcher went on to spend years with Demi Moore, but eventually found his way to Kunis for real.
And now they are finally back on screen together. But you have to kind of watch for it.
The new Annie features several celebrities in cameos, including new parents Kunis and Kutcher. The main characters are played by Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhané Wallis’ as Will Stacks and Annie, of course. Jamie Foxx’s character is a parallel to the classic Daddy Warbucks character from previous incarnations of the Annie story.
According to the New York Daily News, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are in the film, as well, but tucked a bit deeper. They are actually in a film within the film.
The Annie film includes a scene where Will Stacks and his new orphan friend Annie go to a movie premiere event for a film called Moonquake Lake. Kunis and Kutcher are leads in the fictional Moonquake Lake film. But Kunis and Kutcher are also present in character at the premiere event attended by Annie and Will Stacks.
IMDb posts Kunis’ role as “Andrea Alvin,” and Kutcher is named “Simon Goodspeed.” There are also cameo appearances by singer Rihanna within the Moonquake Lake film-within-a-film. Actor Michael J. Fox plays himself in an homage to his character on Spin City, campaigning for the mayor of New York City.
In the trailer below, you can see Kunis and Kutcher on the Moonquake Lake movie poster if you pause at 1:21 and again at 1:22.
