Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are in the new Annie remake. Kinda, sorta.
The new Annie, which stars Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhané Wallis’ as Will Stacks and Annie, respectively, features several celebrities in cameos, including new parents Kunis and Kutcher. Foxx’s character is a parallel to the classic Daddy Warbucks character from previous incarnations of the Annie story.
Michael J. Fox plays himself in the film, in a scene in which he endorses the fictional New York City mayor. This scene no doubt hearkens back to Fox’s role in ABC’s “Spin City” sitcom as Mike Flaherty, the Deputy Mayor of New York. Fox played that role for the first four seasons of the show with Barry Bostwick as the Mayor of New York.
According to the New York Daily News, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are tucked a bit deeper into the film. They are actually in a film within the film.
The Annie film includes as scene where Stacks and Annie go to a premiere event for a movie called Moonquake Lake. Kunis and Kutcher are leads in that film. In a Moonquake Lake scene, the two are confronted by pop star Rihanna playing a villain covered in blue makeup. But Kunis and Kutcher are also present in character at the premiere event.
IMDb lists Kunis role as “Andrea Alvin,” while Kutcher is “Simon Goodspeed.” There is currently no listing for Rihanna nor her birth name, Robyn Rihanna Fenty. She is not even listed in the “uncredited” section.
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.
