Celebrities We'd Like To See Get Punk'd

MTV's hit, Punk'd, is finally returning to TV after a five-year hiatus! Even though the new season's lineup of prankers and prankees is already established, there are a few people in particular who we'd really like to see as targets. Check out who made our list, and watch the ninth season of the show Thursdays at 10/9C to see if MTV made any of our wishes come true.

Kim Kardashian

Since millions of marriages fail every year, we can't say in good conscience that Kim Kardashian needs to be Punk'd because she got divorced after 72 days. We can, however, recommend that Punk'd producers do something about her belief that she's a "producer, writer, designer and creator."

Donald Trump's ego has always been terrible, but that's not why he deserves to be knocked down a few pegs. By pranking him, we'd get revenge on him for trying to boost ratings for "The Celebrity Apprentice" by "campaigning" to be President.

Anderson Cooper

We love Anderson Cooper, so we would never prank him to teach him any kind of lesson. Instead, we'd choose him as a victim because we selfishly want more footage of the high-pitched giggling.

Paris Hilton

Ashton Kutcher never pranked Paris Hilton. There are thousands of reasons why she should've been a target, but perhaps Ashton couldn't find a way to teach the heiress a lesson. And even though Paris keeps to herself now, her outrageous behavior from all those years means she's due for some retribution.

Perez Hilton

Even though Perez Hilton is less critical of public figures today, there were a few years when he used his website to bully people. It's great that he now acknowledges how cruel he used to be, but he needs to be officially disciplined for that time he spent photoshopping drug residue onto people's faces.

James Franco

James Franco now spends the majority of his time taking classes at esteemed colleges and universities. And while we don't fault him for wanting an education, he can't get off too easy for deciding he should teach a class about himself.

Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson's appearances in The Hangover movies prove the boxer can make other people laugh. But we still don't know if he can laugh at himself, and it would only take the disappearance of a few of his pigeons to know for sure.

Angelina Jolie

We know Angelina Jolie as an incredible humanitarian, mother of six, and possibly the soon-to-be wife of Brad Pitt. She always comes across as very serious, and is sometimes so poised it's like she's above humor altogether. If there's anyone with a wall up in need of bulldozing, it's hers.

Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher was punk'd in the first season, and he had to go through a metal detector a bunch of times. But now that the show's been revived, it's time for a more severe prank to get him back for the trucker hat trend.
