Ashton can Digg it

Ashton Kutcher stars in Spread, a comedy about a sexual grifter who sleeps his way to a life of privilege in L.A.

Ashton Kutcher is an actor, Demi Moore’s much younger husband, and the face of Nikon’s Cool Pix camera campaign.

He’s also an avid Twitter fan. Twitter addict, even.

And he’s also coming to Vegas.

Kutcher will join founder and former Las Vegas resident Kevin Rose for an episode of Diggnation next week. The show’s regular co-host, Alex Albrecht, will also take part.

Rose publicized the former That 70’s Show star’s Diggnation appearance on Twitter this afternoon.

“Start chilling the beer for Vegas now!” Kutcher tweeted in response to Rose’s posting, which linked to a story published on one of Rose’s other start-up sites,, just before noon today. As Kutcher should know, we don’t need a reminder to chill the beer in Las Vegas.

Kutcher fans and residents of Diggnation are invited to attend the Vegas-based broadcast, which will begin at 5 p.m. at the Palms on Aug. 5.

The tech-savvy trio will set up in one of the resort’s ballrooms, according to a Palms spokesperson, but the exact location has yet to be confirmed.

The three Internet addicts will discuss the top stories listed on the, a site that allows users to submit and share links to stories, blogs, videos and other Web content.

Yet Diggnation is not the only reason Kutcher is coming to town. The 31-year-old star is also headed this way for the premiere of his new movie, Spread.

As such, the star will walk the red carpet outside Brenden Theaters immediately following his guest spot on Diggnation.

Kutcher’s co-star, Anne Heche, will also be at the Palms for the premiere but it has not been said whether or not Kutcher’s famous and famously older wife, Demi Moore, will be there.

The May-December pair, who enjoy a 15-years age difference, tied the knot in 2005.

In Spread, Kutcher plays a fun-loving freeloader who suddenly finds himself on the street after his sugar mamma, played by Heche, discovers he’s been cheating on her with a younger woman – one who is his own age.

The release hits theaters across the country on Aug. 14.
