‘That’s A Friend’ Blends ‘Punk’d', Bromance, And Watsky

Ashton Kutcher's Punk'd was a pretty funny show, but did it have to be so gosh darn mean? That question lies at the heart of That's A Friend, a new series produced by Principato-Young for the Soiled Britches channel. The Kutcher of That's A Friend is Damien Dante Wayans, a peripheral member of the famous acting family who bides his time in this series by playing ultimately innocent pranks. In the first episode, he gets YouTube-famous rapper Watsky to fake a fight with huge black man Page Kennedy (who we recently heard on DeStorm's mixtape) to see if Watsky's friend would be willing to come to his aid in a clearly one-sided fight. In the end, the theme is friendship.

She’ll cut you with a smile if you get in her way.”

In fact, the strength of her character was one of the reasons Tatyana knew she wanted to be a part of the show.

“Sometimes you read parts and you don’t connect to them, and then sometimes you connect right away,” Tatyana explains. “I felt like I knew her, and I knew what I could do
