I was thinking, how many times can I hear this dude in this golf outfit tell me he can punch me out before I’m just not going to be able to handle it
Dax Shepard was close to punch Justin Timberlake
Back in the days when Dax Shepard began his career he was just an addict with violent tendencies. He made his debut as an actor on the Ashton Kutcher-hosted MTV prank show Punk’d. In one of his first shows he had to prank Justin Timberlake. In case you don’t remember, Shepard posed as a federal agent who had been tasked with seizing Timberlake’s home to settle a tax debt. Timberlake did what every man would do: he called his mom to help him.
Recently, Shepard recalled the stunt during an interview for Marc Maron. It looks like Shepard was close to punch Timberlake back then. “At the end of the bit when Ashton comes out and says, ‘You’re on Punk’d blah, blah, blah, and everyone’s celebrating…the bit is over, the cameras are off and Timberlake keeps saying, ‘I was about to f–king punch you’. I was like, ‘Hmmm…alright’ ‘I was for real man. I was about to f–king punch you out’…I was thinking, how many times can I hear this dude in this golf outfit tell me he can punch me out before I’m just not going to be able to handle it”, he said.
We really don’t know if that’s even true, we bet Timberlake was aware of the prank. Still, if what Shepard says is ture, then he’s really awesome. That’s probably why his wife Kristen Bell loves him so much.
