Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher will join several former cast members of "That 70s Show" for a cast reunion on "Fox 's 25th Anniversary Special," that will air on Sunday, April 22, at 8 p.m. According to Fox, the "Two and a Half Men" star will join Mila Kunis, Laura Prepon and Wilmer Valderrama where the show's former stars will "remember their earliest break into stardom and growing up on set."

"That 70s Show" was on the Fox network for eight seasons, from 1998 through 2006. Another great cast who will appear on the anniversary special are Keenen Ivory Wayans, Marlon Wayans and Shawn Wayans, from Fox's early '90s comedy series, "In Living Color."

In addition, cast members from several former Fox series "Married With Children," "The X-Files" and "Beverly Hills, 90210" are also reuniting for the two-hour special.

With so many celebs returning to television that we haven't seen together for a number of years, it makes us think of other wonderful casts we'd like to see reunite, even if it is just for a day.

ABC's "Full House," ran for nearly a decade from 1987 through 1995. The well-known twins who portrayed the youngest daughter Michelle, Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, grew up in on the series. They haven't done a lot onscreen since then, and it might be interesting to see them interact with Bob Saget who played their obsessive-compulsive dad on the show.

John Stamos, one of the hottest sex symbols of the '80s and '90s, played Uncle Jesse, and he's still sizzling. At the recent GLAAD Media Awards he gave a touching speech but couldn't resist poking fun at his old series. He remarked, "As an actor, they have cast me in some very provocative and challenging roles."

He mentioned parts in "The Regans" and "Raisin in the Sun," and added, "They also cast me in my very first gay role -- Uncle Jessie from 'Full House.' "

The cast of "Friends" may be number one on the lists of shows that many would like to see return to television. It's hard to believe it's been eight years since the cancellation of one of our favorite sitcoms. A reunion has been discussed, but when Jennifer Aniston was asked about it in February she told MTV News, " No, there will be none. I don't think so. ... Wouldn't that be weird?" She added, "I would be like, 'Oh god, why did they do that?'

The "Horrible Bosses" star also nixed a big screen version. She told The Hollywood Reporter, "'Friends' is in your living room; 'Friends' is not in a movie theater. It doesn't make sense to me. I think it would be going against its authentic self."
