Dax Shepard has come along way since doing Ashton Kutcher’s dirty work on the MTV hidden camera series “Punk’d.”Now he’s become a legitimate movie star – appearing in over ten movies since he left the celeb prank show in 2004. Some were good – like “Baby Mama.” Some were, well, not so good – like “Employee of the Month.” But regardless of the overall movie, Dax always delivers a solidly funny performance.
He’s become a leading man in real life, too. Over the holidays he proposed to his “When in Rome” co-star Veronica Mars… we mean Kristen Bell. Shepherd, 35, and Bell, 29, reportedly met at a mutual friend’s birthday party and went public with their relationship in 2007.
Next week Dax is making his triumphant return to TV, but this time it will be on a scripted, network series. In the latest small screen adaptation of Ron Howard’s 1989 film “Parenthood,” Shepard plays Crosby the commitment phobic youngest brother of the Braverman clan. We’re looking forward to seeing how far he’s come.
