Hollywood’s unofficial ambassador to Silicon Valley will be in New York next week to talk shop.

And we don’t mean his new gig replacing Charlie Sheen on CBS’ ‘Two and a Half Men.’


Ashton Kutcher, who has 7 million followers on Twitter, will be interviewed onstage Tuesday at TechCrunch Disrupt by Charlie Rose, who will delve into the actor’s role as a prolific entrepreneur and investor.

Three tidbits courtesy of TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington on the famous actor’s tech cred:

-- Kutcher invested in Skype alongside Silverlake Partners and Andreessen Horowitz in 2009.

-- His portfolio as an angel investor includes high-profile bets such as Flipboard and Kevin Rose’s Milk.

-- He has helped companies he has backed with their products, for example by advising Blekko CEO Rich Skrenta on Blekko’s mobile offering.
