Computer maker Lenovo has hired tech-savvy actor Ashton Kutcher to help design and pitch its latest line of tablets.

It's the latest tech foray for the “Two and a Half Men” performer who recently starred in a biopic about innovative giant Steve Jobs and has invested venture capital in more than a dozen Silicon Valley startups.

The deal was announced on Tuesday at a Lenovo live-streamed event in Los Angeles. Lenovo's first video advertisements for the new Yoga Tablet feature Kutcher acting as a product tester in his boxers, a spacesuit and aboard an airplane.

Kutcher has appeared in advertisements for snack chips and cameras.
