Fez and Jackie together again? Yes please!

Among his many roles, Wilmer Valderrama has his eyes set on one in particular ... but it requires a special partner.

"I want to play Desi Arnaz," Valderrama, 35, said recently at the Television Critics' Association press tour. "I am having conversations with a number of people to hopefully make that real."

The iconic Desi Arnaz, best remembered as Ricky Ricardo from I Love Lucy, needs a leading lady next to him. Which brings us to the most important question: Who would play his Lucy?

"I gotta tell you, there are very few actresses, and not, no disrespect, but there are very few actresses that can actually have the courage to play Lucille Ball," the actor said. "It's one of the scariest characters any woman could ever take on, but I honestly think Mila Kunis could do it. She's been on a sitcom before. She's fun, she's really funny. She's fearless, and she is not afraid to be silly, too."

The duo, who shared the screen together during their time on That '70s Show, always had a special bond, according to Valderrama.

"We were all we had when we started on That '70s Show, and we continued to be the backbone of each other," Valderrama said. "We were really rooting for each other."
