Pronunciation question

Help solve an argument Littlest R and I are having:

Is the actor’s name Ashton Kooo-tcher or Ashton Kuh-tcher?

I maintain it’s Kuh-tcher because if it had been Kooo-tcher, the teasing during junior high school would have been unbearable. :wink:

I hear it with the same vowel sound as the oo in book. So neither of the two options you listed.


I read in an article that he prefers to pronounce it like “butcher.” I can’t find the article, so no cite. But that would have the same “oo” sound as in “book,” as Frylock mentioned.

Thanks. I guess neither Littlest R nor I was right!
