Sgt. Moore Reacts to Mila Kunis' Acceptance to the Marine Corps Ball

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Sgt. Scott Moore, the Marine in Afghanistan who will be taking Black Swan actress Mila Kunis to the Marine Corps Ball in November, spoke out Tuesday about why he invited the actress in the first place.

"The idea behind my YouTube invitation to Mila Kunis came about after some Marines from 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, and I were hanging out talking," Moore said in a statement. "One of the Marines bet that I wouldn't make the video and post it. Of course, a bet between Marines must be honored, so I took the chance. You can't make shots that you don't take, so I took the best shot I could.

"The Marines of 3/2, my family and friends back home in Grove City, Pa. have been so supportive, and did a great job of getting the video a lot of attention," he said. "I'm very excited about the opportunity to share the experience with Ms. Kunis and would like thank her for accepting my offer."

Over the weekend, Kunis said yes while doing publicity for her upcoming film, Friends with Benefits, with Justin Timberlake. Apparently it was Timberlake who encouraged Kunis to agree.

"JT and I had this all planned from the start. He's been a great wingman; it's nice to know he can get over the jealousy to help a brother out (just kidding)," Moore said. "Justin Timberlake's encouragement definitely helped; I owe him one."

In an e-mail sent to ABC News, Moore admitted that taking Kunis to the ball was a long shot.

"We all talk about what we are going to do when we get back, and this was my dream," he said. "I do feel bad for putting her on the spot, but it's not like I was going to bump into her on the streets of Musa Qala between now and the ball."

Instead, Moore, a data systems technician with the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, currently stationed in Musa Qala, Afghanistan, set up a YouTube page called "Go With Me Mila" and posted a brief video asking the 27-year-old actress to accompany him to the ball on Nov. 18 in Greenville, N.C.

"I always thought I had a chance, and sometimes that's all you need," Moore said in a statement.

This year's ball will be special, not just because Kunis is his date, but also because its the 236th birthday of the Marine Corps and his unit will be home from Afghanistan, Moore said. As for any special plans he has in store for Kunis, "I think I'll keep that a secret for now; we have to iron out the details."

David Becker/WireImage(INGLEWOOD, Calif.) -- Cali Swag District member Mante "M-Bone" Talbert, 22, was killed in a weekend drive-by shooting in his hometown of Inglewood, Calif., police said on Monday.

Cali Swag District rose to fame in 2010 with their hit song "Teach Me How to Dougie," inspiring everyone from Wolf Blitzer to NBA star John Wall to show off their own version of the classic dance craze, "the dougie." The group had been recording tracks for an upcoming album in their hometown of Inglewood, when "M-Bone" was shot and killed.

Talbert's manager told ABC News that Talbert was taking a break from the recording session to drive out to a store to get something to drink, when another car pulled up beside him and an unidentified person fired two shots, hitting him in the head.

Inglewood police said Monday that Talbert was found in his car at a liquor store Sunday night, and died at a hospital.

It was not immediately clear whether police had a suspect or possible motive.
