The first ad I saw for Valentine’s Day opened with Topher Grace and I went “Oh yay!! He’s in a movie!!” Then the rest revealed a cast of people I do not want to see in a movie (Kutcher, Alba, Biel, Roberts, gack).
Every once in awhile he pops up and I ask the above question. He’s cute, talented, charming and has great comedic timing. He did a good “asshole Topher Grace” in the Oceans movies, made a great pining-best-friend in Win a Date with Tad Hamilton, and got rave reviews for In Good Company. He really perfected his sweet/snark combo on That 70’s Show (a show, BTW that should have ended when Topher left! WHY were they still hanging in the Foreman’s basement without Eric??)
So I went on YouTube to do some research for this post and there are lots of “Topher Grace leaves Crown Night Club/Topher Grace at Villa” etc. etc. so perhaps that’s why he’s not more famous – he’s busy Young Hollywooding it up at cheesy celeb “hotspots”. Well that’s disappointing.
