Why isn’t Topher Grace more famous?


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.

  1. I am in total agreement with you about That 70s Show. To make matters worse, in the last season, they got that guy “Randy” to join the gang. “Randy” was presumably cast because he sort of looks like a poor man’s Topher Grace.

    But when he started “seamlessly” blending into the group and moving in on Donna, it was actually kind of creepy . . . like the last 20 minutes of Single White Female creepy. I half expected the gang to find Eric locked in a closet somewhere, while “Randy” chased them around with a bloody meat cleaver.

    • Ha! And Ewwww. I think I missed Randy – actually I think I stopped watching bf TG left, but when I heard he left and the show was still going I definately did a “WTF?”

      I love that you use “Poor Man’s So and So”!!! I do that ALL THE TIME!!!
