Topher Grace

Topher Grace, who was a weekly fixture in homes across America in the hit comedy series That '70s Show, seamlessly transitioned from the small screen to the big screen. As testament to his success, he was honored with Breakthrough Acting Awards by both the National Board of Review and the New York Online Film Critics for his starring roles in In Good Company and P.S. in 2004.

Currently, Grace is executive producing and starring in Kids in America for Imagine/Universal. Grace co-wrote the script with his producing partner Gordon Kaywin and stars opposite Anna Faris. He will also executive produce with Kaywin and star in Source Code, a sci-fi thriller for Universal. Grace also has the comedy Coxblocker in development with Seann William Scott.

Grace's major breakthrough in film came with his debut role in Steven Soderbergh's Oscar-nominated Traffic, which he followed up with a memorable cameo in Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven. He also reprised his cameo in the sequel, Ocean's Twelve. Grace's other credits include Robert Luketic's romantic comedy Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!, with Kate Bosworth and Josh Duhamel; and Mike Newell's Mona Lisa Smile, opposite Julia Roberts and Kirsten Dunst.

He fell into acting in high school, where he starred in productions such as The Pirates of Penzance, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Upon graduation, he moved to Los Angeles to attend USC where after only a short time he was called in to read for the starring role of Eric Forman on That '70s Show by a high-school classmate's parents who remembered him from a high-school performance. He currently resides in Los Angeles.
