What The Cast Of That '70s Show Looks Like Today

"That '70s Show" was a hilariously relatable series that originally aired on Fox from 1998 to 2006. Viewers grew to love the eclectic bunch of teenagers on the show, from the witty stoner Steven Hyde to the clueless pretty boy Michael Kelso. It became a comfort show for viewers across multiple generations, reminding some of its fans of the era they grew up in, while allowing others to get a peek into what life was like before texting and social media.

The series was so popular that it inspired two spinoff shows: "That '80s Show" in 2002 (which was a complete flop) and "That '90s Show" in 2023. Many of the original cast members made guest appearances in "That '90s Show," giving viewers a glimpse of what they look like now and causing some of us to wonder what they've been up to. Below, we're exploring all the different paths the cast took and where they ended up.

Topher Grace

Many people still associate Topher Grace with Eric Forman, the geeky guy who loves his next-door neighbor Donna (Laura Prepon) just as much as he loves "Star Wars." Since leaving "That '70s Show" in Season 7, Grace has taken on a ton of new roles that put his versatility as an actor on full display. You may have seen him in "Spider-Man 3" in 2007, "Valentine's Day" in 2010, or "Interstellar" in 2014. More recently, he has appeared in "BlacKkKlansman" in 2018, "Irresistible" in 2020, and has been the leading actor and executive producer for the show "Home Economics" since 2021.

He has reached some exciting milestones in his personal life as well. He married actress Ashley Hinshaw in 2016. As of February 2023, they have two kids and are expecting a third. He really has come a long way since getting pranked by his friends and smoking weed in the basement as Eric Forman.

Mila Kunis

Mila Kunis was only 14 years old when she started playing the role of Jackie Burkhart, the materialistic girl who loves fashion, stuffed animals, and hearing herself talk. Kunis has certainly kept herself busy since her time on "That '70s Show," whether she's the leading actress in a new movie or working behind the camera. She starred in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" in 2008, "Black Swan" in 2010, "Bad Moms" in 2016, and "Luckiest Girl Alive" in 2022, just to name a handful of her appearances on the big screen. She has been in a few animated shows as well, including "Stoner Cats" from 2021 to 2022 and "Family Guy," which she has been voice acting in the main cast since 1999.

On top of that, she launched a production company called Orchard Street Productions in 2014. That same year, she was executive producer of the film "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn." Despite working on so many projects, she still made time to find the love of her life and start a family. In 2015, she married Ashton Kutcher, and they're currently raising two children together.

Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher was very convincing as the dim-witted, girl-crazy Michael Kelso, but in real life, Kutcher has made one smart decision after another and become extremely successful. As of 2023, Kutcher has an astounding estimated $200 million in net worth, making him the most financially successful actor from "That '70s Show."

Kutcher has been in a number of movies, such as "What Happens in Vegas" in 2008, "Jobs" in 2013, and "Vengeance" in 2022. He also replaced Charlie Sheen on the hit show "Two and a Half Men" in 2011, making him the highest-paid actor on TV in 2013 with estimated earnings of $24 million from June 2012 to June 2013. In addition, he starred in and served as executive producer for "The Ranch" from 2016 to 2020, proving he's capable of working both on screen and behind the camera.

Aside from his work in the entertainment industry, Kutcher has grown his wealth substantially by making investments. In 2010, he founded the venture capital firm A-Grade Investments to invest in technology startups, most notably Airbnb and Uber. In 2012, he paid $3.64 million for a mansion that he sold for $9.925 million in 2014. Life doesn't sound too bad for Kutcher, especially considering he's also married to Mila Kunis.

Danny Masterson

Danny Masterson played Steven Hyde, the sarcastic, rebellious stoner with a heart of gold beneath his "tough guy" exterior. Masterson has appeared in many films, including "Yes Man" in 2008, "Alter Egos" in 2012, and "Urge" in 2016, but none of them launched him to superstardom. He seemed to have more success in television, starring in "Men at Work" from 2012 to 2014 and "The Ranch" from 2016 to 2018. 

In 2017, three women claimed Masterson sexually assaulted them in the 2000s. Two more women made similar allegations not long after. As a result, Netflix cut ties with him and wrote him out of "The Ranch." Masterson's accusers also sued him for stalking, conspiracy to obstruct justice, and invasion of privacy in 2019. A year later, he was arrested and charged with three counts of rape, to which he plead not guilty. If convicted, he could face up to 45 years to a life sentence in prison. The trial began in late 2022, but was declared a mistrial, so the case will be retried in March 2023. Masterson has continued working amid his legal issues, but he is notably absent from the spin-off series "That '90s Show."

Laura Prepon

Many people still remember Laura Prepon as Donna Pinciotti, but Prepon has come a long way since portraying the intelligent, strong-willed teen. After "That '70s Show" catapulted the actress into the spotlight, she landed roles in the movies "The Girl on the Train" in 2016, and "The Hero" in 2017. You may have also seen her in the shows "October Road" from 2007 to 2008, "Are You There, Chelsea?" in 2012, and "Orange is the New Black" from 2013 to 2019. She even showed off her skills as a director in Season 5, Episode 10 ("The Reverse Midas Touch") of "Orange is the New Black."

Aside from acting and directing, Prepon seems to be thriving in many other areas of her life. She married actor Ben Foster in 2018 and they currently have two children together. She has also embraced her love for cooking, co-writing the cookbook "The Stash Plan" in 2016 (which became a New York Times bestseller) and launching her cookware line PrepOn Kitchen in 2021. She wrote another book called "You and I, As Mothers" in 2020. From acting to cooking to raising a family, Prepon has shown us that she can succeed at whatever she puts her mind to.

Wilmer Valderrama

Wilmer Valderrama plays the onetime foreign exchange student Fez, who constantly made viewers laugh with his eccentric personality and perverted ways on "That '70s Show." Since the show ended, Valderrama has voice acted in several movies and shows, including "Handy Manny" from 2006 to 2012, "Onward" in 2020, and "Encanto" in 2021. Speaking of shows, he also appeared in "Awake" in 2012, and "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series" from 2014 to 2016. His tenure as Special Agent Nick Torres on the long-running procedural "NCIS" started in 2016 and continues as of 2023.

But if you thought Valderrama was just an actor, you'd be mistaken. He directed an episode of "Imagination Movers" in 2010 and served as executive producer of the series "The Hollywood Puppet Show" from 2017 to 2018. He also started the production company WV Entertainment in 2006 and became a shareholder in the iHeartRadio podcast "My Cultura" in 2022. Both the production company and podcast are dedicated to increasing Latinx representation in media.

Debra Jo Rupp

Who could forget Kitty Forman and her infectious laugh? Debra Jo Rupp did an incredible job of portraying the sassy yet lovable character who's a wife to Red (Kurtwood Smith), mother to Eric and Laurie (Lisa Robin Kelly), and fond of the occasional strong drink or two. After "That '70s Show" ended, Rupp landed one role after another. She appeared in the films "She's Out of My League" in 2010, "The Opposite Sex" in 2014, and "Fair Market Value" in 2019, just to name a few. She acted in several plays as well, such as "Becoming Dr. Ruth" in 2013 and "The Cake" in 2019.

You might have seen her in the shows "Better with You" from 2010 to 2011, "This is Us" from 2017 to 2018, and "The Ranch" from 2017 to 2020. Rupp even made her way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Mrs. Hart in the 2021 series "WandaVision," a role that she'll be reprising in the upcoming show "Agatha: Coven of Chaos" in 2023. Speaking of reprised roles, Rupp returned as Kitty Forman in "That '90s Show" — not as a guest star like most of the other original cast members, but as one of the leads. She also served as executive producer for the spin-off series.

Kurtwood Smith

Oh, Red Forman. When he isn't complaining to his wife Kitty, he stays busy disciplining his son Eric, spoiling his daughter Laurie, and constantly threatening to put his foot up someone's backside. Since his time on "That '70s Show," Kurtwood Smith has lent his voice to several shows and films, like "Beware the Batman" from 2013 to 2014, "Regular Show," and "F is for Family." From 2020 to 2022, he even narrated the podcast "The Integral Principles of the Structural Dynamics of Flow" (try saying that three times fast). The podcast is an interesting combination of offbeat comedy and folk songs. He also recently appeared in the Emmy-winning true crime miniseries "The Dropout." 

Smith was also in the films "Entry Level" in 2007, "Amityville: The Awakening" in 2017, and "Firestarter" in 2022. Most recently, he reprised his role of Red Forman in "That '90s Show," starring as a main cast member and serving as executive producer.

Lisa Robin Kelly

Lisa Robin Kelly played Eric's manipulative sister Laurie Forman on "That '70s Show." Laurie often bullies others to get her way, which her mother Kitty doesn't approve of, and her father Red seems completely oblivious to. Kelly regularly appeared on the show for the first two seasons, but unfortunately, she had a serious drinking problem and was written out of the series in Season 3. She returned briefly in Season 5 but left again and was replaced by Christina Moore the following season.

Kelly struggled with substance abuse for years, leading to several arrests for driving under the influence, spousal abuse, and assault. In 2013, she attempted to get sober and checked herself into a rehab center in California. Tragically, only a few days later at the age of 43, Kelly passed away while at the facility. Her death was ruled an accidental overdose of multiple drug intoxication.

Tommy Chong

Tommy Chong always made viewers laugh as Leonard "Leo" Chingkwake, the laidback pothead who owns the Photo Hut where Hyde works. Chong is possibly an even bigger stoner than his "'70s Show" character, so after the show ended, he decided to get into the cannabis business. He launched Tommy Chong's Cannabis in 2016, offering a wide variety of THC, CBD, and cannabis products. That was so successful that he took things a step further in 2021, reuniting with Cheech Marin to start Cheech & Chong dispensaries. The dispensaries are designed to look and feel like you're walking right into a "Cheech & Chong" movie. The next year, the duo launched Cheech & Chong's Takeout, a cannabis delivery service available in California.

He has worked on a number of film and TV projects as well. He co-wrote, starred in, and served as executive producer for "Hey Watch This" in 2010. He also wrote an episode of "Just for Laughs" in 2010, co-wrote "Cheech & Chong's Animated Movie" in 2013, and has appeared in multiple movies, including "It's Gawd!" in 2017, "Color Out of Space" in 2019, and "Scare Bear" in 2020. Far out, man.

Josh Meyers

After Topher Grace and Ashton Kutcher left "That '70s Show" during Season 7, the series was in need of a new character, so Josh Meyers started playing Randy Pearson in Season 8. Randy is a ladies' man with a goofy sense of humor who works with Hyde at the record store and dates Donna. Unfortunately for Meyers, he didn't play Randy for long because the show ended after that season.

Since then, he's been in a variety of movies, like "College Road Trip" in 2008, "Inventing Adam" in 2013, and "The Oath" in 2018. On top of that, he wrote for and appeared in the shows "MADtv" from 2002 to 2004 and "The Awesomes" from 2013 to 2015, had a recurring role in the series "Red Oaks" from 2014 to 2017, and has made many other minor TV appearances. He even took to the stage in the play "The Pee-Wee Herman Show on Broadway" in 2011. As of 2023, he is co-creating the upcoming show "Colony 2" with his brother, Seth Meyers.

Don Stark

Don Stark played the role of Bob Pinciotti, the Formans' good natured yet annoying next-door neighbor. He's known for embarrassing his daughter Donna, getting on Red's nerves, and opening up the appliance store Bargain Bob's.

Since "That '70s Show" ended, Stark has taken on a lot of new roles. He was in the films "Dark House" in 2009, "Safelight" in 2015, "7 Days to Vegas" in 2019, and more. Perhaps most notably, he played a role in the 2018 Oscar winner "Green Book" starring Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali. He was also a part of the shows "Red Sleep" in 2014, "Maron" in 2016, and "Hit the Floor" from 2013 to 2018. Some shows that he made guest appearances on include "The Young and the Restless" in 2007, "Anger Management" in 2013, and "Dollface" in 2022. In addition, he directed six of the eight episodes of "Luke 11:17" in 2008.
