That '70s Show: Where Are The Cast Members Now?

This article contains allegations of sexual assault.

In 1998, "That '70s Show" introduced audiences to Eric, Donna, Fez, Jackie, Kelso, and Hyde — the high-flying friends of Point Place, Wisconsin who had a knack for marijuana-based shenanigans. Along with the antics of their parents, the gang made the 70s accessible (and beloved) for TV audiences worldwide. When the show ended in 2006 after eight seasons, many of its stars remained ingrained in the Hollywood scene. "We spent eight years and 200 episodes together, we traveled the world ... we grew up together. We were a family, and will always be," Wilmer Valderrama, who played Fez, recalled in a touching Instagram post celebrating the show's 20th anniversary in 2018.

Most of the core "That '70s Show" cast members have even made appearances in Netflix's spin-off, "That '90s Show," featuring the children of the hit sitcom's original characters. The notable exception to this is Danny Masterson. As well as not starring in the show, his character, Hyde, has also been omitted from its flashback sequences. In 2020, the actor was arrested on charges of sexual assault – as of this writing, he was awaiting his second trial.

In early 2023, "That '90s Show" was renewed for a super-sized second season, reviving a new era of nostalgia for audiences all over again. So what happened to those hipsters from Point Place? Only a trip down memory lane in the old Vista Cruiser can help us find out.

Topher Grace made a movie career

Topher Grace starred as nerd-next-door Eric Forman all the way through until Season 7 of "That '70s Show." After leaving the show in 2005, Grace set his sights on feature films. His first big post-show role was as Eddie Brock-slash-Venom in Sam Raimi's critically panned "Spider-Man 3" opposite Tobey Maguire. He then spent the next decade or so starring in a wide array of projects, from big-budget blockbusters like Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" and ensemble comedy "Valentine's Day" to comedies like "Take Me Home Tonight" and "American Ultra." 

In 2018, he portrayed Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke in Spike Lee's "BlacKkKlansman," a controversial role for an otherwise uncontroversial actor. "I didn't want to play David Duke in a TV movie of the week," Grace revealed to The Hollywood Reporter. "I want[ed] to play David Duke in a Spike Lee joint. [Duke is] a horrible, evil man. But as an actor, it's a juicy, wonderful role."

Grace returned to his TV roots in the ABC comedy series "Home Economics" in 2021. "I had been with a dream team that I loved before on TV and I was nervous to come back" he shared with ET. "It's easier ... when you're actually playing a family [starring] with people who feel like family." The show was renewed through Season 3 in 2022. Grace has also been focusing on his personal life. He married actor Ashley Hinshaw in 2016, and the couple shares two children together. In September 2022, they announced they were expecting their third. 

Laura Prepon went from Orange to author

Laura Prepon starred as girl-next-door Donna Pinciotti on all eight seasons of "That '70s Show." After the show ended in 2006, Prepon cycled through a number of television series, including the 2007 ABC drama "October Road," which was canceled after two seasons. Prepon also made guest appearances on shows including "How I Met Your Mother" and "House M.D." to close out the 2000s. 

Then, in 2012, Prepon signed on to star in the Netflix series "Orange is the New Black," which premiered in July 2013. The show became one of the streamer's most-watched series and garnered a number of accolades, including four Primetime Emmys. The show ended after seven seasons in 2019. Speaking to Collider, Prepon revealed that having experienced the pain of "That '70s Show" ending, she knew what to expect when "OITNB" came to a close. "I knew about the grief ... after a long-running show ends, so I was very prepared for what was to come," she said. "... When we were approaching the last episode, I was very thankful that I had gone through this before, so I knew what to expect, but there [were] still a lot of tears."

As for her personal life, Prepon married actor Ben Foster in 2018 and the couple share two children together. She also tuned into her writing skills. In 2018, she co-authored the New York Times-best-selling wellness book, "The Stash Plan" and also published "You and I, As Mothers: A Raw and Honest Guide to Motherhood" in 2020.

Ashton Kutcher broke big on screen and behind-the-scenes

Ashton Kutcher starred as Michael Kelso, the hunkiest idiot in Point Place, Wisconsin, for seven seasons of "That '70s Show." Like co-star Topher Grace, Kutcher left the show in 2005 to expand his career, and he spent a good chunk of the 2000s being a go-to rom-com leading man, headlining films like "What Happens in Vegas," "Killers," and "No Strings Attached." He returned to his TV roots in 2011 when he infamously "replaced" Charlie Sheen on "Two and a Half Men," remaining with the show until its finale four years later. Right after, Kutcher and his "That '70s Show" co-star Danny Masterson reunited for the Netflix series "The Ranch," which ended in 2020. 

For a while, the star also maintained his own production company, Katalyst Films, alongside co-owner Jason Goldberg. Their company produced the millennial-age hit prank show "Punk'd," which Ashton also hosted, along with a number of films and other media projects. Perhaps more notably, he also co-founded A-Grade Investments in 2010, which has helped fund start-ups like Uber and Airbnb.

Kutcher famously married actor Demi Moore in 2005 before announcing their separation six years later. However, he eventually married his former "That '70s Show" on-screen love, Mila Kunis, in 2015, with the couple welcoming two children together. "The thing about Mila that made our relationship accelerate was that I had always admired her," he told Esquire in 2023. "Her talents, her skills, her gifts. But I knew that she didn't need me. And she knew that I didn't need her."

Mila Kunis landed some legendary roles

Mila Kunis' first major role was as sassy snob Jackie Burkhart on "That '70s Show." Cast at 14, she was the youngest of the main cast members and remained on the show through all eight seasons. But that's not the only long-standing TV role that Kunis is known for. She's also been the voice of Meg Griffin on "Family Guy" since 1999. 

Her big breakthrough in film came in 2008 with her starring role in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." Both the film and Kunis' performance in it received rave reviews, prompting more roles to come her way. She subsequently starred in a number of raunchy rom-coms, including 2011's "Friends With Benefits," 2012's "Ted," and 2016's "Bad Moms," along with its 2017 sequel. She has also tapped into her darker side with roles in the 2010 Oscar-nominated film "Black Swan" and the 2022 Netflix thriller "Luckiest Girl Alive."

Having been happily married to Ashton Kutcher since 2015, with two kids in tow, Kunis appears to be incredibly grateful for the life they've built together. "When you get older, then you realize you can't buy time and you can't buy health, so the second you have time and the second you [get] health, you're like, 'Wow, I'm so lucky.'" she shared with E! News. Kunis, a proud native of Ukraine, also launched a GoFundMe campaign with Kutcher in an effort to raise funds for the country during Russia's invasion in 2022. A year later, the fund had raised more than $37 million for impacted Ukranians.

Wilmer Valderrama made a name for himself

Wilmer Valderrama was everyone's favorite foreign exchange student, Fez on "That '70s Show." After the show ended in 2006, he kept himself active in film, television, and beyond. He notably hosted and executive produced the MTV trash-talking competition show, "Yo Mamma" until 2007. He also enjoyed recurring roles on a number of shows like "Awake," "From Dusk Till Dawn," and "Grey's Anatomy." Not to mention, he's enjoyed guest appearances in several of his "That '70s Show" co-stars' projects, including Laura Prepon's "Are You There, Chelsea?" and Ashton Kutcher's "The Ranch." 

In 2016, he became a regular on "NCIS" and has crossed over to the show's spin-offs a number of times. He has also become an in-demand voice actor, appearing in Disney's "Encanto" and "Onward," as well as starring as the title character in the children's series "Handy Manny." 

Valderrama's love life has also kept him in the spotlight. Throughout the 2000s he was in a number of widely publicized relationships, notably with starlets much younger than him such as Mandy Moore, Lindsay Logan, and Demi Lovato. In 2022, the latter even released the damning song, "29," thought to be about their relationship. He eventually settled down with model Amanda Pacheco, and the couple welcomed their first child together in 2021. Valderrama has remarked on the legacy he hopes that he and the close-knit "'70s Show" cast will use to help raise their broods. "We really joke around that we're going to have a 'That '70s' dynasty," he shared with E! News.

Debra Jo Rupp took to the stage

Debra Jo Rupp delighted audiences as giggling matriarch Kitty Forman on "That '70s Show" throughout all eight seasons. After the show ended in 2006, the veteran actress returned to her roots and took to the stage in a number of productions. She appeared on stage at the Williamstown Theatre Festival and the Barrington Stage Company, including an acclaimed turn in the titular role of "Becoming Dr. Ruth." 

The show began its Off-Broadway in 2013 and earned Rupp several nominations for Outstanding Solo Performance. "[Portraying a real person] was absolutely terrifying," Rupp shared with Broadway World. "But I think [Dr. Ruth and I] are actually very similar. We both have really high energy ... and we're both kind of strong. I was able to find that immediately and that helped a lot." Rupp returned to the Off-Broadway stage in 2019 in "The Cake," which earned her another Drama League Award nomination for her performance.

It wasn't just theatre that kept Rupp active. On TV, she enjoyed appearances on "The Ranch" alongside "That '70s Show" co-star Ashton Kutcher as well as a recurring role on "WandaVision" on Disney+. She returned to her fictional Point Place roots in "That '90s Show" alongside her on-screen husband, Kurtwood Smith. "I love playing that part," Rupp revealed to Vulture. "There are no rules. I was shocked and then a little honored. And then I got very excited. The show needed a grounding force to bring it back."

Kurtwood Smith stays booked and busy

Kurtwood Smith played curmudgeon patriarch Red Forman on all eight seasons of "That '70s Show." "In some ways, [he's] my favorite character because I was with him so long," Smith told Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "And there are things about him that remind [me] of myself. I really enjoy being around that character." 

The veteran actor, best known for his villainous role in the original 1987 "RoboCop," continued with both television and film work after the original series ended in 2006. This included a number of voice work projects jobs on projects like "Family Guy," "Green Lantern: The Animated Series," "Beware the Batman," and "Rick and Morty." Naturally, he's also enjoyed live-action guest star arcs on shows like "24" and "Agent Carter." Similarly to his fellow "'70s Show" co-stars, he too had a recurring role on the Netflix series "The Ranch," as Old Man Peterson. 

In 2023, Smith reprised his role as Red Forman alongside his on-screen wife Debra Jo Rupp in "That '90s Show." Although this new version of the sitcom takes place in a different era, Smith has said that his signature catchphrase remains as synonymous with him as it did in the original series. "[People] come up and they go, 'Hey man, can you call me a dumbass?'" Smith shared with Collider. "And what I used to say was, 'Anybody who wants to be called a dumbass is a dumbass.' And then I'd call them a dumbass, and they'd be happy."

Tommy Chong keeps it chill

Tommy Chong, one-half of the famous cinematic stoner duo Cheech and Chong, portrayed happy hippie Leo Chingkwake on "That '70s Show," beginning as a recurring character in Season 2 and appearing in almost 40 episodes by the end of the series in 2006. However, after Season 4, Chong was absent from two seasons of the show after he was arrested and jailed for selling glass pipes online, deemed to be used for marijuana. After he served nine months for his crimes, he returned to the show for the final two seasons. 

After "That '70s Show" ended in 2006, Chong continued to make appearances on TV, including as a contestant on celebrity-based competitions "Dancing with the Stars" in 2014 and "The Masked Singer" in 2019. Chong has had a number of voice-over roles, from an appearance in Disney's "Zootopia" to appearing alongside his partner-in-crime Cheech Marin in "Cheech & Chong's Animated Movie." 

When news of "That '90s Show" first broke, Chong wasn't sure if he was going to appear in the show's spin-off, which started filming in 2022. "I heard they were going to reboot it, but I never got a call," he said to Variety. "I was like, 'What's going on here?' But then the call came, and we were shooting right away. I like the paycheck."
