From 1998 to 2006, for eight seasons and 200 episodes, Americans all over sat down for 22 minutes to watch That 70s Show. We watched the hilarious Red and Kitty be the ultimate mom-dad duo, we watched all the love triangles that emerged in the group, and we watched and laughed with them at the “round table”. This show is forever in our hearts and we can’t help but watch re-runs whenever they’re on TV. So now that it’s basically the 10 year anniversary since the show has been off air, we decided to take a look to see what our beloved cast is up to now. The transformation that some of these wild cats are undergone is shocking.
What could we possibly say about the Canadian-American comedian, actor, writer, director, activist, and musician other then he was the brilliant star of the marijuana-themed Cheech & Chong comedy albums and movies with Cheech Marin, plus he starred the hilarious Leo on the show. Since the show, he has starred in countless more film and TV shows. But we will always remember him as Chong and Leo.
You probably recognized Josh Meyers from Mad TV before his role on That 70’s Show as Randy Pearson. And did you know he’s the younger brother of Late Night host Seth Meyers? Yeah, the resemblance is there. He’s starred in other hilarious films and TV shows since then of course.
Lisa Robin Kelly
Before her role as Laurie Forman, she had done a lot of other TV shows like Married… with Children, The X Files, and Days of Our Lives. After the show, she did a few films but not much. She suffered from alcoholism for a long time and in 2013, she went to a rehab facility but sadly died in her sleep.
You’re forgiven if you forgot that the incredible Luke Wilson was in the show as Casey Kelso. You probably remember him from Old School, Bottle Rocket, The Royal Tenenbaums, Blue Streak, Bongwater, and Legally Blonde.
Did you know that Bob Pinciotti’s real name is Don Start and that he has an extensive background in dancing, bodybuilding and martial arts? Yeah, we’re shocked too. He has gone on to star in other TV shows but nothing like his reoccurring and prime role in That 70’s Show.
Oh, you forgot she was in That 70’s Show? Probably due to the fact that she starred in the hilarious films of American Pie, Scary Movie and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Plus she did turn into a widely known sex symbol for her role in comedy film, American Pie. Well on the show, she did only star in 9 episodes as Brooke, Kelso’s love interest.
Roberts is well known for her role as Stacey Sutton in the James Bond film, A View to a Kill (1985), and as the hilarious Midge Pinciotti. She started off modeling then switched to acting not long after. She actually left the show in 2001 because her husband had become terminally ill, he sadly passed away in 2006 and she hasn’t starred in anything since his death.
Come on, as if you haven’t noticed that Ashton Kutcher has become a mega star since his That 70’s Show days. He’s starred in countless films and TV shows, plus he’s produced his fair share of work. From to 2005 until 2013, he was married to Demi Moore. Now as much as we loved them as a couple, we are SOOOOO much happier that Ashton and Mila Kunis are together! He and Kunis got engaged in 2014, had their daughter Wyatt that same year, got married in 2015, and had a son in 2016, Dimitri.
Debra Jo Rupp
Ahh, Kitty, we adore you. Before she starred as Kitty, she did some work before then but none brought her the same success. Since then, she’s done some animated work, starred in more TV shows, film, and theatre. Chalk it up to needing a brain injury attorney but she is still one of the best TV moms out there.
Did you know that Hyde, ahem, Danny Masterson has been acting since he was four years old? Whoa. Casting director of That 70’s Show said he redefined the role of Hyde in his audition and made the role of Steven Hyde the, “tough, funny guy.” Since then he’s done a bit of DJing, owns a lounge and bar in Park City, Utah called Downstairs, and does a bit of modeling. He’s married to Bijou Phillips and they have a daughter.
Our dear Red Forman also had many appearances in science fiction films and television programs, before and after the show. His iconic “dumba**” catchphrase still makes all of us laugh to this day. He’s also had extensive voice acting like Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel, and FreeSpace 2, and on a number of animated series.
Ugh, our girl Mila Kunis is just too darn beautiful and crazy smart. Since her days of playing Jackie Burkhart, Kunis has gone on to star in some incredible films, picking up awards along the way too. And since 1999, she has voiced Meg Griffin on the animated series Family Guy. Like we said, she and Ashton Kutcher got engaged in 2014, had their daughter Wyatt that same year, got married in 2015, and had a son in 2016, Dimitri. We are so happy for you crazy kids.
We were all heartbroken when Eric Forman was written off the show and replaced. We are however happy to know that he went on to star in other TV shows and countless films. Plus he also married actress Ashley Hinshaw in 2016, which is pretty cool.
The one and only, Fez. Since the end of the show, he has gone on to star in many films and television shows, most notably, The Ranch, Grey’s Anatomy, and NCIS (he’s now a series regular). Valderrama is also pursuing a music career although he has yet to make or release an album.
This actress, producer and author is well known for her portrayal of Donna Pinciotti in all eight seasons of That 70’s Show and for her role as Alex Vause in the Netflix original comedy-drama series Orange Is the New Black. Since That 70’s Show, she has starred in a quite a few television shows (like How I Met Your Mother) and films (like The Girl on the Train).
