[In this feature, we periodically check in to see what is up with Topher Grace.]

As the world spins inexorably towards its looming conclusion in the year 2012, we continue to see signs that perhaps the crushing tsunamis and torrential fireballs will be a welcome reprieve from what is obviously an already hopeless fate. For example, today it is being reported that Miley Cyrus’s younger sister, Noah Cyrus, is launching her own line of lingerie. Oh, that is nice. WHOOPS, SHE IS NINE YEARS OLD. Sure, (not sure), nine-year-olds are just as susceptible as the rest of us to the waning heat of our youthful sexuality, and find themselves turning towards erotic play and heightened sensuality in order to keep the flame of passion alive. But surely children should be eating animal crackers and drinking juice, and not designing crotchless pants “that can be worn with sweet ballerina slippers, funky sneakers or paired with lace stockings and boots for more of a rock and roll look.” (P.S. we are definitely going to need a bigger World’s Best Dad mousepad for Billy Ray Cyrus. That guy is just killing it in the Dad Dept.)

But it is not 2012 yet, and as humans it is our duty, until that day comes, to remember that WE ARE STILL HERE. We will never give up or back down, no matter how disgusting and honestly just kind of straight-up depressing we things get!

Speaking of human beings who are still here: what’s up with Topher Grace?!

Obviously, with the release of Valentine’s Day so close (Valentine’s Day opens wide February 12th), Topher is up to being hard at work on the publicity circuit, because when Topher signs onto a project, he gives his heart and soul over to it. If you’re not going to give 110% why even bother? Is what I am assuming is Topher’s philosophy on acting. Speaking of putting your heart and soul into something: you guys should probably go on Fandango and buy your tickets for Valentine’s Day now, because you do not want to embarrass yourself in front of your date on the most sacred day of the year when the movie is SOLD OUT. Then what? Dinner? Drinks? How about Dumped!

Anyway, here he is in an interview about his character in Valentine’s Day, Jason:

Oh man. The passion and excitement that Topher feels for his role and the movie is ELECTRIC. I don’t know how you COULDN’T be excited about Valentine’s Day after watching this. Team Jason! has some great new photos of Topher at a press conference for Valentine’s Day. There are lots of great photos of him at the site (and also some photos of Shirley MacLaine!), but these are some of the highlights:

Looking great, T to the G! Speaking of looking great, a tipster across the pond informs us that Topher’s work is getting the international attention it deserves! Writes J:

Topher is currently grace-ing (haha) london buses with his face in advertisements for the much anticipated Love Actually 2. I spotted him this morning at Elephant and Castle station -J

Very cool! Of course, in England they aren’t called advertisements, they’re called “lorries.” And I don’t really think that calling the movie Love Actually 2, when the movie is called Valentine’s Day, is very respectful to all the hard work that the cast and crew have put into it, but maybe that kind of irreverent disregard is accetable in England.

Of course, Topher Grace knows that none of it would mean anything without the fans, and that is why he has teamed up with his old friend Ashton Kutcher to ask people to submit videos of their own!

What a couple of Channings Tatum. Let’s all start recording our videos now! Send the YouTube links to your videos to

Meanwhile, website Media Takeout has some SPLAININ to do!

UMMMMM IS RIGHT! First of all, that is Topher Grace, sir, not “a male actor.” Sheesh, ever seen In Good Company?! Second of all, even if it was just a random male actor, or even just a random male, I am quite sure that it is none of Media Takeout’s business! Both Topher Grace and Jamie Foxx are entitled to live their lives however they chose to with at least a modicum of privacy. Granted, Jamie Foxx seems like an egomaniacal date rapist, but whether he wants to egomaniacally date rape women or men is HIS BUSINESS. This whole thing makes me sick. Thankfully, and handful of the Hatecrime Takeout commenters have done their best to clear things up (although I am not convinced that an angry letter writing campaign is out of order).

Philly19138: That’s Topher Grace…that’s not his man MTO stop spreading these false rumors!!!

And this comment expresses what I was trying to in the above paragraph better than I ever could:

boardmaster706 .once again..who gives a fuc.k, i aint him so it dont matter if he a dick pusher

Well put, boardmaster706. I am going to recommend you for placement on the Executive Committee of Human Rights Watch.

I hate to end the column on such a sour note, since What’s Up With Topher Grace? is all about positivity through celebrity. But luckily, I don’t have to, because, of course, That ’70s Show remains popular in syndication. Great news!

There you go. That is what is up with Topher Grace. Send your Topher tips to See you next time!

  1. This is by far the BIGGEST WUWTG segment ever. SO MUCH NEWS!

  2. I wonder who went through Topher’s wallet to get those Jamie Foxx pictures.

  3. Topher went and saw Tyler Perry’s Big Happy Family.

    When he found out about the cancer bit he was like

    Because cancer is serious.

    But by the time they sang the 6th gospel song and he was like

    ‘cuz that shit was played out

  4. I know this is a bit sacrilegious, and I spent a decent amount of my gumtime last week sticking up for him (like he needs it, right?!) But Note To TGrace: stop saying “Seacrest Out,” it’s driving us apart and I value this relationship too much not to fight for it.

  5. Dusnt this gi host American Idol or sumthing?

  6. Hey guys! I’m totally not a dick pusher, laughing out loud! And, like Gabriel said, don’t forget to check out my new move Valentines Day, in theaters February 12!!

    (This comment has been officially approved by Topher Grace)

    • not to be too literal here, but wouldn’t straight guys be considered “dick pushers” too?

    • Not to sound naive about how the internet works, but these updates have been going on a while, I thought it was only a matter of time before THE MAN of hte hour actually makes an appearnace. Could that be the real TG? Will the real Topher please stand-up?

  7. Did he and Ashton film that video in a woman’s bathroom?

  8. My brother had the same haircut as Topher Grace in 9th grade.

    • Has it ever crossed your mind what the star’s haircut was called in 9th grade? The very obvious answer would be “what else, the same haircut as Topher Grace”. You got it wrong this time. As a young kid, it was called as the same haircut as Chris by all his friends, and for dome reason or the other he didn’t admire it a bit.

  9. I’ve been waiting all twelve hours or so since I sent my tip in to see it here and I am so ashamed. On behalf of the London Borough of Southwark and all of England I apologize for not calling V-Day by its proper name. I look forward to the November 12th* release of He’s Just Not That Into Valentine’s Day, Actually.

    *average time it takes an American film to premiere in the UK: 3 years

  10. Do you think Topher watched LOST last night?

  11. Hidden due to low comment rating. Click here to see

    • Dude, it’s TOPHER GRACE! How can you not “get” him? There’s nothing ironic or tongue-in-cheek about this. T-Boz is maybe the greatest actor of his generation and it’s just a beautiful coincidence that he happens to be so dreamy.
      We’re all HUGE TG fans here at Videogum. It’s the primary reason we stick around. I mean, Gabe’s other posts are great and all, but how can you compete with Topher Grace? You can’t. I know I’m not alone in saying that I get so excited for this feature. Whenever I see those sensuous, thoughtful eyes staring back at me against a romantic sunset, I get chills. It’s seriously one of the highlights of my week.
      T-Grace 4EVER!<3

    • And how have you not seen That 70s Show? It remains popular in syndication!

    • “Can someone point me in the direction of some extremely pertinent Topher Grace material?”

      My locker would totes be a g00d start! bangles!

  12. Topher Grace should be the new editor of VGum when Gabe inevitably locks himself in a subway utility closet on December 31, 2011

    • You Mean December 20th, 2012

    • And I highly doubt that T-shizzle would be able to download his blog to videogum at that particular time, anyway, as he will be being escorted to his place aboard one of the Glover Survival Arks.

      The essence of our civilization MUST be preserved. T-Grace for President 2013!

  13. my thoughts during the VDAYGIFT video: “wow. how is topher hanging out with ashton kutcher? isn’t ashton super famous? it must be because they’re in that movie together. must be forced. maybe- OH MY GOD I FORGOT THAT 70s SHOW EVER HAPPENED.”

  14. I want Topher Grace to tag me

  15. So, now nine year olds are dressing up like whores? Man. All that money I spent paying for the opposite.

  16. “i had pretend sex with ANNIE HATHAWAY. that’s what all her pretend lovers call her.”

    • Celebrities referring to each other by slightly-altered names like “Annie Hathaway” or “Bobby DeNiro” is definitely one of my most hated things. What is that, pulling the curtain back a little bit on the coveted world of celebrity? “What is remote for you is familiar for me!” You’re an asshole.

  17. Can’t wait to see where child lingerie ranks in the Best and Worst Valentine’s Day Presents Top 100s.

  18. Duh, Gabe. His character’s name is JASON, not Josh. What an insult to TGrace that you didn’t cherish every word that fell from his glorious lips when he explained his significant role in what will probably be the best film of the decade!

  19. I hope Topher Grace finally decides to do a Bosom Buddies remake with Shia LeBeouf.

    I think we all know who gets the Tom Hanks part


    This summer everything you know about friendship will change



    Junk will be tucked!


    Bosoms will be Buddied

    …ok I’ll stop now

  20. I am predicting a Noah Cyrus Young n’ Sassy ® “Achy-Breaky Heart” collection. It will play well with the pro-family (unlike the homersexuals) crowd. Also, there needs to be an editing mark for when you intentionally spell something incorrectly.

  21. “You guys, Gare Marsh is totally the undisputed champion of whatever genre this movie I’m in falls into.”

  22. That Love Actually 2 thing is a total lie. Topher would never sign up for a lame, derivative first sequel. Love Actually 3:The Secret of the Ooze? That’s a different story.

  23. Why does Ashton Kutcher have a noose hanging behind his head?

    Oh, never mind, I figured it out.
