This 70s show premiered this month 21 years ago. And just to make you feel really old, we'll also notice that 1977 was the year 21 years ago when people only heard of Star Wars for the first time. Now we are waiting for the conclusion of this saga, and the ninth film is ready in four months.
So while the seeds are being planted for the show 2010 we will look back on the show of the 70s and find out what happened to the cast.
What was & # 39; That & # 39; 70s show? # 19659007] The show ran on Fox from 1999 to 2006 and lasted eight seasons and exactly 200 episodes. This makes it the second longest live action show on Fox after Married … with Children the breakout hit of the then new network.
From 1976 to 1979, about six young friends lived in fictional Point Place, Wisconsin. The show chose a later timeframe, as at that time the trends of the 70s were in full swing and traces of the 60s were left behind. The disco era is about to begin, especially thanks to the Saturday Night Fever.
The features of the show included split screens, dream sequences and of course this stupid Packers helmet. Guest stars from 70's shows, including Mary Tyler Moore, Eve Plumb, aka Jan of The Brady Bunch, and Tom Bosley and Marion Ross, Mr. and Mrs. Cunningham of Happy Days . Recurring performer Tanya Roberts was a cast member of Charlie & # 39; s Angels . This show started in the 70s, although Robert's season began in 1980.
The Children in Cast
Most people know what happened to Kunis and Kutcher, who played Jackie and Michael, respectively. They were first with other famous people, Kutcher with Demi Moore and Kunis with Macaulay Culkin, before Kunis and Kutcher got married in 2015. They have two children together.
Topher Grace, who played Eric, was quite well known with performances in Spider-Man 3 (19459010) and Interstellar (19459010). Danny Masterson, who played Steven, remained fairly unremarkable, but met again in The Ranch with Kutcher.
Laura Prepon, who played Erics girlfriend Donna, was recently in The Girl on the Train with Emily Blunt. It is now best known for Orange is the New Black running on Netflix in its final season. Wilmer Valderrama, who played Fes, now appears in NCIS and was recently seen on social media, driving fans crazy with a picture of Cote de Pablo returning to her old job.
The Adults in the Occupation
Debra Jo Rupp, who played Kitty Forman, the family matriarch, was probably best known for Lisa Kudrow's sister-in-law at Friends. She was also in The Ranch with Kutcher and Masterson.
Kurtwood Smith, who played Kitty's husband Red, is one of those character actors who ask, "Where did I see him before?" The answer would be RoboCop, Rambo III and Dead Poet Society, among many others.
Don Stark played Bob, Donna's father, who practically lit the audience in his underwear. His credits range from Switchblade Sisters to Peggy Sue Got Married to American Horror Story and Castle .
Tanya Roberts, who played Bob's wife Midge, appeared in 1985 in Roger Moore's latest James Bond film A View to a Kill . She retired from acting to look after her terminally ill husband.
Tommy Chong became famous in the 1970s as half of the marijuana-laden comedy team Cheech and Chong. Fittingly, he played a hippie on the show. He is still campaigning for the legalization of marijuana.
