Hey, What’s Up With Topher Grace?

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

Can you believe that the holidays are already here again? I mean, the holidays aren’t really here yet. There’s still awhile before the holidays. But the holidays are basically here. I saw an ad on TV this week for a Christmas special starring all of your favorite characters from the hit animated movies Madagascar and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa called Merry Madagascar. It’s going to air on NBC on November 17th. November 17th! A Christmas special before Thanksgiving even! This nonsense really does start earlier-and-earlier every year, just like the grouches are always complaining about. It is weird, though, that Merry Madagascar is airing next week instead of on Christmas Eve when the whole family would probably want to make a super important annual family tradition out of it because of how good I bet it is going to be.

Anyway, it’s the time of year where family and friendship and good will compete head-to-head (to-head-to-head) with crass materialism, but luckily for us, we have one thing that we can all share that doesn’t cost a thing. And that is Topher Grace news.

What is up with him?!

Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks this week to star in a movie called Source Code, directed by Duncan Jones, who directed Moon. Uh, Gabe, this is a column about what is up with Topher Grace, not what is up with Jake Gyllenhaal and what is also up with Duncan Jones. Uh, I know?! From Variety:

“Source Code” centers on a soldier who wakes up in the body of an unknown commuter and is forced to live and relive a harrowing train bombing until he can determine who is responsible for it.

Project had originally been set up at Universal in early 2007 when the studio bought Ben Ripley’s screenplay and attached Topher Grace to star. Universal tapped Shane Abbess to helm last year. Current script includes revises by Billy Ray (“State of Play”).

Oh no! Sorry, T-Dot. Although, I am sure that he simply dropped out of the project to focus on an even bigger, maybe, and better, maybe, project. Besides, that is Hollywood for you! One day you are in the next day you are AUF. In any case, there is no such thing as bad publicity, and someone (Topher Grace) just got their name published in Variety Magazine as part of a story about a major motion picture. Neat!

Meanwhile, I can’t help but feel somehow responsible for willing this amazing thing that exists into existence:

That’s great. We could obviously all use that. Although I do think it’s important to be honest in how you promote your product. Like, “limitless content”? Something tells me there is a very definite ceiling on the amount of content available through the Supafan Topher Grace iPhone app. Also, “from the beach, to the stage, to the big screen”? What stage? In any case, I am sure you guys already know the answer to that, since you downloaded this app to your phone before you even started reading this paragraph, and it definitely didn’t corrupt your phone and wipe the memory card clean whatsoever. Just a perfect and very legitimate piece of software.
