Hey, What’s Up With Topher Grace

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

Jay Mohr is currently doing promotion for a book he wrote with his wife about parenting, because if there is one person that I would definitely look to for fun and useful advice about raising a human child, it is the perpetually dissatisfied and painfully unfunny former spokesman for TurboTax. On an episode of The View this week, he related a charming (UGH) anecdote about wearing adult diapers with his wife…because of something to do with potty training his child? Gross. In the clip, which you can watch at the link above, he is drenched in flopsweat and looks like he needs to make an emergency visit to the Cocaine Repair Shop. “My cocaine is broken! I can’t turn it off!” And he finishes the whole thing with a Brendan Fraser clap for himself. “Let’s give me an awkward round of applause for my nightmare diaper story.” Yikes. I avoided posting anything about this all day because it simply made me TOO SAD, but I do think that it is important in this life to confront the things that terrify you–becoming anything like and/or just plain seeing Jay Mohr–because that is how you deny them their power and regain control of your life.

But enough about the human desperation incarnate that is Jay Mohr. Unfortunately, we now know what is up with him. What is up with Topher Grace?

With only seven and a half weeks left until the release of Topher Grace’s Predators, we can expect there to be lots of publicity from Grace Camp (like base camp, but for Topher Grace). This week, we have a new audio interview with Topher about the movie from Collider. Listen here.

But it is not all work for Topher. It never is! He was seen out at Voyeur, whatever THAT is, along with many other Hollywood celebrities, including Paris Hilton and Dane Cook. Check out these cool photos from the event. Or just the evening? Sometimes with celebrities, not being one myself, it is hard for me to tell if it is a special occasion or just their regular life. Hahaha! Well, that’s just how it goes, I guess.


Neat! I wonder what he talked about while he was hanging out. I know, I know, NONE OF MY BUSINESS!

In addition to the cool paparazzi photos, check out this cool paparazzi video:

I feel like if you were videotaping someone who you planned to MURDER, it would not look that much different than this video. Sometimes you do have to wonder about the world we live in! I guess the paparazzi are just giving the people what they want, but why do the people want that? Sometimes this world we live in really makes you wonder.

Meanwhile, this is more speculation than HARD JOURNALISM (which is what this column thrives upon), but Entertainment Weekly suggests Topher Grace would be a great casting choice for a possible upcoming Beatles movie to be directed by Liam Gallagher.

I’m assuming that since DiLello’s memoir was based off the waning years of the Beatles — he worked there in the late ’60s — they’ll have to cast on the older side. For some reason, I’m seeing a couple faces: Topher Grace and Peter Sarsgaard.

I know this isn’t a serious job offer or anything. It’s just a writer on the Internet ruminating about who he would cast if he was in charge of casting this movie (which may or may not ever get made). But it is fun to think about these things! I wonder who would play John Lennon?! I think it should be Paul Rudd.

And, of course, That ’70s Show remains popular in syndication.

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