That '80s Movie: Topher Grace Rewinds the Clock for 'Take Me Home Tonight'

If Topher Grace seems a natural fit in Take Me Home Tonight, an ’80s-themed coming-of-age comedy in which he plays an underachieving M.I.T. grad stuck in a dead-end job at the mall, the reasons could be twofold.
 
For one, Grace, 32 – who chose the nickname “Topher” over his birth name, Christopher – starred for eight years in That ’70s Show, the TV comedy in which he played Eric Forman, a bright but directionless teen hanging out with his hapless friends and struggling to find his way in the world. Matt Franklin, his character in Tonight, could be Eric a decade removed.
