it's very difficult for men with boyish faces to last long term in that industry. they can't exactly portray Big Man in Authoritah while looking like a 14y.o.
there are too many examples to name, but think about all of these "young" men who have looked like children more than half of their lives.
the only one i can think of who has been able to run with it is mr. doogie howser.

He's actually the kind of actor who may do his most high profile work after age 45. He could clean up playing nemesis type characters, like the principal in a Ferris Bueller remake.

Topher just tried to be a wise guy in shitty comedies, thrillers and horror films. He’s never been elegant a day in his life. He probably turned down or ignored hundreds of gay roles.

I always saw his 70s Show character as sort of a Shaggy/Jughead type. But maybe he was an Archie (pre-CW). Either way, not a sex symbol.
He could have been a Joseph Gordon-Levitt type. Their agents probably sent them on a lot of the same casting calls. But you can tell just from R18 that Levitt is a more interesting performer. He gets a little bit of color and nuance into a minor scene and Grace is just a generic sitcom type despite having the starring role.

I agree, but I'd also suggest that the vagaries of the industry have much to do with it. If Grace was a breakout sitcom star in the 70s or 80s, for example, he could have had a long, lucrative career of moving between one network sitcom, a cop show, a medical procedural, another sitcom, and a host of TV movies over the next 15-20 years. Lots and lots of guest spots on other shows. (Feature films, of course, probably wouldn't have touched him.) It was a smaller talent pool with more of a reliance on established, friendly faces.
TV is enormous now, but the game has changed. The Tony Danza and Kelsey Grammar types of TV stardom are becoming a thing of the past. (You may not care for either of those gentlemen, but they've both had insanely long and successful runs on different sitcoms spanning decades.)

He was cast in That 70s Show with literally nothing on his resume. He got the role because the daughter of the show's producers went to the same high school as Topher and they saw him in one of the high school's plays. That was the sum total of his acting experience before being cast in a major network sitcom. Talk about falling ass-backwards into good fortune.
Given those circumstances, he's done amazingly well.

Ryan, Giorgio, and Daveed are on again/off again.

He always played a smug little creep, which worked well for when he was young but has been harder as he got older. He's not that handsome facially, so when he worked out and got a more buff physique it didn't really go anywhere for him professionally.
What could happen for him, if he works at losing the smirk, is to become a character actor the way Timothy Hutton and Henry Thomas did. Neither of them are that handsome, but they are good actors (Thomas grew into becoming one), and though they've not been big stars, they've worked very steadily since they first appeared on the scene. He would be good playing district attorneys or paper-pushers, or even dads in teen comedies. but he does have to work at losing the smirk he had when he was younger.

R78 the thing is, he actually did socialise on THAT 70s SHOW, just very selectively - and who could blame him? He was just a teen plucked from obscurity, forced to work with a bunch of insane and fairly nasty people.
Nonetheless was known to be close to Lisa Robin Kelly, being the only one to notice and care about her growing addiction issues and petition to get her help (that plea falling on deaf ears, unfortunately). He was the only person of that cast & crew known to act like a real friend to poor Lisa.
Since T7S he has been close friends with Joseph Gordon-Levitt (apparently known as ‘Joey’, to Topher). As teens two used to frequently stay over at each other’s family homes, and in their twenties at each other’s apartments. As they tell it, they spent a lot of time together; just the two of them making auteur films and mixtapes, eating at diners, or going to see movies. They each describe their friendship in very sweet, affectionate terms as a valuable lifelong refuge from the craziness of the business (listen to Topher’s podcast episode below for more on that).
Given what we know and suspect about Joseph’s sexuality, of course this bond does arouse suspicion...

I could be wrong, but I always got the impression that he left "That '70s Show" in the last season because he thought he was above it, and wanted a career as an "artiste." He probably thought his small role in "Traffic" gave him some indie cred. It took him awhile, but he has managed to nab supporting roles in big-name movies with big-name directors (Christopher Nolan, Spike Lee, etc.), though he's never really been leading man material. He does come from wealth—he's an east coast boarding school boy. Chloë Sevigny, who I frankly think lies about how much cash her family did/didn't have, was his babysitter while the two were growing up in WASPy Darien, CT.

[quote]I could be wrong, but I always got the impression that he left "That '70s Show" in the last season because he thought he was above it, and wanted a career as an "artiste." He probably thought his small role in "Traffic"
He admitted that he left because he wanted to do movies however he wasn't just in Traffic.
He was also in Win a Date with Tad Hamilton, In Good Company and another film called P.S. in the course of a year or so. (The only one I remembered was Win a Date with Tad Hamilton but he had solid co-stars in the others.) He later landed a role as Eddie Brock/Venom in Raimi's "Spider-Man 3" but didn't get the best reviews for Spider-Man.
That's when he went the character actor route because he could afford to since he was apparently good at saving his money from That 70s Show.
That's not a unique story. Many actors have tried to fly to the sun, failed and then because they really love acting just kept on doing character roles in things they liked.

R9 funny you mention that. My Doc and therapist both think I have some mild form of ASD, and looking back for me Eric Forman was the only relatable character on THAT 70s SHOW....
R18 Topher probably wasn’t the same after that scene. Bear in mind JGL was his irl best friend at the time, and neither had kissed a man onscreen before (maybe not even offscreen, either(. That has to be a nerve-wracking situation for an actor, however you feel about it.
R139 the poor reviews for SPIDER-MAN III had little to do with Topher. There was a small contingent of comic fanboys who bitched that Eddie Brock was physically meant to be a buff bodybuilder type (hence the later casting of Tom Hardy) and a friend less than a rival to Peter, but in fact most regular movie-goers (who were not invested in the comicbooks) didn’t care about this change and felt Topher’s Eddie worked well enough for the story & Universe. As someone who read the books but also liked the Raimi movies, I felt it was an interesting fresh take on the character and the dynamic. Topher & Tobey had good chemistry, and interesting sexual tension imo.
Don’t really get the hate for Topher, all around. He seems like a down-to-Earth, responsible, regular actor who just wants to show up for work. Sure, he was born into money, but he sure put in work and effort in an inhospitable environment all through his twenties to make his own. But maybe his privilege and his normality is the main issue for DL, in conjunction with his lack of body.

I'd never really thought about how many scumbags were actually in the main cast of That 70s Show. I don't know if leaving it early or not hanging put with the rest of the cast hurt his career but good on him tbh. You can only turn down so many invitations to underage drug fuelled rape parties at the Scientology temple before you decide its not worth being in an early 2000s Fox comedy.

I didn't have a problem with the film, personally. The question was, why he shifted his career. He heard the criticism (that he was miscast) and felt like he had to respond to it multiple times. Either way, he's still listed as one of the worst casting choices of all time. He has talked pretty openly about this.

“I’m not gay, JC....”
*chuckles* “You sound just like Lance.”

@Topher's agent: would love to see him play a substantial gay role (lead or supporting), with physical skin and intimacy on show. It's one archetypal box he hasn't yet ticked, and he's going to age out fairly soon if he doesn't get on it. But how to cast him?
