Five Favorite Films with Topher Grace

Summary

For a guy who got his break appearing on TV's That '70s Show, Topher Grace sure is obsessed with this '80s thing. In this week's new release Take Me Home Tonight -- which might superficially be summarized as That '80s Movie -- Grace, who co-wrote the story and produced, stars as Matt Franklin, a talented-but-aimless college grad adrift between a yuppie career and a dead-end video clerk job in the summer of 1988. Pining after his unattainable high school crush Tori (Teresa Palmer), Matt, his sister Wendy (Anna Faris), and his buddy Barry (Dan Fogler) crash a reunion party in LA's Valley -- thus setting in motion the kind of "all-in-one-night" adventure in which the characters work out their lives via an evening of raucous misdeeds. It's a film that proudly wears its "I Heart John Hughes" pin on the rolled-up sleeve of its sports blazer, a passion project that Grace has clearly had percolating for some time. Read on Grace's Five Favorite Films and a chat about the movie. Back to Article
