Ashton Kutcher played Michael Kelso, a pretty boy who’s not that bright.
Ashton Kutcher found more fame after starring on “That ’70s Show” when he married actress Demi Moore in 2005 — and when they split in 2011. He also has some big screen success in movies like “What Happens in Vegas” and “No Strings Attached.” Later, he found his way back to his roots. In 2012, he started dating former on-screen love Mila Kunis; they wed in 2015 and now have two kids, Wyatt and Dimitri. Ashton, an avid investor with interests in Uber and Bitcoin, revisited sitcom life when he took over for Charlie Sheen on “Two and a Half Men” from 2011 to 2015. He also starred on “The Ranch” from 2016 to 2020 with former “That ’70s Show” co-star Danny Masterson.
Spoiled teen Jackie Burkhart was played by Mila Kunis.
Mila Kunis balanced serious acting roles (in projects like “Black Swan”) with fun rom-coms (movies including “Friends with Benefits” and “Bad Moms”) after starring on “That ’70s Show.” She also continued to voice Meg Griffin on “Family Guy,” a job she’s had since 1999. She married former co-star Ashton Kutcher — who was her first real-life kiss and on-screen kiss — in 2015. They have two kids together. Before Ashton, Mila had a lengthy relationship with former child star Macaulay Culkin.
WIlmer Valderrama played flirty foreign exchange student Fez.
Wilmer Valderrama spent many years post-“That ’70s Show” in high-profile celebrity relationships, most notably with Demi Lovato from 2010 to 2016, but he’s since settled down. Wilmer — who previously dated Mandy Moore, Lindsay Lohan and Ashlee Simpson — got engaged to Amanda Pacheco in late 2020 and in February 2021, they welcomed their first child, daughter Nakano Oceana. He’s acted steadily in movies and TV shows since wrapping “That ’70s Show” and notably reunited with Danny Masterson and Ashton Kutcher for a few episodes of their Netflix show “The Ranch” between 2016 and 2017. He’s been starring on “NCIS” as Special Agent Nicholas Torres since 2016.

Laura Prepon’s most notable post-“That ’70s Show” role was as Alex Vause, a prisoner on the Netflix show “Orange Is the New Black.” In addition to her acting roles, she also wrote a book, penning “The Stash Plan” about her organic diet and digestive issues in 2016. Laura has also taken on the role of mom, welcoming two children — a son and a daughter — with actor Ben Foster, whom she married in 2018.
Danny Masterson (right) played anti-establishment guy Steven Hyde.
Danny Masterson thrived on sitcoms after he wrapped his role as Steven Hyde on “That ’70s Show.” He starred on “Men at Work” from 2012 to 2014 and on “The Ranch” with Ashton Kutcher from 2016 to 2018. His career hit a wall in March 2017 when the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed it was looking into claims that the actor had sexually assaulted multiple women, which led to his ouster from his Netflix show. His legal troubles didn’t end there. In 2019, Danny — who’s been married to model-actress Bijou Phillips, with whom he has a daughter, since 2009 — was sued, along with the Church of Scientology, by four women alleging stalking and harassment related to assault allegations against him. In 2020, he was arrested and charged with three counts of rape for incidents that allegedly occurred between 2001 and 2003. He’s maintained his innocence and pleaded not guilty. If convicted, he faces up to 45 years in prison.
Lisa Robin Kelly played Eric’s sister, Laurie Forman, on seasons 1 to 3.
Lisa Robin Kelly (seen here in a 2012 mugshot) had her fair share of legal issues following her 2003 exit from the show. In 2010, she got a DUI and in 2012, she was arrested for corporal injury upon a spouse, which she denied; charges were never formally filed. In 2013, she checked into a rehab facility and days later died from accidental drug intoxication.
Debra Jo Rupp (left) played Kitty Forman, Eric’s mom.
Debra Jo Rupp is another “That ’70s Show” alum who was tapped to appear on “The Ranch,”appearing on a dozen episodes between 2017 and 2020. She’s also popped up on “This Is Us” (pictured) and in 2021 appeared on several episodes of “WandaVision.” Debra Jo has also continued to act on stage in productions including “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “Annapurna.”
Tommy Chong played Leo, a hippie and World War II veteran.
After “That ’70s Show” wrapped, in 2008, Tommy Chong reunited with Cheech Marin and started touring again as “Cheech and Chong” — and they’ve worked together ever since. Cheech even appeared in Tommy’s debut dance when he competed on “Dancing With the Stars” in 2014. The marijuana advocate has had a number of health problems in recent years. In 2012, he announced that he had prostate cancer and was using hemp oil as a treatment. His cancer was mostly eliminated, but in 2015, he was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. In 2019, he announced he was cancer free.
Donna’s mother, Midge Pinciotti, was played by Tanya Roberts (far left).
Once “That ’70s Show” wound down, Tanya Roberts didn’t act much, appearing on just a few television shows in 2005. On Christmas Eve 2020, the former Bond girl and “Charlie’s Angels” star was hospitalized after suddenly getting sick at home. She died at 65 on Jan. 4, 2021, after becoming critically ill from a urinary tract infection that developed into a blood infection.
Donna’s father, Bob Pinciotti, was played by Don Stark (right).
Don Stark has acted steadily since “That ’70s Show” wrapped, but with no role has kept him as busy as Bob Pinciotti. His biggest part since was on episodes of “Hit the Floor” that aired between 2013 and 2018. He more recently filmed a pilot for “Duke of the Valley,” which was announced in 2020 and also had Caitlyn Jenner attached to appear.
Eric’s dad, Red Forman, was played by Kurtwood Smith (middle).
Kurtwood Smith still maintains a busy acting and voice acting schedule. In recent years, he reunited with his old co-stars on “The Ranch” and voiced characters on shows including “Rick and Morty” and “Star Trek: Lower Deck.”
