Over eight seasons and 200 episodes, That ’70s Show didn’t just launch the careers of Mila Kunis, Laura Prepon, Topher Grace, Danny Masterson, Wilmer Valderrama, and Ashton Kutcher. It also basked in the glow of already-established stars and stars on the rise who often made brief but memorable cameos. Check out some of the show’s memorable guest stars below, and flashback with That ’70s Show Mondays and Tuesdays starting at 6P on IFC.

1. Alice Cooper

Many guests have sat down in That ’70s Show‘s “circle” for a hang. In season three’s “Radio Daze” episode, heavy-metal/eye-liner icon Alice Cooper shows up during a game of D&D to say, “Let’s get out there and slay that dragon.”


2. Amy Adams

One of Adams’ earliest roles was on a season two episode of That ’70s Show where she played Kat Peterson, “the most popular girl in school,” who — against the odds — is making out with Hyde. Or as he puts it, “She’s slumming it. I’m loving it.”


3. Billy Dee Williams

Donna and Eric get couples therapy from Pastor Dan (Williams), partly because Eric is too obsessed with Star Wars. Well, “it’s the greatest movie of all time,” says Lando Calrissian himself.


4. Bruce Willis

Talk about weird. Demi Moore’s former husband (sporting a bad wig and a worse mustache) appears in a scene with Demi Moore’s then-boyfriend (Ashton Kutcher) to talk about getting girls pregnant and not wearing wedding rings. Yikes.


5. Don Knotts

Reprising his iconic role from Three’s Company, Knotts plays an eavesdropping landlord who thinks Fez and Jackie are going at it when they’re just making fruit salad.


6. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

He’s not the Rock this time — he’s Rocky Johnson, a low-rent, side-burned wrestler who wears a black leotard and pile-drives midgets in the ring in the season one episode “That Wrestling Show.” Eric’s a huge fan, but it’s Red (Kurtwood Smith) who ends up getting Rocky’s autograph.


7. Isaac Hayes

Famed musician and future South Park chef Isaac Hayes stopped by during season eight to provide the funky “Work Fez” theme and let everyone’s favorite foreign exchange student dance out his own personal Saturday Night Fever fantasy.


8. Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Before he kissed Zooey Deschanel in (500) Days of Summer, Joseph Gordon-Levitt locked lips with Topher Grace on That ’70s Show. Too bad Eric wasn’t into it. They would’ve made the cutest couple.


9. Lindsay Lohan

Sometime between Freaky Friday and her career meltdown, Lindsay Lohan filmed this season seven guest spot during which she portrayed Danielle, the love interest of both Fez and Kelso.


10. Gloria Gaynor

Who said that those who can’t teach? Clearly they didn’t know Mrs. Clark, Fez’s music teacher, who belts out Gaynor’s own double-platinum hit “I Will Survive” at the prom as a little pick-me-up.

Inauguration Alternative

Bill Murray On Repeat

It's a movie "Murray-thon" all-day Friday on IFC.

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Hank Azaria Gets Thrown A Curve Ball

Brockmire Premieres April 5 at 10P

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
