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.

Another Comic-Con International is in the can, and multiple nerdgasms were had by all – not least of which were about the Stan Against Evil roundtable discussion. Dana, Janet and John dropped a whole lotta information on what’s to come in Season 2 and what it’s like to get covered in buckets of demon goo. Here are the highlights.

Premiere Date!

Season 2 hits the air November 1 and picks up right where things left off. Consider this your chance to seamlessly continue your Halloween binge.

Character Deets!

Most people know that Evie was written especially for Janet, but did you know that Stan is based on Dana Gould’s dad? It’s true. But that’s where the homage ends, because McGinley was taken off the leash to really build a unique character.

Happy Accidents!

Improv is apparently everything, because according to Gould the funniest material happens on the fly. We bet the writers are totally cool with it.

Exposed Roots!

If Stan fans are also into Twin Peaks and Doctor Who, that’s no accident. Both of those cult classic genre benders were front of mind when Stan was being developed.

Trailer Treasure!

Yep. A new trailer dropped. Feast your eyes.

Catch up on Stan Against Evil’s first season on the IFC app before it returns November 1st on IFC.

Adulting Like You Mean It

Commuters makes its debut on IFC's Comedy Crib.

Posted by on

Jared Warner, Nick Ciavarella, and Tim Dean were once a part of Murderfist, a group of comedy writers, actors, producers, parents, and reluctant adults. Together with InstaMiniSeries’s Nikki Borges, they’re making their IFC Comedy Crib debut with the refreshingly-honest and joyfully-hilarious Commuters. The webseries follows thirtysomethings Harris and Olivia as they brave the waters of true adulthood, and it’s right on point.

Jared, Nick, Nikki and Tim were kind enough to answer a few questions about Commuters for us. Here’s a snippet of that conversation…

Commuters_106_MPX-1920x1080

IFC: How would you describe Commuters to a fancy network executive you met in an elevator?

Nick: Two 30-somethings leave the Brooklyn life behind, and move to the New Jersey suburbs in a forced attempt to “grow up.” But they soon find out they’ve got a long way to go to get to where they want to be.

IFC: How would you describe Commuters to a drunk friend of a friend you met in a bar?

Jared: It’s a show about how f*cking stupid people who think they are smart can be.

IFC: What’s your origin story? When did you all meet and how long have you been working together?

Jared: Nick, Tim, and I were all in the sketch group Murderfist since, what, like 2004? God. Anyway, Tim and Nick left the group to pursue other frivolous things, like children and careers, but we all enjoyed writing together and kept at it. We were always more interested in storytelling than sketch comedy lends itself to, which led to our webseries Jared Posts A Personal. That was a show about being in your 20s and embracing the chaos of being young in the city. Commuters is the counterpoint, i guess. Our director Adam worked at Borders (~THE PAST!!~) with Tim, came out to a Murderfist show once, and we’ve kept him imprisoned ever since.

IFC: What was the genesis of Commuters?

Tim: Jared had an idea for a series about the more realistic, less romantic aspects of being in a serious relationship.  I moved out of the city to the suburbs and Nick got engaged out in LA.   We sort of combined all of those facets and Commuters was the end result.

IFC: How would Harris describe Olivia?

Jared: Olivia is the smartest, coolest, hottest person in the world, and Harris can’t believe he gets to be with her, even though she does overreact to everything and has no chill. Like seriously, ease up. It doesn’t always have to be ‘a thing.’

IFC: How would Olivia describe Harris?

Nikki:  Harris is smart, confident with a dry sense of humor but he’s also kind of a major chicken shit…. Kind of like if Han Solo and Barney Rubble had a baby.

IFC: Why do you think the world is ready for this series?

Nikki:  I think this is the most accurate portrayal of what a modern relationship looks like. Expectations for what your life is ‘supposed to look like’ are confusing and often a let down but when you’re married to your best friend, it’s going to be ok because you will always find a way to make each other laugh.

IFC: Is the exciting life of NYC twentysomethings a sweet dream from which we all must awake, or is it a nightmare that we don’t realize is happening until it’s over?

Tim: Now that i’ve spent time living in the suburbs, helping to raise a two year old, y’all city folk have no fucking clue how great you’ve got it.

Nikki: I think of it similar to how I think about college. There’s a time and age for it to be glorious but no one wants to hang out with that 7th year senior. Luckily, NYC is so multifaceted that you can still have an exciting life here but it doesn’t have to be just what the twentysomethings are doing (thank god).

Jared: New York City is a garbage fire.

A Man Mansplains To Men

Why Baroness von Sketch Show is a must-see.

Posted by on

Mansplaining is when a man takes it upon himself to explain something to a woman that she already knows. It happens a lot, but it’s not going to happen here. Ladies, go ahead and skip to the end of this post to watch a free episode of IFC’s latest addition, Baroness von Sketch Show.

However, if you’re a man, you might actually benefit from a good mansplanation. So take a knee, lean in, and absorb the following wisdom.

No Dicks

Baroness von Sketch Show is made entirely by women, therefore this show isn’t focused on men. Can you believe it? I know what you’re thinking: how will we know when to laugh if the jokes aren’t viewed through the dusty lens of the patriarchy? Where are the thinly veiled penis jokes? Am I a bad person? In order: you will, nowhere, and yes.

Huge Balls

Did you know that there’s more to life than poop jokes, sex jokes, body part jokes? I mean, those things are all really good things, natch, and totally edgy. But Baroness von Sketch Show does something even edgier. It holds up a brutal funhouse mirror to our everyday life. This is a bulls**t world we made, fellas.

Oh Canada

After you watch the Canadian powerhouses of Baroness von Sketch Show and think to yourself “Dear god, this is so real” and “I’ve gotta talk about this,” do yourself a favor and think a-boot your options: Refrain from sharing your sage wisdom with any woman anywhere (believe us, she gets it). Instead, tell a fellow bro and get the mansplaining out of your system while also spreading the word about a great show.
