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.

Watch the Yo! IFC Acts Movie Marathon Memorial Day Weekend.

Memorial Day weekend: how to celebrate? Nothing quite says “screw spring—let’s do summer” like blockbuster movies starring rappers who ditched lucrative music careers in order to become actors. It happened a lot, remember? Especially in and around the ’90s. Will Smith, Eminem, Ice Cube, Ice-T, Marky Mark Wahlberg, Ludacris…icons with the hubris to try the silver screen instead and have it totally work out.

But what if more rappers had made the leap? That’s a rhetorical question—movies (and life) would’ve been better, obviously. To prove it, here are some movies that totally would’ve been more memorable with rappers.

The Godfather

Starring Biggie, not Brando.
Godfather-BIG

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory

Only Coolio could improve upon Gene Wilder’s performance.
Coolio-Wonka

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory

Billy Elliot, with a dose of Missy Elliott.
Missy-Billy-Elliott

Robin Hood: Price of Thieves

Low hanging fruit, Hollywood.
Robin-Hood-and-Lil-Jon

And of course…

Kanye-of-The-Lambs

See NONE of those movies and a whole bunch of real ones this Memorial Day weekend on IFC’s rapper-filled movie marathon.

“Lucy, put supper on the stove, my dear, because this ballgame is over!”

Brockmire has officially closed out its rookie season. Miss the finale episode? A handful of episodes? The whole blessed season?? You can see it all from the beginning, starting right here.

And you should get started, because every minute you spend otherwise will be a minute spent not living your best life. That’s right, there are very important life lessons that Brockmire hid in plain sight—lessons that, when applied thoughtfully, can improve every aspect of your awesome existence. Let’s dive into some sage nuggets from what we call the Book of Jim.

Life Should Be Spiked, Not Watered Down.

That’s not just a fancy metaphor. As Brockmire points out, water tastes “awful. 70% of the water is made up of that shit?” Life is short, water sucks, live like you mean it.

There Are Only Three Types of People

“Poor people, rich people and famous people. Rich people are just poor people with money, so the only worthwhile thing is being famous.” So next time your rich friends act all high and mighty, politely remind them that they’re worthless in the eyes of even the most minor celebrities.

There’s Always A Reason To Get Out Of Bed

And 99% of the time that reason is the urge to pee. It’s nature’s way of saying “seize the day.”

There’s More To Life Than Playing Games

“Baseball can’t compete with p0rnography. Nothing can.” Nothing you do or ever will do can be more important to people than p0rn. Get off your high horse.

A Little Empathy Goes A Long Way

Especially if you’ve taken someone else’s Plan B by mistake.

Our Weaknesses Can Be Our Greatest Strengths

Tyrion Lannister said something similar. Hard to tell who said it with more colorful profanity. Wise sentiments all around.

Big Things Come To Those Who Wait

When you’re looking for a sign, the universe will drop you a big one. You’re the sh*t, universe.

And Of Course…

Need more life lessons from the Book of Jim? Catch up on Brockmire on the IFC App.

Mommie Dearest Is On Repeat All Mothers Day Long On IFC

The cult-classic movie Mommie Dearest is a game-changer. If you’ve seen it even just once (but come on, who sees it just once?), then you already know what we’re talking about.

But if you haven’t seen it, then let us break it down for you. Really quick, we promise, we’ll even list things out to spare you the reading of a paragraph:

1. It’s the 1981 biopic based on the memoir of Christina Crawford, Hollywood icon Joan Crawford’s adopted daughter.
2. Faye Dunaway plays Joan. And boy does she play her. Loud and over-reactive.
3. It was intended as a drama, but…
4. Waaaaaay over-the-top performances and bargain-basement dialogue rendered it an accidental comedy.
5. It’s a cult classic, and you’re the last person to see it.

Not sold? Don’t believe it’s going to change your life? Ok, maybe over-the-top acting isn’t your thing, or perhaps you don’t like the lingering electricity of a good primal scream, or Joan Crawford is your personal icon and you can’t bear to see her cast in such a creepy light.

But none of that matters.

What’s important is that seeing this movie gives you permission to react to minor repeat annoyances with unrestrained histrionics.

That there is a key moment. Is she crazy? Yeah. But she’s also right. Shoulder nipples are horrible, wire hangers are the worst, and yelling about it feels strangely justified. She did it, we can do it. Precedent set. You’re welcome.

So what else can we yell about? Channel your inner Joan and consider the following list offenses when choosing your next meltdown.

Improperly Hung Toilet Paper

Misplaced Apostrophes

Coldplay at Karaoke

Dad Jokes

Gluten Free Pizza

James Franco

The list of potential pedestrian grievances is actually quite daunting, but when IFC airs Mommie Dearest non-stop for a full day, you’ll have 24 bonus hours to mull it over. 24 bonus hours to nail that lunatic shriek. 24 bonus hours to remember that, really, your mom is comparatively the best.

So please, celebrate Mother’s Day with Mommie Dearest on IFC and at IFC.com. And for the love of god—NO WIRE HANGERS EVER.
