Long after the ’70s actually happened, Fox cashed in on the popular decade with the hit series That ’70s Show. The sitcom aired from August 1998 to May 2006 and featured a stellar cast and launched the careers of quite a few popular stars. Aside from the incredible main stars, quite a few familiar faces also made an appearance through the show’s eight seasons. From big name stars to those just beginning their career, here are 12 celebrities you forgot appeared on That ’70s Show:
12. Joseph Gordon – Levitt
Joseph Gordon-Levitt has had an incredible career already, and has proven he has great range as an actor, but like so many others he got his start with small roles on television. After appearing in four episodes of Roseanne, and taking on small movie roles, he then began to break out in fame thanks to his starring role in 3rd Rock From the Sun. Thanks to 3rd Rock From the Sun and That ’70s Show sharing a production company, Gordon-Levitt made a guest appearance on the series as a popular rich kid who becomes friends with Eric named Buddy. In the end, Eric is taken by surprise when Buddy kisses him and reveals he wants to be more than friends. It was the series’ only attempt at introducing an LGBTQ character, and was one of the first times a gay male kiss appeared on primetime North American television. So, while Gordon-Levitt only appeared for one episode, he certainly made his mark.
