BREAKTHROUGH

Acclaimed actor TOPHER GRACE (Pastor Jason Noble) first caught the attention of audiences as one of the stars of the iconic television series That '70s Show, before going on to make his mark on the big screen in numerous films.

Topher recently wrapped Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman, opposite Adam Driver. This film chronicles the true story of an African-American detective in Colorado who infiltrated the KKK. Prior to that, Topher shot the feature Under the Silver Lake, opposite Andrew Garfield. The film is a noir crime thriller set against the backdrop of the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles.

Grace was recently seen in the David Michod Netflix black comedy, War Machine, opposite Brad Pitt. The film was based on Michael Hastings' book, The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America's War in Afghanistan, and follows General Glenn McMahon (Pitt), a four-star U.S. military general charged with commanding NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by his own hubris and a journalist's no-holds-barred expose.

Prior, Grace starred in the Sony Pictures Classics drama, Truth, opposite Robert Redford, Cate Blanchett, Dennis Quaid, and Elisabeth Moss. The film tells the true story of a group of journalists - with Topher portraying rebellious researcher, 'Mike Smith' - who uncover a conspiracy that would bring down President George W. Bush's presidency. The film had its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.

Grace recently made the move behind the camera and completed production as producer and star of the romantic musical comedy, Opening Night, directed by Isaac Rentz. The film features Anne Heche and Taye Diggs and follows a failed Broadway singer who now works as a production manager who must save opening night by wrangling his eccentric cast and crew.

On the big screen, Grace won the National Board of Review award for Breakthrough Performance by an Actor, as well as a New York Film Critics award, for his roles in In Good Company and P.S. in 2004. As a member of the ensemble cast in Steven Soderbergh's Traffic, he also won a Screen Actors Guild Award in 2001.

Additional film credits include Christopher Nolan's Interstellar; Gary Marshall's ensemble Valentine's Day, opposite Anne Hathaway, Bradley Cooper, Jamie Foxx and others; Sam Raimi's Spiderman 3; Robert Luketic's Win a Date with Tad Hamilton; Mike Newell's Mona Lisa Smile, opposite Julia Roberts; and Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven and Ocean's Twelve, among many other memorable roles including, most recently, American Ultra, opposite Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart.

On the small screen, along with That '70s Show, he has also appeared in Curtis Hanson's Golden Globe-winning TV film Too Big to Fail, for HBO. He also appeared in The Beauty Inside, a 2012 social film developed by Intel and Toshiba. Directed by Drake Doremus and co-starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, the film is broken up into six filmed episodes interspersed with interactive storytelling that all takes place on the main character's Facebook timeline. Topher won a Daytime Emmy in the category of Outstanding New Approaches - Original Daytime Program or Series.

In 2014, Grace made his Off-Broadway debut in Paul Weitz' acclaimed Lonely, I'm Not, opposite Olivia Thirlby, for Second Stage.

Grace grew up in Darien, Connecticut and currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
