The AU Film Society brought Topher Grace and his co-star Dan Fogler to AU students for a question-and-answer session in February. Grace and Fogler talked about everything from Grace’s name change from Christopher to Topher — Grace chalked it up to being fed up with people calling him Chris — to giving tips to aspiring student filmmakers about acting and producing.
They came to AU as part of the D.C. leg of their tour promoting the film Take Me Home Tonight, a coming-of-age comedy set in the 1980s and co-produced by Grace. As Matt Franklin, Grace plays a Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduate working at a video store as he contemplates his future.
The event was also sponsored by FINS.com, a network owned by The Wallstreet Journal dedicated to helping people find jobs in finance, technology, or sales & marketing.
