Topher Grace and Dan Fogler

AU Film Society and Think Talk brought Topher Grace (Spiderman 3) and Dan Fogler (Kung Fu Panda) to American University to promote their new film Take Me Home Tonight

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, a network owned by The Wallstreet Journal dedicated to helping people find jobs in finance, technology, or sales & marketing.
