If someone told you in 1998 that a series about pot-smoking, bell bottom-wearing teens in Wisconsin would produce two of the next decade's biggest stars, you probably wouldn't believe them. And if they told you Kelso, the dumb pretty boy, and Jackie, the spoiled rich girl, were the two destined for superstardom, you'd definitely think they were joking. Now Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis will have a chance to reminisce about their humble beginnings when the cast of That '70s Show reunites during Fox's 25th Anniversary Special.
Kunis and Kutcher will be joined by former castmates Laura Prepon and Wilmer Valderrama for the special, which airs April 22. So what about the rest of the cast? Earlier, Hollywood.com took a look at what they're up to today, and it's pretty obvious why Lisa Robin Kelly won't be returning. Topher Grace didn't leave the show on good terms, but what about Danny Masterson? Though he hasn't been acting much recently, it sounds like a great opportunity to plug his restaurants.
Kutcher and Kunis aren't the only big stars returning to Fox. The two-hour special will also feature Gillian Anderson and David Duchovney of The X-Files, Gabrielle Carteris, Shannen Doherty, Jason Priestley and Ian Ziering from Beverly Hills, 90210, Christina Applegate, David Faustino, Ed O’Neill and Katey Sagal from Married…With Children, and stars from the network's other big hits.

The God of Legion secular Hollywood’s latest Biblically-inspired action flick is old-school an angry spiteful Almighty with a penchant for Old Testament theatrics. Fed up with humanity’s decadent warmongering ways He’s decided to pull the plug on the whole crazy experiment and start over from scratch.
Fortunately for us the God of Legion is also a rather lazy fellow. Instead of doing the apocalyptic work himself and wiping us out with a giant flood which worked perfectly well last time He opts to delegate the task to His army of angels — a questionable strategy that starts to fall apart when the archangel charged with leading the planned extermination Michael (Paul Bettany) refuses to comply.
Michael who unlike his boss still harbors affection for our sorry species abandons his post and descends to earth where inside the swollen belly of Charlie (Adrianne Palicki) an unwed mother-to-be working as a waitress in an out-of-the-way diner sits humanity’s lone hope for survival. Why is this particular baby so important? Is it the one destined to lead us to victory over Skynet? Heaven knows — Legion reveals little details its script devoid of actual scripture. What is clear is that God’s celestial hitmen want the kid whacked before it’s born.
But Michael won’t let humanity fall without a fight. Armed with a Waco-sized arsenal of assault weapons he hunkers down with the diner’s patrons a largely superfluous collection of thinly-sketched caricatures from various demographic groups led by Dennis Quaid as the diner’s grizzled owner Tyrese Gibson as a hip-hop hustler and Lucas Black as a simple-minded country boy.
Together they mount a heroic final stand against hordes of angels who’ve taken possession of “weak-willed” humans turning kindly old grandmas and mild-mannered ice cream vendors into snarling ravenous foul-mouthed beasts. They descend upon the ramshackle diner in a series of full-frontal assaults commanded by the archangel Gabriel (Kevin Durand) the George Pickett of End of Days generals.
Beneath its superficial religious facade Legion is really just a run-of-the-mill zombie flick a Biblical I Am Legend. Bettany an actor accustomed to smaller dramatic roles in films like A Beautiful Mind and The Da Vinci Code looks perfectly at ease in his first major action role wielding machine guns and bowie knives with equal aplomb. Conversely first-time director Scott Stewart a former visual effects artist does little to prove himself worthy of such a promotion serving up some impressive CGI work but not much else worthy of note.
