Q: I was a fan of Topher Grace on That '70s Show. Any chance at all he will return to TV?

—Molly McCall, La Crosse, Wis.

For now that is a big fat "no." Since leaving that sitcom, Grace, 33, has had a lot of success with films such as Spider-Man 3, Predators, Valentine's Day, his latest release The Double with Richard Gere, and the upcoming The Wedding with Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton.

"I am young and I really like the learning of it," says the New York City-born actor, who has never taken an "official" acting class. "For The Double, I liked all the learning I did in terms of shooting [a gun], Russian dialect and FBI stuff. I did a romantic comedy this summer, and it was De Niro and Diane Keaton, and they have very different acting styles. Everything is a learning experience if you are doing different things all the time."

To further his goal of turning the roles he selects into a master class, he plays both good guys and bad guys and stars in both comedies and dramas. "I know my agents hate it, and it would be much better if I just did romantic comedies or just decided on one thing to do," he says. "I went right from Valentine's Day into Predators. I went to the screening of Valentine's Day with blood under my nails."
