Character Bio

Eric Forman photo
Eric Albert Forman (born May 18, 1959) is a fictional character and the male lead on Fox Network's That '70s Show from season one through seven, played by Topher Grace.

The character is based on the adolescence of show creator Mark Brazill. Most of the show takes place at the Formans' home, particularly in the basement, where he and his five friends hang out. He has a doting mother with impending separation anxiety and menopause (Kitty Forman), a crabby, strict, war-veteran father (Red Forman), a promiscuous older sister (Laurie Forman), and his best friend who later becomes his foster brother (Steven Hyde). He was the program's main protagonist until he was written out due to Grace's departure from the series. However, despite Eric's absence, he is frequently mentioned in Season 8. He makes a cameo appearance in the final episode titled "That '70s Finale".

Eric is a nice guy at heart. He is also generally geeky, physically weak, and somewhat clumsy. He is a smart-aleck teenager with a lightning-fast wit and a sarcastic and deadpan sense of humor.
