Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Actor Wilmer Valderrama first came to national attention as the odd yet lovable foreign exchange student Fez on the long-running sitcom, "That 70's Show" (Fox, 1998-2006). Appearing seemingly out of nowhere alongside future stars Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, Valderrama's quirky portrayal endeared him to his co-stars and fans alike. Clearly ambitious, the actor soon branched out with supporting turns in such films as "Summer Catch" (2001) and "Party Monster" (2003). An aspiring entrepreneur, he also invested in a pair of tony Los Angeles-based restaurants, Dolce and Geisha House.
