Who Remembers That Seth Meyers' Little Brother Replaced Eric and Kelso on 'That 70's Show'?

By Dustin Rowles | Seriously Random Lists | January 30, 2014 | Comments ()


Seth Meyers had not yet taken over as co-anchor on Weekend Update in 2005 when his younger brother, Josh Meyers, took on the role of Randy on the final season of That 70’s Show, so this little piece of trivia may have missed you. In fact, so few people actually watched the final season of That 70’s Show that many may not have even realized that the characters of Topher Grace and Ashton Kutcher had essentially been replaced by Randy, who was Donna’s new love interest, a co-worker of Steven’s at the record store, and basically a douchey, yuppie representation of the 80s. No offense to Josh Meyers, but the only reason that he’s not mentioned as one of the worst Cousin Olivers in television history is because so few people watched That 70’s Show in its final season.


Ironically, before That 70’s Show, Josh Meyers was actually a cast member on MadTV, which aired opposite Saturday Night Live during Seth Meyers’ early run. IN fact, he joked about it in a 2003 when Seth appeared on Weekend Update to talk to his father and told him to turn off MADtv and pay attention to him.

You may also recognize him from Date Movie, as the Napoleon Dynamite and Owen Wilson from Wedding Crashers impersonators.



Where’s Josh Meyers now? Believe it or not, his long-time comedy partner is Ike Barinholtz, who plays Morgan on The Mindy Project, and Josh could recently be seen on The Mindy Project.


He’s also the voice of Perfect Man in Seth Meyers’ current animates series, The Awesomes.

    I still remember the MadTV Abercrombie skit and he was great in it.

  • kirbyjay

    The stripper sucked too.

  • mediafiend

    Saw Josh on Broadway as the fireman in Pee-Wee's last show. Small role, but he was funny.

  • Margrete

    How I hated season 8 of That '70s Show. All that was good and fun about the show was just thrown out the window, into the gutter and stepped on repeatedly. Jackie ended up with Fez (?!?!!), and it broke my young zenmaster heart.

  • kirbyjay

    My heart is still broken! The worst......the worst......
    an interesting side note. I used to check in on a T7S fansite occasionally and one of the commenters called Danny Masterson's radio show "Feel My Heat" and asked how he felt about S8 and Jackie and Fez.
    He said he hated it, they all did, but they had no say. He thought Jackie and Hyde should have ended up together too, because he loved that storyline.
    I also heard that they were paid gobs of money to do the last season and Wilmer Valderama would only come back if he could get the girl in the end ( of the show, not her end) so they sacrificed the JH storyline for horndog Fez.

    "Don't vote for Pedro."
    Now THAT is comedy!

  • salamanderguy

    Ike Barinholtz and Josh Meyers were also in this madtv sketch...


  • Yeah, I remember thinking "hey is that guy doing both sketch shows?" but shortly realizing it had to be a relative, otherwise the guy invented teleportation (since the shows were on opposite coasts). Didn't really make the 70s Show connection because I never watched it (the entire show, not just the last season).

    And now I just learned that "teleportation" is not in my browser's spell check dictionary. Seems like an oversight.

  • Bert_McGurt

    I had no clue. On a related note, I was watching Spanish-dubbed Beverly Hills Cop in a hotel a couple of days ago, and who did I see as one of the bad guys?

  • HOLY. SHIT. I remember his face from the movie, but I only NOW put two and two together.

  • BendinIntheWind

    I will embarrassedly raise my hand and say, yes, I do remember him. Ugh.

  • Miss Kate

    Josh Meyers was also on MadTV for awhile, too. I remember watching him and then turning on SNL, seeing his brother and being very confused.

  • Joey.blowey

    Josh Meyers is no Ted McGinley and that last season was no Happy Days.

    How'd that movie career work out for you Topher?

  • Erin S

    Oh, I remembered. Randy is the reason I had an inexplicable dislike of Seth Meyers, until I realized 1. Why he upset me (THANKS FOR A SHITTY LAST SEASON, RANDY) and 2. They were two different people. Now Seth and I are good, and let's just say I'm glad Mindy and Adam the prostitute didn't work out.

  • kirbyjay

    As the resident expert on That 70's Show, I am here to tell you that there was no Season 8 of That 70's Show.
    Eric and Donna went to the University of Wisconsin
    Kelso moved to Chicago to be near his daughter and work in the Playboy Club
    Jackie and Hyde reunited and eventually married
    Fez went back to Bananaland and became Mayor
    THE END!!!!
    and don't argue with me.

  • Erin S

    I will not argue, if just because the idea of Jackie ending up with Fez instead of Hyde still makes my eye twitch and fills my soul with rage.
