Lisa Robin Kelly portrays Laurie Forman, Eric's college drop-out sister who constantly torments him and his friends on That '70s Show. There is nothing in Lisa Robin Kelly's petite figure that reveals the strength and personality inside. The young actress craves empowering roles, and her new co-starring role on FOX's THAT '70s SHOW allows Lisa the freedom to be as sassy as she can be. The 24-year-old actress says she enjoys the energy and gratification of working in front of a live audience. In this blast-from-the-past comedy, Lisa portrays Laurie, Eric's older sister who is a manipulative, feline, daddy's girl with a Farrah Fawcett look. Aside from keeping busy with THAT '70s SHOW, Lisa has also guest-starred on numerous television series such as "The X Files and "Charmed." In addition to her television credits, Lisa has worked on several feature films. She was last seen on the big screen in the scathing coming of age comedy "Jawbreaker." She recently completed production on "Kill The Man" with Teri Garr, Luke Wilson, and Paula Devicq in which she plays Devicq's best friend Nan. Although Lisa is no stranger to working with seasoned actors, she came face to face with professional idol, James Earl Jones, while working on ShowTime's "Horton Foote's Alone" which stars Shelley Duvall and Ed Begley Jr. She also found gratification in the challenge of portraying a drug-addicted stripper in "Late Last Night" featuring Emilio Estevez. "I got the bug at age seven," says Lisa, and she went on to star in various productions in her hometown of Toledo, Ohio. After auditioning for the Chicago Academy of the Arts, Lisa and her mother relocated to Chicago where she was anxious to take on the world of acting and theater. Her experiences while at the performing arts high school only made her more hungry to begin a professional career as an actor. "The escapism of acting was very appealing to me," says Lisa. Upon graduation with emphasis in opera and theater she immediately found representation in Chicago but had her sights set on bigger seas and soon after decided to make the move to California. With a love for performing in musicals and studying dance, she maintains ambitions of Broadway, and with her traditional training in live stage acting and voice, the move from the silver screen to the Broadway stage may not be that far from Lisa's future. During her time off Lisa enjoys practicing yoga and entertaining her neighbors with her talents in karaoke. She also volunteers her time with philanthropic organizations that touch her heart such as Hollygrove, the Sierra Club, and PETA.



Don Stark portrays Bob Pinciotti, the annoyingly upbeat and nosy neighbor to the Formans on That '70s Show. Stark was born in New York City. During high school, he joined the drama department on a dare and actually got the role as Marvin Hutchins in "Dark of the Moon." It was at this time that he realized his love for acting. He went on to attend California State University, Northridge, and started out as a business major, but quickly switched to theater. Stark's successful acting career spans three decades. Most recently, he was a series regular on the sci-fi thriller "Time Cop" as tough and gritty Eugene Matuzek, a character essentially opposite of Bob Pinciotti on THAT '70s SHOW.
