  1. Wilmer Valderrama is truly living the American Dream. He is best known for his role as 'Fez,' on the hit series "That 70's Show," but since the show's completion Wilmer has been making a splash on the big screen, and is the creator, producer and host of the hit MTV show, "Yo Momma," soon to be seen in its third season.

    Wilmer's film credits include "Fast Food Nation," for Fox Searchlight, directed by Richard Linklater, starring opposite Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, and Catalina Sandino Moreno; and the 2006 holiday feature "Unaccompanied Minors" for Warner Bros., a film about a group of middle-school students who end up stranded at Hoover International Airport. He was seen in the Sundance 2006 hit film "The Darwin Awards," a dark comedy directed by Finn Taylor, starring Winona Ryder and Joseph Fiennes and is starring as the voice of Latino hero 'Manny Garcia,' in "Handy Manny," an animated series on the Disney Channel.

    Soon he will begin production on the feature film version of "CHiPs" for Warner Bros., in which he'll star as 'Ponch.' It was recently announced that Wilmer's production company, WV Enterprises is developing "PartyBuddys" with production partner Universal Pictures. The project is based on the life stories of James King and Jason Roefaro, who founded the New York company "PartyBuddys," which offers its clients a type of fast-pass to a celebrity lifestyle for a night.

    Wilmer also can be seen in the indie film "El Muerto," directed by Brian Cox and based on the successful comic book created by Javier Hernandez. Wilmer stars as 'Diego de la Muerte,' a 21 year old, who is abducted, sacrificed and resurrected by the Aztec Gods of Death and Destiny.

    Wilmer had a stint in the Los Angeles Times critic's choice play "Blackout," which is adapted from the feature film "Drunks." The play gives an in-depth portrayal of an AA meeting. In April, 2005 Wilmer performed in the Actor's Fund of America one-performance only all-star reading of the Paramount Pictures screenplay "Sunset Boulevard," directed by Peter Hunt. He starred opposite Anjelica Huston and Sir Ben Kingsley. He recently completed filming the Wim Wenders produced short film "La Torcedura," in which he plays the lead 'Jose,' who dreams about proposing to his girlfriend to find she has been setting him up to be murdered.

    Wilmer lent his voice to the character of 'Rodrigo' in the feature film "Clifford's Really Big Movie," in which he played alongside John Ritter. Other feature film credits include "Party Monster," and the Warner Bros. film, "Summer Catch."

    Wilmer moved to Los Angeles from Venezuela with his family at thirteen years old. He didn't speak a word of English. He quickly learned the language and began drama classes in high school to help assimilate him into American culture. He performed in numerous plays, including "A Midsummer Night's Dream," "Rumors," "And Never Been Kissed" and "The Impossible Years," while making his professional debut in a Spanish Pacific Bell commercial.

    At his drama teacher's suggestion, Wilmer got an agent and was immediately cast in a CBS miniseries "Four Corners" as well as the Disney Channel's "Omba Makamba." As a junior in high school, Wilmer was cast in the pilot that became "That 70's Show."
