New York's Beatrice Inn was doubly hot on Sunday night as Topher Grace and
Atonement star James McAvoy stopped through separately, and then ended up at adjacent tables. There with a group, McAvoy and his pals took a table for two – then pulled up two extra chairs as they continued chatting. More laid back at the neighboring table, the former That '70s Show star played it cool by himself before moving to the main room, where he was surrounded by people for the rest of the night.

For In Good Company, Topher Grace climbs over ad exec Dennis Quaid to reach the top of the corporate ladder – and to fall in love with his daughter (Scarlett Johansson). But off-camera Grace says he has plenty to learn from the veteran actor, 50. "I want to be the least good person in any project that I do," says the 26-year-old, who's best known for his seven seasons on That '70s Show. "It was certainly true of (Company)." Quaid and Grace recently talked about learning from each other, dealing with the age issue and taking risks in Hollywood.

Texan Hilary Duff plans to spend her first-ever Christmas in Los Angeles, as does Bostonian Mark Wahlberg and his 15-month-old daughter, Ella: "It's very weird with the pink houses and the palm trees and 80-degree weather.

In his new movie P.S., Topher Grace plays a would-be graduate student who becomes involved with a much-older admissions administrator (played by Laura Linney). But offscreen, his career didn't allow him to do much by way of hitting the books. "I had a one-year-in-college experience. And then someone (who) had seen me in a high school play asked me to come audition for (That '70s Show)," he said recently. "It was a real trade-off, me leaving college. We were filming on the Columbia (University) set for P.S., and there was a big part of me that wanted to kind of throw on my backpack and run away with the kids. But I do get another kind of education doing this."
