The "Oceans Eleven" remake series have had great celebrity cameos. Bruce Willis stole the uncredited show in "Oceans 12" and Topher Grace popped up in each of the first two films, as one of Brad Pitt’s celebrity card students (exclaiming “All reds!”) Unfortunately, "Spider-Man 3" kept Grace from completing the cameo trilogy.
“I was doing reshoots on this,” said Grace. “I was bummed. I actually talked to Steven Soderbergh about that and we had a thing and then I couldn’t do it.”
More than the loss of a gig, Grace regrets not taking part in the final reunion of the A-list crew. “I’m bummed because there’s nothing more fun than dropping in on that set for one or two days and hanging out with that crew. That film looks great by the way.”
For audiences, we lament that there will be no closure from Grace going from method card shark researcher to hotel room trashing wreck. “There will be no closure on the character of Topher Grace from the Oceans films.”
