Midway through watching the 1980s flashback comedy "Take Me Home Tonight," it hit us. Dan Fogler, Topher Grace's sidekick in the movie, has become this generation's Curtis Armstrong, the jowly, leering wingman to today's erstwhile young film leads. And it wasn't just the period setting that drove the connection home. Or the physical resemblance ? which is striking ? though Fogler, perhaps, does have a couple more ticks on the waistband.
