- The Ditz: Thanks to That '70s Show and Dude, Where's My Car?, he's essentially been Type Cast as this.
- Hidden Depths: Not so much hidden anymore, but most people don't expect the guy who played Kelso to be a passionate advocate in the fight against human trafficking.
- Mr. Fanservice: He is a former model and is constantly part of many "Hollywood hottest/most handsome actors" lists.
- Playing Against Type: Appears to have started doing this, usually being cast as a brainy genius in a lot of his later appearances in shows. This is likely an attempt to break his Kelso image from That '70s Show.
- Papa Wolf: He's developed into this in recent years with his children, and his main reason for starting his anti-trafficking organization is due fear that it could happen to his children or those of others.
- Romance on the Set: Double Subverted. He and Mila Kunis only became a couple off-screen seven years after That '70s Show ended.
- Star-Making Role: In That '70s Show.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He stands 6'2.
- Typecasting: Seems to be mostly cast as The Ditz thanks to his Star-Making Role in That '70s Show. It seems to be an image he's attempting to break, as a lot of his later roles usually cast him as a brainy character.
- What Could Have Been:
- Lost the role of Danny Walker in Pearl Harbor to Josh Hartnett.
- Lost the lead role of Drew Baylor in Elizabethtown to Orlando Bloom when Cameron Crowe decided he wanted an actor that had a solid resume consisting of Theatre and Drama school training.
- Was considered for the role of Batman in Batman Begins, which eventually went to Christian Bale.
