The World's Greatest Extra Gets His Due, Makes Out With Supermodel

By TK | Trade News | February 1, 2013 | Comments ()


Jesse Heiman is a guy you probably don't know, but you've almost definitely seen. He's been in dozens of movies and television shows (including 31 episodes of "Chuck" as one of the Buy More nerds). He's been in everything from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man to "NCIS" to "Curb Your Enthusiasm" to The Social Network. He's been in everything... as an extra (The "world's greatest extra," according to the Internet). In the interest of full disclosure, he grew up not too far from me, and his older brother is a friend of mine. But more importantly, the man is finally getting his due in one of the weirdest Super Bowl commercials ever, the newest in the ubiquitous Go Daddy commercials.

I've got the weirdest boner right now.

Seriously though, the commercial is pretty goofy and under normal circumstances I'd never bother writing up a friggin' Go Daddy commercial. But Heiman's story is actually pretty unusual -- he's literally built a career out of bit parts. He's been on Leno, interviewed on ABC News, he's got a Youtube video that compiles his appearances that's gotten almost 3 million hits, and he's, well, he's that guy. That guy in that thing, that show, you know? The one with the face? You know? With the hair? That one.

It's just nice to know that all that hard work and dedication to being in the background can result in making out with Bar Refaeli. That's the American way, folks.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    For some strange reason I thought of Trading Places, with the Weinstein Brothers making a bet with each other as to whether or not one of them could get an Oscar nomination for Jesse Heiman... in a Bret Ratner movie.
    Because you know they could.

    Someone get Peter Griffin some chapstick, Jesus.

    I've been keeping an eye out for this guy for years (ever since I first saw him in Chuck). I guess I shouldn't be surprised that he's kind of a thing.

  • e jerry powell

    If gorgeous supermodels is what you're into, anyway. I guess if Brad Fisher wanted to make out with me, even just for a commercial...

    (Though for the sake of accuracy, Brad Fisher is doing more painting than modeling these days, and only comes out of retirement when John Bartlett needs him for a retro-wear show.)

    More exposure and job ops may be his due (and good on him), but the supermodel? Nope, can't convince me that's his due.

    She's way prettier than Giselle. Why do people think Giselle is hot? Tom Brady is prettier than Giselle.

    It always has to be said.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I'm 99.8% sure it doesn't. It's not a competition. There are enough objectifiable women to go around.

    Ssstank yuse, Madame Julien.

    I'll gladly pitch in for the other .2%.

    Ayup. Giselle is glorious. So's Bar. They both win.

  • PerpetualIntern

    I enjoy your use of Ayup. Well done.

  • Bedewcrock

    :) you win.

    What's interesting is how young he looks! He's 34 years old, but he still looks like a teen. He was doing the "teen" thing back in the first American Pie movie.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Well, this is a good thing. Dumb broad must feel quite privileged.

    Just saying (the best band name of all time) Judd Nelson's Fist gets the point across. We all know what you mean. Brevity, which this comment doesn't have.

  • JJ

    You may know him from such roles as "Locker Room Student - with Inhaler," "Piggly Wiggly Shopper," and "Member of Wil Wheaton's Entourage."

    The luckiest actor I've ever seen was some unknown schlub named Lucas Caleb Rooney who played opposite Eliza Dushku in a little seen film called On Broadway. They had a major make-out session.

    Yeah, this guy..

  • Mark Ollen

    I am jealous. That is all.

  • BWeaves

    His YouTube video is cute. He's like Ricky Gervais in Extras, always leaning into the scene to make sure his face is seen or his glasses reflect the light. Given how he looks, he's picked a good route to stardom. I bet it's getting him laid.

  • SchmidtUltra

    Slow clap.

  • John G.

    The foley artist was having too much fun with those lip sounds. I'm gonna go brush my teeth.

  • the dude

    fuck she's hot. And he's not. But her hotness makes the kiss hot
