And now, a word from our sponsor

Lately I've noticed that some of my favorite stars are showing up in the most unexpected places - television commercials. And some of these ads are really cute - Alan Tudyk ("Wash" from Firefly) and Dule Hill (of West Wing and Psych fame) for Direct TV is one of my favorites. Also, the Hulu commercial featuring Alec Baldwin is nothing short of inspired.


Sometimes, though, an actor isn't doing a commercial as themselves. Sometimes, they're doing it because they haven't had paying work in so long that they'll take a non-speaking role in a Taco Bell ad. And sometimes you just want to clutch that actor to your bosom and cry.

Oh, Tom Lenk. If you needed money so badly,
why didn't you just come to me?
