For up-and-coming comedians and small-role television actors, commercials are like night jobs — they help pay the bills, but you don’t necessarily want everyone knowing about them. Unfortunately for the funny men and women who star in spots selling everything from cars to credit cards, working in TV isn’t exactly “behind-the-scenes.” But given the right script, shilling for corporate America can actually enhance a lesser-known’s career. If nothing else, there’s always DVR technology, which might prevent a certain side job from ever seeing the light of day in the first place. Below I’ve listed some of the better known commercial actors along with what I believe is their best work. Think of it as an opportunity to put some names next to a few faces you’re sure to recognize.
