SJMC alum wins big playing “the nerd” in Super Bowl commercial

SJMC alum Jesse Heiman has made quite a name for himself as “Hollywood’s Favorite Extra.” In fact, his resume boasts appearances in more than 100 commercials, popular television shows such as “Chuck” and “Monk,” and feature films including “Old School,” “American Pie 2,” and “The Social Network” to name a few.

Most recently, Heiman is receiving a great deal of buzz for his role as computer nerd, “Walter” in a GoDaddy ad that aired during the 2013 Super Bowl in which he kisses Israeli supermodel Bar Rafaeli. Despite some controversy from the spot, Jesse stated in a recent interview with CNET that he has gotten positive exposure out of it.

“I’ve actually had guys tweet me that they wish they were me, and girls tweet me saying they wish they were Bar.”

Originally a Boston native, Heiman moved to Austin, Texas for school. The 34-year-old actor graduated from Texas State University-San Marcos with a B.A. degree where he studied English and Mass Communication. Currently, he resides in Redondo Beach, California.
