Oldest had the 26th quickest freshman girl 5K time in the state this fall. Best part was that she pretty much took it upon herself to keep herself in shape all spring and summer until XC practice started. I wish I had a fraction of her drive when I was her age.

Can you PM me this? I’ve always been like a rich guy buying bananas when it comes to commercials. No idea if these things PAY or if they get a couple hundred and “exposure”.

Commercial for Jeep? If it's national, I bet it's enough money to live on for a year, assuming that 5 minute spot she was in that had the tiny house was a somewhat realistic look into her lifestyle. So, what I'm saying is $50k

I've always wondered about what some of the well known commercial actors make. People like Flo and Jamie from Progressive and Lily from ATT. These are all professional actors who were looking for work, then it turns out that they end up with these iconic commercial presences. Which means they likely aren't going to be cast in much else (Lily has had a few credits I suppose). But I figure national campaigns for some of the more ubiquitous firms pay pretty dang well.

Sabo, run down the road and ask around, please.

Don’t know how reliable this link is, but they estimate Flo makes about 2 million a year from Progressive.

I have a strong dislike of flo and all other characters from progressive ad.

Lily bothers me less but really don't like some of those ads.

Probably a big difference in salary for person in jeep ad and character in company ongoing marketing campaign. I.e random dude in subway ad and Jared.

My friend's brother was in a couple long running national ads. My understanding was (and this was 15-20 years ago) that the pay isn't much until the commercial stays on the air for a certain amount of time (6 weeks is sticking in my head, but I really don't remember). He had a commercial that played constantly for months, I remember a discussion about it here because it played constantly during the NCAA basketball tourney. Wish I could remember the ad or why we discussed it. I'm thinking maybe a VW ad and something about a gas station.

Just Googled, he is now a main character on a network TV drama! Happy to see he has a solid and steady career. When I met him, he was lamenting that as a Korean actor, he could only get rolls as "Korean guy," but it seems like he can also play Korean doctor, Korean lawyer, Korean detective... My son is obsessed with The Office, and we just saw the episode my friend's brother was in. He had maybe a 5 minute role, but such a cool thing to experience.

A lot of times, when a character is featured in an entire marketing campaign (like Flo from Progressive), they sign a non-compete deal, which means the campaign is the only thing they can appear in for whatever amount of time, including going beyond when the campaign stops running. They generally get compensated through an annual personal services contract.

The "can you hear me now" guy who did Verizon ads for multiple years eventually had his non-compete end, which is why he now shows up in the occasional Sprint ad.

Quick, name her character!

I admitted she had some credits, including a space show that wasn't terrible but I think only got like a 10 episode run.

Nope, he played a guy from an ad agency filming a commercial for Dunder Mifflin, I think it was season 3. Asian Jim was Randall Park, who is a legit star now.

Yeah, I was thinking you wouldn't have needed to Google Randall... he's blown up the last 5 years.

Trying to remember that episode... I've been re-watching and listening to The Office Ladies and that one is slipping my mind for some reason.

Ah, I'm only caught up to the early part of S4... Local Ad was S4, Ep9

She does have a name: Milana Vayntrub

She's been a guest on Doug Loves Movies a few times, and is pretty fun from what I remember.
