Before becoming an overnight star courtesy of a rather-controversial Super Bowl commercial with GoDaddy, Jesse Heiman was well-known for being one of the most popular extras in Hollywood; and now, we know that he is going to be back again on one of his past TV destinations: “The Big Bang Theory.”
During a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest today (which is one of the many stops that the actor has been on as of late), Heiman confirmed that he is going to be a part of the Valentine’s Day episode of the show airing on February 14. However, it should be noted that he will once again be in his familiar role as an extra, and actually does not have any speaking part at all. (He last appeared as a member of Wil Wheaton’s entourage on the show.)
While Heiman has more than sixty credits to his name, he is perhaps best known for his appearance in dozens of episodes of “Chuck” as Buy More employee Fernando. He actually had a chance to have a rare speaking line during the show’s series finale, which was possibly as both a thank-you to him and all the diehard fans that become fascinated with the character over the years. With his signature look, it is pretty easy to see why Heiman has become so popular for many of these gigs.
As for the future, Jesse has reportedly been approached for a variety of gigs over the past 24 hours, but he is currently letting his manager take all requests while he takes in all of the support from the big day.
What did you think of the ad, and do you think that Heiman is going to land some more TV roles specifically because of this commercial? If you want to check out the “Big Bang Theory” season 6 spot from the Super Bowl, you can do so over at the link here.
