Guy in the AT&T U-Verse Commercials Revealed [VIDEO]
Who is that guy in the AT&T commercials asking preschoolers to decide which is better, faster or slower? Bigger or Smaller? Doing two things at once or just one? After an exhaustive search that literally took a few intense minutes searching the depths of Google (I’m really out of shape), I have found the answer!
If you enjoy totally worthless knowledge that will benefit your life in no way, shape, or form, the internet is a great place. Specifically, the Internet Movie Database, or as those in the know call it, imdb.com. I have their app on both my phone and my iPad for those times when I see and actor or actress and think, “They look familiar, where have I seen them before.”
While it works great for movies, TV shows, and even video games, the downside to IMDB is it doesn’t offer much in finding the name of actors or actresses that star in commercials. For that info, your best bet is Google (or check back here and I’ll have it for you).
Now then, on to the big reveal. The man playing the deadpan, straight man to the preschoolers wacky, funny guy is Beck Bennett. A 28-year old up and coming comedic actor who has been in a number of independent movies, runs his own YouTube channel (who doesn’t these days) featuring a recurring bit called “Theater of Life” where he and buddy named, “Eric” simply narrate what they see, and is one of the founders of the “Good Neighbor” comedy troupe who recently turned in pilot to Comedy Central called, “The Good Neighbor Show” about a local late night talk show that is falling apart.
So there you go. Now you can amaze your friends with knowledge they probably didn’t want in the first place.
Watch Beck and the kids in action.
