How Do You Find Out the Names of Actors and Actresses From TV Commercials?
A number of online sources, such as AdWhois.com, Clipland, Who Is that Actor and IMDb, give the names of actors and actresses from TV commercials. For example, AdWhois.com allows users to search for actors and actresses from TV commercials by commercial and by actor. It features clips and images from current and popular television commercials and give details about the appearing actors and actresses.
Clipland is a database for all types of short-form media, though it is primarily a music video database. Many directors, actors, actresses, cinematographers and directors of photography work in both music videos and television commercials and are therefore relevant to the Clipland database.
Who Is that Actor is a blog that posts images of popular television commercials and headshots of the appearing actors and actresses. This resource also offers video clips of the ads in which the actors and actresses appear and gives information about the previous acting credits and other commercial appearances of the actors and actresses.
The IMDb database gives information about some of the most recognizable commercial actors and actresses as of 2015. Some of these include Stephanie Courtney, who plays Flo, the Progressive Insurance commercial spokesperson; Dean Winters, who plays Mayhem, the Allstate Insurance spokesperson; and Vince Offer from the Sham-wow commercials.
