World's most famous extra, Jesse Heiman, featured in Metro PCS commercial as Billy the Intern.

(Updated Feb. 06, 2013, Congratulations to Jesse Heiman, who appeared in a Go Daddy Super Bowl ad sloppy kissing Bar Refaeli, and who I've seen on a couple more commercials in just the past few days. 
Maybe in some meandering way this article from May 19th, 2011 helped in some ever so small way, end of update.)

Props to Jesse Heiman, the reigning "most famous extra on the planet". After being noticed for being in a lot of movies as a background extra and then some, a "fan" put together a demo reel of Jesse's exploits and put it on youtube. Jesse became a celebrity as a result of that demo video.

Most recently Jesse appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Jesse's fame has grown and now he's a featured extra on the "Billy the Intern" Metro PCS commercial. In this commercial, Billy is the one who ends up upside down. I hope they paid you well, Jesse.
