Remember the Super Bowl commercial with the nerd kissing the supermodel? Well, one of those people has been in over 60 films and TV shows and worked with the likes of Steven Spielberg, David Fincher, and Michael Bay; the other one is supermodel Bar Refaeli (whose IMDb profile looks sad in comparison). This veteran actor's name is Jesse Heiman, and he was in 10 movies and TV shows in 2011 alone. In 2012, he was in seven more.
How is that even possible? Because he has made a career out of looking like a teenage dork despite being now in his mid-30s, and so every director just sticks him in the background. Don't say you've never seen him before, because yes, you have.

Of course, he doesn't say anything in any of these movies and only appears onscreen for a few seconds, but how many hit movies have you not talked in? Jesse's first role was in American Pie 2, in which he played a non-speaking member of the infamous band camp. He moved on from high school to college in Will Ferrell's Old School, where he was one of the pledges. And into the corporate world in Transformers 3 when Michael Bay personally picked him for the role of "guy walking in the office."

He also gets screen time in The Social Network, Catch Me If You Can, Spiderman, 17 Again, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!, and Van Wilder.
But Jesse isn't a snob: Unlike some of his fellow film stars, he has nothing against doing TV. In fact, he's been in pretty much every show ever, including The Big Bang Theory, Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development, How I Met Your Mother, Entourage, My Name Is Earl, Bones, Curb Your Enthusiasm, NCIS, Chuck, Monk, The O.C., and Reno 911!

Slacker says he was in Warrant for like 8 sec. Slacker actually turned them down. Slacker does not believe that Steve’s claims to fame are real.

Steve claims that he invented the action of putting your wind shield wipers up when it is cold outside. As well as the tuna and egg salad sandwich. He holds the record for most strike outs in a game at his old high school.

Do you have a claim to fame? What are you famous for?

I am Mae West’s great niece. I am related to the guy that created the chipmunks (Ross Bagdasarian) and Buddy Ebsen yup you guessed it Jed Clampett from the Beverly hillbillies. I have been an extra in many small films and the lead in one of the films entered in the 48 hour film project. Oh and of course I work for Slacker and Steve, Duh!
