‘I’m the guy from that penis pump infomercial’ says vaguely familiar actor
AFTRA member Bob Donner has appeared in more than 15 informercials or corporate videos since 1987, giving him a wealth of experience he hopes to draw on if a SAG strike comes to pass.
“Studios can’t just stop making movies,” said Donner. “Sooner or later they’ll need someone to play Hercules or Superman or maybe even the next [James] Bond. And I’ve got the chops to do just that.”
Added Donner: “I’m the guy from that penis pump commercial.”
When asked what he thought of AFTRA members taking the jobs of guild members, SAG President Alan Rosenberg was diplomatic.
“Well, we’re supposed to be negotiating partners with AFTRA in this whole thing, so I can’t be too critical of them,” he said. “At the same time, it’s kind of a joke, right? Last time I checked, Paramount wasn’t about to prop up its latest tentpole with a guy who once did voiceover work for a Taco Bell radio commercial.”
“I can do everything Russell Crowe can do, for a fraction of the price,” he said. “Just give my new plugs a week to take hold, and I’m good to go.”
