Jesse Heiman: From Extra to Extraordinary?

Remember that commercial of the chubby nerd that was making out with the hot model during this year’s Super Bowl?

Yeah? No? Maybe? Well that was Jesse Heiman and he’s making sure you don’t forget him.

There is a documentary, no release date at this time, in the works called “Jesse Heiman: World’s Greatest Extra” and it chronicles the rise or at least the attempt at stardom.

The film takes place over a year’s time and it’s a real heart-warming story of someone truly trying to chase their dreams professionally and evolve personally too. It also taps into the horrible judgmental side that still exists in people.

Apparently it took 50 takes for Heiman to nail the scene with the model.

Believe it or not, the GoDaddy commercial was probably not the first time that you saw Heiman on screen. He’s appeared as an extra in many big movies and TV shows, which include “The Social Network,” “Parks and Recreation,” “The Big Bang Theaory,” “The Mindy Project” and even a personal favorite of mine, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”

If you’d like to see the film come to fruition, you can donate to their Kickstarter campaign here.

Do you think he’s got what it takes to make it in Hollywood?
