The King of DC Media welcomes back, nearly one year later, The World's Greatest Extra, Jesse Heiman! Jesse will fill us in on what he's done the past year and promote his upcoming short film, Schmoolie The Deathwatcher. Joining Jesse will be producer Diana C. Zillicoffer, who will talk about Schmoolie, which is about an Orthodox Jewish teen who spends his first night alone guarding a body awaiting burial, and ends up fighting for his life!

Dubbed “The World’s Greatest Extra” and “That Guy”, Jesse Heiman is quickly becoming one of the most recognizable actors in Hollywood, appearing in over 75 films and commercials. Chances are you've seen him in movies such as The Social Network, Spider-Man, and Old School; or TV shows like The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Glee, and The Mindy Project; not to mention dozens of national commercials such as Volkswagen, Citibank, Vonage, Metro PCS, and Prego.

One of Jesse’s most recent commercials, which garnered worldwide attention, had him locking lips with supermodel Bar Rafaeli during the 2013 Super Bowl spot. Viewed by over one billion awestruck onlookers, it firmly cemented Jesse’s claim in modern pop culture.  Jesse just wrapped filming Townies with Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, and snatched a role in James Franco’s new film As I Lay Dying. Director Michael Bay even requested that Jesse appear in Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Jesse continues to further his already impressive filmography. With instantly recognizable features, a background in writing and directing, and a relentless desire to please his fans, Jesse’s future in film and television has just begun.
