Jesse Franklin Heiman (born May 23, 1978) is an American actor, best known for his uncredited work as an extra in a wide variety of films and television shows[1] and for appearing with Bar Refaeli and Danica Patrick in a Go Daddy commercial at Super Bowl XLVII, in which Rafaeli, a supermodel, and Heiman share a graphic french kiss.[2] On April 11, 2011 Jesse appeared as a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno alongside with Jamie Foxx. Despite his age, he still portrays teenagers and young adults as an extra. As a play on the Go Daddy commercial, singer Michael Bublé cast Heiman in the opening scene of his video It's a Beautiful Day where Bublé walks in on Jaime Pressly, who plays his significant other in the comical video, and Heiman sharing a kiss, to which Bublé responds by singing the song.

Early life

Jesse Heiman was born in Boston on May 23, 1978, moving to Austin, Texas in 1989 where he attended West Ridge Middle School, Westlake High School, and Texas State University–San Marcos. Heiman graduated in May 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts in English and moved to Los Angeles in September.

Heiman began acting as a background extra in November 2000 and has appeared in innumerable films, television shows, commercials, and music videos.


Heiman's first major role was in American Pie 2. His first speaking role was on the short lived television show Maybe It's Me. Other roles include being one of the pledges in the film Old School and the MTV spring break show Camp Cool Cancun. He previously guest starred in the TV shows NCIS, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Entourage, Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide and was an extra as a BuyMore Employee on NBC's Chuck.

Heiman portrayed Dan Bronson for a Lost-themed viral video during the 2008 Comic-Con.

On March 14, 2011, a video compilation was uploaded to YouTube, showing clips of Heiman's various appearances.[3] Within days of the video being online, the video had over 2 million views.

Heiman appeared in Go Daddy's Super Bowl XLVII commercial, acting with the model Bar Refaeli (with whom he intimately kisses) and NASCAR driver and perennial Go Daddy pitchwoman Danica Patrick.[4][5] Following the response to GoDaddy's Super Bowl XLVII commercial, Los Angeles based porn company Assence Films extended an offer to Heiman to appear in an adult film of his choosing. Heiman responded to the offer saying "I will hold out for Playgirl."[6]
