What happened to the Sprint guy??

25 March 2008
What ever happened to that geeky sweet faced "Sprint guy" on the Alltel commercials? I know! I know!

According to his blog on mySpace (now set to private)...

Not in the new Alltel commercials

I've had a lot of people write and ask me about this, so I thought it'd be easiest to just write a blog. I hate that word, I don't know if I've ever typed the word blog before. it even looks dumb. Anyway. I'm no longer 'The Sprint Guy' in the Alltel commercials. Basically, Alltel wanted to sign me (and the rest of the guys) through the end of 2008. Everyone else signed on except me. I didn't want to be known as that guy at the expense of other things I'd rather do, like TV and movies. It may not have hurt, but who knows. Also, Alltel was unable to offer a contract that addressed specific concerns my representation had with it. So, we decided it would be best to move on. I think that's about it. Thanks for the messages from friends and strangers, glad you found me entertaining in those commercials, or at least recognized my presence and consequent lack thereof in said commercials.

And did you know he was from Mentor, OH? Check out this article from The Plain Dealer. And here is an article about Chad's Circle from Buzz about all of the original guys.

And so my dear readers, as all good things must come to an end... let's hope they don't replace me with someone with a bad (read fake) afro. It's the poor man's Sprint guy for us from now on, but you're still getting the REAL THING here at So Wonderful, So Marvelous.
