We got the Heisman!

Over this past year, Penn has been creating some very cool looking commercials that I believe had been airing during the NCAA games.

...I just found this commercial about a famous Penn alum sports hero. To be honest, I hadn't known this guy was an alum.

Click here to check out the commercial.

If you missed the other commercials Penn has created:

Elizabeth Banks (C'96) to star in Sisters horror film

Elizabeth Banks (C'96) will star in the horror remake A Tale of Two Sisters for DreamWorks.

From the Hollywood Reporter, "Based on the Kim Jee-Woon's 2003 Korean horror film of the same name, the story revolves around two sisters who return home to their father after spending time in a mental institution. Their recovery is hindered by their cruel stepmother's (Banks) obsessiveness and an interfering ghost."
