John Doman and UPenn and The Wire and Damages

So since I posted about THIS Penn alum's commercial, I keep on getting more and more commercial submissions.

I showed you THIS comical Penn alum's toilet paper commercial, and today, I've got a commercial from another Penn alum actor who is new to DT, but probably familiar to many of you.

More about this actor and his touching commercial after the jump!



If you're a fan of "The Wire" or "Oz" then you'll know John Doman (C'66).  John is best known for playing Deputy Police Commissioner William Rawls on HBO series "The Wire" from 2002 to 2008 and Colonel Edward Galson on "Oz" in 2001.  As you'll, see, he has a ton of tv credits!

In the somewhat long (2 minutes) Hallmark commercial you'll see below, John plays a taxi cab driver.  Watch this to the end and I promise it will move you.


Trivia:  At Penn, John majored in English Literature and played varsity football.  Apparently, John, like many ambitious Penn alumni, followed his passion and made a career change after being an advertising executive. (source)

Thank you to Ty A. Furman (Ed.D. '08, Director University Life Arts Initiatives) for the tip!
