Bajan in Hollywood Sean Michael Field lands another major commercial – AAMCO Auto Repair

Talent, hard work paying off for a nice guy in a tough business

Another big company has turned to Hollywood-based Sean Michael Field to bring their image to America. AAMCO, one of the largest auto repair networks in the USA is “fielding” (ed: couldn’t help it!) a new television commercial on June 1st starring our friend.

We’ve been following Sean’s acting career since he made the girls swoon with his HIV condom advert a few years back. (Shona just walked by, saw what I wrote and is starting to giggle because she remembers the commercial.)

I don’t know much about the movie or television business, but if I look at Sean Field’s work over the past few years the word that comes to mind is “versatile”. He takes a variety of rolls and excels at each one right from macho sexy, to romantic, to a bit of comedy (his KFC commercial) to sinister bad guy.

According to the Internet Movie Database (IMDB), Sean has a couple of new movies on the go too.

It’s so good to see a truly decent guy doing well and progressing in a tough town like Hollywood. We look forward to seeing his Sean’s AAMCO commercial soon. We’ll let you know if we find it online next month.

As an aside, it doesn’t happen too often that Barbados Free Press scoops Ian Bourne and The Bajan Reporter on an entertainment industry story but it looks like we’ve done it this time!   🙂

Will Jay Leno’s return kill Conan O’Brien’s The Tonight Show? Leno’s guests: Rihanna, Jay-Z, Kanye West

conan-sinking-ship a

Marcus and Shona confess: “We haven’t watched The Tonight Show since the second night Conan O’Brien took over.”

Ok, there are probably many folks who love O’Brien and good for them, but Marcus and I haven’t fired up the satellite for NBC’s The Tonight Show in two months. Instead, we’ve been getting to sleep a little earlier – or not! 😉

But everything changes for us and for Conan O’Brien on September 14th when The Jay Leno Show hits television at 10pm. Now we can have our Jay Leno and we don’t have to stay up late to watch him. How many folks were like us and enjoyed Leno so much they stayed up late to watch him? According to Wikipedia (I know, I know! You can’t trust Wiki but here it is.) O’Brien is attracting two million fewer viewer per night than Leno’s average, so I guess we and a few other viewers were more loyal to Leno than to the show.

Jay Leno’s new show will attract millions of his old fans and that could be bad for Conan O’Brien’s The Tonight Show as people discover that they don’t have to stay up half the night to enjoy television.

Rihanna, Jay-Z, Kanye West to appear on The Jay Leno Show

Rihanna, Jay-Z and Kanye West will sing on opening night of the first Jay Leno Show. For Rihanna this will be her first major appearance since that nasty incident of domestic violence by… what was that guy’s name again?

We’d be watching Jay Leno anyways, but with Rihanna and her friends… that’s a treat!

See you on September 14th.
