E! Entertainment Special - "30 Seconds To Stardom: Commercials' Most Famous Faces" Premieres June 15th at 10pm ET/PT on E!

From 'The Most Interesting Man In The World' To William Shatner's Sidekick 'Naomi Pryce' E! Profiles

Famous Faces From TV's Most Popular Commercials

Special also features vintage commercials starring today's hottest celebrities before they were A-List

(Los Angeles, CA, June 8, 2011) - Chances are you haven't heard of Jonathan Goldsmith, Farris Patton or Sacheen Padilla, but if you've watched television lately, we'd be willing to bet you've seen them. Goldsmith dashes around the globe as the "most interesting man in the world." Patton keeps "dirty mouths" clean and "fabulous" and Padilla playfully spars with William Shatner as sexy "Naomi Pryce." The E! Special profiles theses actors and some other recognizable - but not yet famous - faces and explains how these small screen bookings can change a performer's life. The 30 minute special also features vintage commercials from the 80's and 90's starring some of today's hottest celebs. From Leo to Ben to Lindsey, viewers will see the humble beginnings of Hollywood's A-listers when they appeared in commercials before they got their "big break." The E! Entertainment Special 30 Seconds To Stardom: Commercials' Most Famous Faces airs on June 15th at 10:00 pm ET/PT only on E!

Being "the most interesting man in the world" has its perks - but it took Jonathan Goldsmith four decades to achieve them. In his early years he enjoyed moderate success as an actor playing bit parts, usually as a villain, in TV and small films. Fast-forward a few decades and now, after booking one particular commercial, Goldsmith is stopped on the street, asked for autographs and brings home a hefty residual paycheck. "My world has changed completely," he says. Also featured in the special is the actor "dude" who was made famous for selling computers. E! examines how his life changed after the successful campaign and where his career is today.

Viewers of "30 Seconds To Stardom: Commercials' Most Famous Faces" will get a chance to see a number of commercials starring some of today's biggest names back from their days "pounding the pavement." Amoung others, the special shows Steve Carrell hawking chicken, Leighton Meester selling facewash and Taylor Momson playing in the kitchen - all before they were household names and just like any other LA hopeful, praying to make it big.

This unique look at the world of commercial actors premieres on June 15th at 10:00 PM, ET/PT only on E!
