Ben Weber, didn't know his name, until I just looked it up.  Always knew him as Skipper from Sex and the City.  Didn't like his character but thought he was totally miscast; being juvenile and not that sexy (they played him as a young hunk--that's the problem).  Anyway, since then I have only seen him on many, many commercials.  Famously, he did the Gas-X guy on an interview and was one of the Geico Cavemen but of course you wouldn't know it.  He has also been in a Comcast, FedEx and Ameriquest. His looks have quickly gone downhill and IMDB shows his birthday as more than 10 years younger than me but he doesn't look it.  He has greasy-looking hair and dark circles under his eyes--all the time.  One of his commercials he and his wife were trying to sneak in a "quicky" and it is so gross.  Currently he is in about 3 different ads, one I think for a phone company and last night I saw the Oscar Mayer Pulled Pork.
 
Don't understand why he is used so much since he is so unappealing.
 
A new study finds that people who are chipper & happy live longer. Which is surprising because people who aren't chipper & happy want to kill people who are always chipper & happy. David Letterman

I don't recall ever seeing him before, although from your list I'm sure I have. Pretty forgettable. Which is good casting if you're just doing a commercial and not a longer term campaign. With forgettable actors you remember the product, as opposed to memorable actors/characters and you can't remember what they were selling.

Seems he's been in a million ads.  Or at least a dozen.

Reminds me of Tom Hanks Dead
And the prophet said:
"And lo, the beast looked upon the face of beauty. And it stayed its hand from killing. And from that day it was as one dead".
