    So I am cruising to the U of Podunk's Pro Day today, and hear a Midas commercial pop up. The simple voiceover was by MARTIN SHEEN!!!

    Oh, how the leader of free world has fallen.

    Hey, amusing anecdotes about the history of the world ain't paying the light bill.

    Well, I was going to suggest hopefully that Martin Sheen's brother, whose voice is the same, might have been doing the VO, but a story in Ad Age says it is indeed The Martin.

    I await that happy day when the Obamas do ads for Maaco.

    While I enjoy both actors immensely, I've got to think Martin Sheen and James Earl Jones are two of the more overrated actors around. They are both exceptional character actors, but when you look at their resumes, you just kind of assume there would be more to them. Their junk to quality ratio is just too high. But playing The President has a way of elevating anyone's stature.

    On the other hand, I do think that five dollars is too high a price to pay for muffler repair.

    It could be worse, he could be the voice of a bee for Nasonex commercials like another international movie star.

    I know it's hard to believe, but I prayed for wisdom. And a new muffler.
