Who's that actress in that commercial?

There's a couple driving across the country and they download geographically appropriate songs along the way (such as All My Exes Live in Texas and Born on the Bayou). Here it is.

The female half of this couple looks very familiar to me. Or maybe she seems familiar because I find her very attractive. Anybody know who she is or where I've seen her before?

Judging from that clip she reminds me of Lola Glaudini who played FBI Agent Deborah Ciccerone / Danielle Ciccolella / on The Sopranos (19992007)
and was Adriana's "friend" until Christopher ran her off.

So far, though, her Other Works page doesn't show that particular commercial.

Speaking of "who's that actress?," you know those incredibly annoying commercials where celebs talk to their phones in "hilarious" ways, like John Malkovich asking for a joke and life advice? I always put them on mute.

But who is the dark-haired kooky girl who wants tomato soup delivered? I'm sure she is very famous and I am supposed to know who the hell she is--but they give you no clue in the ad, and whatever TV show or movie she's done, I haven't seen it.

Ah. Thank you. I have heard the name, but would not recognize her if she ran up and bit me.

I did watch the Sopranos, and I remember that character. If it's not her, it looks enough like her that it may be why she seems familiar. And if it is her, she's looking damn fine at 40!

I for one would not mind terribly if Zooey Deschanel ran up and bit me. (Well, a playful little nip, anyway, not enough to break the skin. I'm not into that.)

Which is a shame because then they need to track her down and dissect her brain to check for rabies.

Why is the man always driving in that commercial? Seems to me it would work better if they alternated, with the passenger singing along with the radio to the annoyance of the driver, until they're in chorus on the last song.

Looks like she had a small role in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, which is her only credit I've seen. I may need to seek out some of her comedy work now.

I always mute them, too. I especially dislike the one with Zooey Deschanel.

Talented family; sister's an actress, mother's an actress, dad's a cinematographer (with five Oscar noms).

Dang. That's kind of sad that she doesn't have any "Known For" entries on her IMDB listing.

Maybe next year.

Great site. Redheads seem to be rather over-represented at the moment.



That's not a complaint, just an observation.

You say that as if it were possible.

I meant "over-represented" in the sense that they seem to be present in a greater percentage than redheads in the general population. That's as opposed to "saturation", the point at which the market has no need or capacity to admit any additional redheads; a situation which exists, as you rightly suggest, in theory only.

And to which I would raise no objection, were it ever to come to pass.

Perhaps the OP is thinking of Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, The West Wing)? The woman in the ad looks a lot like her at least to me.

She reminds me of Sarah Polley, a little bit.

You know, I kind of agree, especially in the Denver scene. That may be what triggered my "she looks familiar" reaction.

So I checked out a bit of Ingrid Haas's work last night. She is (Was? The website doesn't seem to exist) half of a musical comedy duo called "Charity and Chastity." Their material, from what I saw, ranges from sexual double-entendre to out-and-out dirty. They're adorable, but in a calculated sort of way, and somewhat funny, though the schtick wears thin rather quickly.

Ingrid seems to have a quality. I won't be surprised if we see more of her.

I could never say this. I could watch her read from a telephone book for 12 hours straight.

Maybe they preferred the continuity of having the two people sitting in the same places in each scene.
