and the livin' is busy! Ogilvy and Mather flew Gil (and
Kevin) to New York for still more photo and internet shoots,
such as seen here in this advertisement in Byte
and Switch Magazine.
this summer, the trailer for the Nancy Meyers' film
Holiday hit the theaters, and Gil's scene is in it!
So, even though the film won't be released until December,
Gil's in the movies this summer, at least, technically!
And NBC has rerun Gil's episode of My Name is Earl,
and Gil's scene from Desperate Housewives was used
in the "Previously" clip on the show.
IBM campaign keeps on rolling! The Ogilvy and Mather folks
booked Gil (and his trusty sidekick Kevin Christy) for
several more photographic layouts for magazines. Gil and
Kevin are now visible in every computer magazine in existence,
or so it seems! Even more exciting, Gil and Kevin's images
are being used in an extensive Internet campaign, some
of which can be seen on the IBM website here

Gil and Kevin also recorded some radio spots for IBM,
which are now being heard in
the Washington, DC area! And the print ads are being shown
all around the world, in 12 different languages, in such
magazines as InfoWorld, EWeek, and Computer World.
year starts off with a bang as Gil books a few days
on the newest Kate Winslet film
The Holiday, and an episode of Desperate Housewives,
all in the same week!
The Holiday, the latest film by Nancy Meyers (Something's
Gotta Give, What Women Want), Gil plays a Customs
Officer that gives Kate a very hard time as she tries
to enter the country for a vacation. Kate was an extremely
gracious actor on the set, and a very approachable
person while shooting the movie. And Nancy Meyers
was a riot!
in the film are Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, and Jack Black,
none of whom Gil got to meet, but that's literally
Desperate Housewives, Gil plays the Justice of the
Peace that marries Terri Hatcher and Dick Burgi (a
marriage of convenience for Terri's character's health
insurance). Terri and Dick were also quite gracious,
and Desperate Housewives had one of the smoothest-operating
sets Gil has ever had the good fortune to work on.
from everyone knowing their job and doing it efficiently
and well, there was a general feeling of fun and
camaraderie through out the shoot. And even though
Gil only had a few lines in one scene, the cast
and crew invited him to stay for dinner (fajitas
on the lot) after his work was done!
episode aired on Feb. 19!
