At one point on this website many years ago, my top search became people on the hunt to find out who the Barilla Pasta guy was in a popular tv commercial (there he is on the left – he’s cute, right?). I couldn’t find a thing on him at the time, but it didn’t stop me from posting about him. He reminded me a lot of fake boyfriends Anderson Cooper (ALSO one of the top searches that brings people to this site) and Michael Vartan.
Even today I occasionally get people visiting Cootiehog after searching on the Barilla Pasta dude.
Wondering which commercial I’m talking about? Go watch the “Little Secret” commercial on YouTube.
Okay, so imagine my surprise the other day when I got an email from a gentleman who finally had the answer! The actor’s name is Roberto Farnesi and apparently he is a popular actor in Italy. The man who emailed me claimed that he worked with Roberto and came across my blog and thought he’d let me know who that actor was. Very cool.
Because you know I’ll be on the hunt to watch some Italian movies over the next few months. I don’t mind subtitles one bit.
So thanks Marcello, for finally providing the answer!
