Justin Longs Says He's Still the Mac Guy

Justin Longs Says He's Still the Mac Guy

by , 1:35 PM EST, November 13th, 2006

In a post on his own Web site, Justin Long says that he's still playing the "Mac Guy" in Apple's commercials, and isn't sure how the rumor that he was done with the ads got started. He also said that he loves working with "PC Guy" John Hodgman.

Mr. Long's post from November 13 states "as for the Mac commercials, I don't know where that report came from that said I wasn't going to do anymore - I'm literally setting my alarm right now to wake up for a Mac shoot tomorrow."

Radar reported last week that Mr. Long would not be appearing in any more commercials for the Macintosh. A representative for Mr. Long was quoted as saying Every ad you see Justin in is for that previous time period only. There's no long-term deal with him. Justin's a movie star, not a commercial guy.

The commercials Mr. Long is shooting now are for the holiday season, and he plans to continue working with Apple for the foreseeable future.
