LL Cool J, Matt LeBlanc and Other TV Stars Discuss the Most Memorable Ads They Appeared In

Gap, Heinz and Ameritrade spots helped put them on the map

Last summer, Adweek asked TV actors to reflect on their most memorable ads, and then another group shared their thoughts last fall. Now, a new collection of stars—including LL Cool J, Katharine McPhee and Matt LeBlanc—looked back on the commercials that helped get them on their way.
